I am brand new to crochet and would just love someone to help me with how to down size this to a throw (think aged parents, throw on knee in the evening)?
I know very simple question for experienced people!

Thank you xx


Received my wool yesterday & can't believe how simple this pattern is for a beginner like me who only started to learn in August. I'm already on my 5th colour stripe, it's just so simple & soothing to work & the colours give you such a lift.

Love your site , I am interested in getting some information on the yarns you use, what ply and are they available in Australia.

Love your colour choices.


I received my yarn but I'm missing Sage, Spice, Citron, Lime, Petrol, Claret, Gold and bright pink

I received Spring green, clematis, sherbet, Aspen, Cloud blue, Pommegrante, Claret and Saffron.

Maybe they sent me the wrong package but thats ok. Could you help me incorporate the colors I received into the Granny Stripe? I've finished with Aster so I'm going to use Spring Green next. What colors would you use for Spice, Citron, Lime, Petrol, gold and bright pink.

These things happen and I don't make a fuss. I love all of these colors so it will be okay. I wanted a blanket with your colors but maybe another time.

Thanks for any help and if you're too busy then I understand.

Will be sending off for the wool....soon. Thank you so much for the pattern . Lovely,Mary


Just a quick note to clarify that I always write my patterns using UK terms, I do explain this at the very beginning of every tutorial I write. It's easy to convert to US terms if you need to...
UK dc = US sc
UK tr = US dc

It's an easy confusion to make, hope that's helped.

Very pretty. I derstand u are talking. In UK terms. I will make this blanket. Thank you.

Hi I'm sorry to tell you this but your names of the stitches are wrong you are calling a single crochet a double crochet and calling a double crochet a treble. I don't know if you want to change this at this point but look the stitches up and you will see what I mean.

Yvonne Dunmore

So beautiful and so well explained. Thank you so much for sharing with us!

Rita Detwiler

I'm just hoping I learn from your clear instructions!

Melanie Jackson

Thank you!!You write amazing tutorials, easy to follow and your not neglecting what most others do, where to stitch into... during learning that has been my downfall!
Thank you


I have just purchased the Sunny pack to crochet the Granny Stripe blanket. I am a beginner and really do appreciate your genorosity in sharing your projects. It will probably take me a while to complete but I look forward to the challenge Thank You.


Just waiting for the wool pack to arrive and I will be off xx x

Donna Wooten

Excellent tutorials, and love your color choices. I will be making one in just 4 colors, as I want it to match a bedroom decor of my daughter-in-law.. This pattern is so pretty. Looking forward to the CAL and seeing progress.


Thank you
