Chained 200 and counted very very carefully twice. Still only getting 196 stitches at the end.

Hi: My name is Diana from Puerto Rico. I wanted to thank you for this lovely pattern. This will be my first blanket. Your instructions are very clear and the colors are so beautiful!! Now that we have to be closed in our homes do to COVID 19, this is really a blessing. God bless you and your family. 🤗

Dearest Lucy,

I'm writing to you all the way from Pakistan. I discovered your blog and your blanket by chance googling. I'm not sure if you'll even see or read this message since so many people follow and love and message you. I have taken crocheting back up at 34 after having learnt the basic stitches at age 10, 11, never having created a crochet project before. I've just been knitting all these years. My first project is your granny stripe blanket. im using aran yarn for it, 5mm hook, and its going to be 4.5 x 5.5 with your spot on edging. im 2/3 done almost. Your tutorials are so easy to understand, you explain each and every stitch, corner, turning, stripe, row so clearly that it is a joy following the instructions and seeing the work unfold. I'm Muslim and in my religion, a teacher and teaching is held in the highest esteem. I wish all the best for you and your family. May Allah bless you, lots of best wishes, Zokhruf from Lahore, Pakistan

I have ordered the yarn and cant wait to get started but is it possible to have a photo of the finished blanket
There is a photo on pintrest called tapecaria / granny stripe blanket which I think is yours.
the pintrest one has continuous edging??
Yours I think by what I can understand is like a box edge???
Thank you your blog site is beautiful.

Thanks very much for this pattern - I made a blanket for my great nephew who was born last month, and this pattern was really easy to follow. I did the Spot On edging too, and it finished it off really well.

Susan Doubell

This is lovely, i want to make this, will be my first blanket!


How can I get a download of this pattern?



OH MY GOSH! I love this blanket! Thank you for creating a perfect to follow pattern. I just made a "non traditional" baby blanket using 27 different colors and it came out AMAZING! I've never done granny square stripes before and I was able to whip out this blanket in a few days. I appreciate your detailed and super colorful pattern.

Just finished the Sunny granny stripe blanket. It was the first thing I'd crochetedsince I was about 12 (over 40 years ago) and it was an absolute joy thanks to the lovely colours and really great tutorial! The instructions and photos were perfect. Thank you so much for brining me back o this lovely pastime. Have a very happy 2019, Ann

Deb. Marie

Thank you so much for posting this beautiful pattern! I've made several of these blankets and LOVE them. You always inspire me to crochet. I love your blog and all your patterns and pictures!! I can't thank you enough!

Karen Thornton

Hi, I want to try this for my first crochet project but only want to use 5 different colours. Will I still need 18 x 100g balls? I’m not sure how many to order of each shade. Thanks for your help!

Christine Hunt

Can anyone give me the colour combination for the granny stripe blanket in Woodland colours as seen on the chair. I am a Granny and need the extra help with such a lovely colour combination.

Gill Reay

The sidess of my blanket seem to be outgrowing the middle- it’s not that they aren’t straight, but after about 20 rows they’e longeyr than the middle. Is this a common problem? Any suggestions as to where I’ve gone wrong??

Wendy O'Connor

I find it a lot easier to watch a small video to get the stitches going do you have any video tutorials please?

Sara R

I have had this pack for a VERY long time and I finally finished! I'm so excited to get some use out of this bright and beautiful blanket. Thank you for your creative ideas and pops of color!


So well written and easy to follow. Thanks so much! It's been a while since I did a granny stitch and just needed basic instructions to get me started again. Thanks again!


Lucy, I made the Granny Stripe using leftover yarns and my intention at the time was that it would be MY blanket. However, my daughter "borrowed" it when she went camping and it has lost its way home. But, I wanted to tell you that her friend, Autumn, fell in love with and would cuddle-up at the campfire with it each night and each night she would drag it into her tent. I purchased the Sunny Pack to make Autumn her own blanket (for Christmas) and the colors are just beautiful. Am almost done with the edging and have a feeling I'll be making another one soon. Thank you for inspiring us and taking us along with you on your yarny journey. Happy Holiday's!

Tracy Sutton

Hi Lucy new to crochet and just started this well a smaller version to practice on. Love your detailed explanations.


I have crocheted for many years but have just completed my first blanket (Granny Stripes) and am delighted. So relaxing to do and a change from tops and cardigans etc. I'm hooked and can't wait to start another blanket, a ripple one this time. Love your site. Thank you.

Helen Vette

I just love doing this blanket. I'm on to my second one now? I don't know how to share my pic on here though. Thank you for your patterns,they're so easy to follow, for someone who hasn't crocheted before. I live in Australia and have been using DK acrylic yarns, they work up a treat.


Hi Lucy. I love this blanket! I've recently purchased the yarn pack from wool warehouse as an early birthday gift for my sister in law, I'm waiting for it to arrive (in Australia).

I notice that colour printed instructions doesn't come with the yarn. Do you have a download available at all? I'd like to give her instructions to go with the yarn.

Thank you in advance!


Very pretty! I am half done making this using leftover yarn from two Cosy packs, a Coast Ripple, and the Cottage Ripple (and a few extras from my yarn stash). Am keeping this one for myself as all the other blankies were for my sweet peeps and this one is special...little bits of leftover love from all the blankies. Feeling like I just might need a "Cupcake" when this one's done.

Rowena Corlett

Oh dear just noticed last post from someone who doesn't know we have different stitch names in the UK! I wanted to say how much I am loving this pattern. I like to have several different projects on the go to include one I can do easily in the evening when watching TV and this is that one! I was going to do the cosy pattern (and will at some point ) but this is brill and so relaxing and satisfyingly! Many thanks x
