Hello, I would like to make a blanket for watching tv. The single bed size I think is too wide. I am using a dk colouring changing cake 150g and have 4 cakes. How many chains do you suggest I do? Thank you 😊


Hi Lucy,
Love your work! I want to make a small blanket for my granddaughter who lives in Hawaii. I’m trying to decide if the Neat Ripple or Woodland pattern would look like waves. Do you have a suggestion which one or any other one you would think would might look best?
Thanks for any help you can give.

Teresa Jones

Do you recommend an edging or do you think best left as is? I’ve just done a two colour 3row per colour baby blanket.

How come everytime I try to do a ripple pattern when I get to the 4th or 5th row is stop lining up the right way?? I've tried using DC and TRC.Idk what I'm doing wrong but I've tried this pattern any similar patterns like like with the same rounded ripple and it never lines up. Plzzzzzz someone HELP!!!! 🤞🤞

Nichola Dransfield

I always struggled with this stitch but I have now cracked it thanks to you. X


Dear Lucy,

Thank for all the guidance on the ripple #2 blanket.
Do you have the pattern for the colour changes which are really stunning and I am not sure whether I can figure the order out myself.
Thank you in advance

Obviously I cannot do this pattern. I have counted 1 - 14 and 1- 14 etc all through the foundation row and added 3 chains at the end. Still I come up short or I have too many chains. This pattern came highly recommended. I am sure it works great for some, but I guess I was stupid for believing I could. I did the gauge and it was just fine.


Olá amo suas fotos, são lindas e seu texto muito acolhedor.
Espero que voce esteja bem, um forte abraço


ok. I think I got this right. I want to do a bigger blanket other than the 31. The pattern (in the u.s.) is the 2 dc in next chain and another in next chain, dc next 4, dc2tog 2x, dc next 4. Is that the pattern you rep across the foundation chain? At the end with 1 chain left you 2 dc. I get the first part. But once past that do I have the repeated part correct?


Thank you for the illustrations I will enjoy doing this pattern

Hello Lucy,
The pattern instructions for the neat ripple pattern above go through row 4. Am I suppose to now go through row 1 through 4 and keep repeating or am I suppose to pick row 2 and crochet each row for the rest of the baby blanket?
Thank you.
Monica Woolf

Hi. I’d like to make your neat ripple blanket for a king size bed
How many packs would I need? How do I order them ?
How do I pay?!

Mary Ellen Manning

Please advise me how to do the final edging on the blanket, one side is done, CANNOT remember how I DID IT,
Want to go back to crochet, many thanks in advance.


Just to clarify...you work the first row into both loops of the chain stitches, after that do you work in back loops only with the exception of first and last stitch of each row (working those into both loops?) I'm a bit unclear about this. Thank you so much for this pattern and tutorial!

Hi Shelby, :)
Actually, her directions are correct because Lucy’s in the UK and She is using UK Crochet terms.
What we call a double crochet in the US is called a treble crochet in the UK. Their terms are just offset from ours so It’s an easy conversion: a single crochet in the
US is a double crochet in the Uk etc.
Generally, crochet patterns and crocheters will mention if they are using UK terms or US terms.
Lucy does mention the conversion in the beginning of her instructions.👇
“Once you are sure you've got the right number of chains to begin (count carefully as you make them!), make a treble crochet stitch (this is UK treble / US dc) in the 4th chain from the hook”

Shelby Pugh

I think this is PERFECT for beginners! Thank you for taking the time to be so detailed in each step.

However, the main stitch you are describing as a Treble Crochet is actually a Double Crochet. The steps for a Treble Crochet are...

1) Yarn over, twice
2) Insert hook in next stitch
3) Yarn over
4) Pull yarn through stitch to draw up a loop (4 loops on hook)
5) Yarn over
6) Pull through first 2 loops on hook
7) (3 loops on hook)
8) Yarn over
9) Pull Through first 2 loops on hook
10) (2 loops on hook)
11) Yarn over
12) Pull through remaining 2 loops on hook

I believe this pattern will work if followed by your step by step instructions but if an actual Treble Crochet is used, I'm not too sure.
