I am about halfway through this project but there is a little niggling detail which looks ok overall but I’d really like to put right. Between the dc and the next treble, the chain stitch that forms is very long and no matter how much I try to work tighter it is still long, big and loose.

I've tried several sample swatches up to 4 rows to check tension AND changed needle size as suggested but can't get it to stop curling. Does this go away further on?? Help!

I tried three times I get two rows done measure and get 132 cm have 45 shells.I used I hook to start off then go to G do T just keep going.Im just using pink verigated and blue verigated.2 rows each.

Hi Lucy, I think someone may have had the same problem I had. I'm new to crochet but knew there was a difference between UK and US crochet terminology. I Googled UK but unless you listen to the accent you may get US. I did 2 colours of US by mistake and it looked really loopy as their double is our treble and I have no idea what their treble is but it doesn't work for this pattern (lots of wool winding and fans are too tall and loopy!). Happily I'm on colour 4 now and it looks beautiful!

Everybody's tension is different so it will take a lot of mistakes in order for everybody to come up with the same measurements. I redid my chain and first row and come up different every time. Each time was too wide so came up with my own chain count. Came up with 112 cm wide which will be a good size blanket for me. Trying to make fit so won't run out of yarn. It would help if a gauge came with the pattern. You know, so many rows = so many cm, so many stitches = so many cm.

I've just started the third colour but mine looks holy compared to the pictures but I have the right amount of shells. What am undoing wrong! Feeling frustrated

I love this, I've followed your blog for quite a while and when asked what I wanted for my birthday I asked for one of your kits. My daughter bought me this one, I'm on the last two pistachio rows and I'm almost sad that I've nearly finished it. Your instructions are so clear to follow and you have a great way with choosing colours. Thank you. p.s. I've just ordered the cupcake kit, and I can't wait to start that. Already planning the one after that.

I love the blanket that has the white stripe in between. Is that the pattern you get when you purchase the Hydranger Wool Pack?

Hola, acabo de comenzar su alfombra de hortensias porque estoy tratando de entender y seguir patrones, sus instrucciones y fotos son muy útiles, gracias. Hice mis dos primeras filas con un gancho 4.5 y continué con un gancho 4. Solo estoy en la fila 2, pero el trabajo es muy rizado: ¿es de esperar o he hecho algo mal?
Espero que puedas aconsejar

Margaret

Will this amount of yarn make 2 baby blankets?

HI Lucy,
I have just purchased the pack for the Hydrangea Blanket because I love it when I saw it on the Woolwarehouse. I have done my 182 chains using a 5.5mm hook but still can only get my chain to measure 100cm. Could you advise me? More chains to get up to 120cm? I am relatively new to crochet and not sure how to correct this.

Thank you

Janet

Linda

Some of the best instructional pics I've seen. Thanks for sharing!

Sue

How do I order the Hydranger wool pack

Linda Teeter

I believe that in the U.S., dc and tr stitches are different. Is that correct? If so, is a dc a U.S. single crochet and is a tr a U.S. dc?

How can I buy 2 extra balls 1 of Parma Violet and 1 of Pale Rose?

Leslie Rawls

I just saw a Facebook post where someone made this blanket using the "dune colourway" scheme. I was about to give up blankets for a while, but what's one more? Is there a dune colourway yarn packet for this pattern? (I'd like to make a large size, so I really want two, I guess.) Fingers crossed!

Marie Shaw

I learnt to crochet ( granny squares) in September... bought the Hydrangea pack and on row 4 now but loving it and I'd be lost without your great tutorial ( and support on FB). Colours and pattern are just lovely x

Leah

Hi Lucy, your blog was the very first I ever visited when I fell in love with crochet all over again as an adult. It has always been a source of inspiration and it makes me so happy to see the fabulous new directions Attic24 has taken over the years. I’ve just ordered a Hydrangea pack and can’t wait for it to wing its way to New Zealand. I’m sure your gorgeous Sweet Pea pack will be my next purchase.

Hi I have just started your hydrangea rug as im trying hard to understand and follow patterns - your instructions and photos are very helpful - thank you. I made my first two rows with a 4.5 hook and continued with a 4 hook. I am only on row 4 but the work is very curly - is this to be expected or have i done something wrong?
Hope you can advise

Sue jones

Can you explain what "rainbowing" is?
I have just started the hydranga stripe blanket and it does not look like yours very lumpy.
Should I use a larger hook?
I love your patterns and have just finished the cupcake stripe blanket really pleased with it.

Sarah van Niftrik

I love the pattern! Anyone know what chain number I should use for a Queen Size bed? And would I have to buy two packs of wool for this size?

Pam West

Love the colours you have chosen for these blankets. I’m trying to plan some for mine
