Hi, I’ve started the wave cushion and it’s looking good. Only thing is, I’m not sure which is supposed to be the right side - one looks more textured than the other (which I like as it looks like overlapping waves) - is that the right side? Thank you.


Love the neat waves pattern! I'm not doing the moorland colour combo, just making it up as I go along, with regular stripes of grey and navy for continuity, but it's turning out okay and the wavy pattern is sooooo relaxing! Thank you xx

Is there a written pattern available? I traveling where I have unreliable internet and would like to work on this while I’m away?
Thank You!


Looking forward to making this, starting next week. We walk a lot on the Pennines and Peak District moors, so the colours are really meaningful to me


Can anyone help me? I don’t know what I am doing wrong but I can’t get my lines to work at all. I’m following the pattern as closely as I can but my waves are all lined up (all the wide parts are in a row and all the narrow parts are in a row) So everything is looking like a ripple rather than a wave! I’m at my wits end trying to sort it


Hi Lucy..Just had to write and Thank You so much for sharing your blanket brilliance..have just begun my Mooreland Blanket journey...wow! Making for my dear sister...can understand why no printed pattern came with the lovely yarn...your tutorials and expert guidance can only be gleened and appreciated via Attic24...following your instructions exactly from a color coded yarn card..brilliant...to making a swatch or two to watching my stitch count etc...your guidance is invaluable....have made my own written instructions matching stripe colors with row sequence...its all good and success and joy is mine because of you...your hours spent designing are made manifest in me making something so beautiful...so I thank you. Love & Hugs, Judy...from my farmhouse in Northern California.. oxoxoxxo

Hi Lucy. Could you please send me a printed pattern for
your moorland blanket. I have great difficulty having to find it on my lap top. I have purchased the pack

Anne Gray

Hi I purchased a moorland pack at the yarndale festival
is there any chance of receiving a paper pattern.

I have the internet but no printer I prefer to have a paper pattern so I can refer to it.


I am using the Woodland pattern for my temperature blanket. I enjoyed it so much when I did the Woodland blanket. And I am using the Coastal pattern with the Cosy yarn pack.
Your patterns are so much fun. And your yarn packs are lovely.
Thank you

is there a random colour pattern for the Moorland similar to that for the Woodland?


I have the wool to crochet the moorland blanket is their enough wool to crochet the moorland colours to make the cupcake pattern instead


I'm sure that Ive seen a photo you've posted of this pattern, but worked in coastal colours, looking very much like a beach turning into breaking gentle waves and then the sea.....
I simply can't remember where I saw it.
Does this ring a bell, and if so could you point me in the right direction please?


I was excited to take delivery of the moorland wool pack yesterday. I would like to incorporate two other colours that remind me of the moors-a cream for the sheep and a grey for the stone walling.Any suggestions were these would fit best?

I have the wool and the crochet hook poised but i can not locate the pattern for the blanket with the list of colour to be used.

Wool Pack due to arrive tomorrow - am working a blanket for Grand-daughter ready for Uni.

What is the recommended chain for a single blanket for the Granny Stripe blanket?? Help needed, have not crochet for ages having turned my hand to Bobbin lace.


Hello Lucy, Your link to part 2 opens part 3 of the CAL. I'm trying to see the colour patterning for part 2. Can you email them to me? I'm very excited to try making this blanket for one of my daughters for Christmas.
Thanks so much!

Has anyone received an answer regarding a written pattern?


hi, just about to begin this project (late to the party as always) but is there a printable written pattern for it (i've tried copying and pasting the text on here but it won't). i really don't want to be tied to the computer. tia.

Hia Lucy, I love your Moorland Blanket and I am hoping to be able to make it. I am currently working the sample, in order to check what size hook to use. Could you please let me know if it is possible to print your instructions, as I am finding it a little awkward to keep scrolling through them on my mobile phone. Thanks! Carol

Monique Garcia

Bonjour! je vous connais depuis des années, je visite régulièrement votre blog qui me réconforte et m'apporte beaucoup de plaisir. Je viens de découvrir ce CAL avec un peu de retard, mais j'ai voulu vous rejoindre. Ma laine est commandée, je serai en retard sur vous, mais peu importe! Je me réjouis à l'avance ! Merci et félicitations pour ce que vous faites. Vous m'apportez beaucoup de soleil!

Eagerly awaiting part 4 today. I went for a 4.5 mm hook after my test square but now we're half way there I can see it's worked up shorter than it should, so I worked in 5 extra stripes during part 3. I took ages to decide where to add and which colours, such a responsibility as I didn't want to spoil Lucy's beautiful landscape. I hope I've done it justice. Without knowing at this stage what I'll need for the border, I bought 2 packs to make a double size so hopefully I'll have enough yarn to cover these extra stripes. Some colours have used up more than others. The blanket's getting heavy now but keeps my lap warm whilst working on it during this cold snap! Such a lovely quality feel to it thanks to Lucy's choice of stitch and yarn.
MIMI - try this link to get straight to the pattern on the internet: attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-wave-pattern.html - that's what comes up in the URL address box.

Hi, I am very experienced at crochet but i am now visually impaired and having to learn crochet "in the dark". I have made a ripple patern before but am now finiding it quite difficult.
My stich count is out every row. I have to use a system of markers. a lerge marker in my beginning and last stitch and smaller markers each repeat.
My question is i used to attach my new colour at the end of the previous row and chain up. I think this is where I am wrong now. Is it ok to start with a standing stitch so that I know for instance that i have 2 dc to start i will definitely be in the right place?
If anyone has tips i would be grateful. I ca mostly do anything but I work by feel and markers. My fingers have got very sensitive to decern which stitch it is and where it is so I am lucky there. I use text to speech and commit each row to memory. Aoart from that any advice would be wonderful. Please excuse any mistakes I can't read the screen I am trying to touch type! lol very out of practice. Kind regards Lorraine

Have come to the conclusion that I must've just made an error and moved one stitch over on a couple of stir o especially cos everything is lining up now and I'm feeling much happier with my work 😀

Sarah Simons-Boswell

Hi, I am a relatively new crocheter having previously only managed granny squares. I have made a shawl which Went really well, but I am struggling to keep the stitches lined up on my blanket and am finding that every few rows I need to work a stitch into the loop at the base of the chain at the row beginning g to keep the pattern lined up. Is there something obvious that I am doing wrong? I am on my 11th stripe and really don't want to unravel it yet again, I love the pattern just wish I could keep it straight x


I am concerned about having enough yarn if I go for 351 chain size. I have 2 packs of the yarn pack. Will I have enough to make larger size?
