Andrea Nicholas

Good Morning

Hope you are well. My friend purchased the rainbow cusion for my birthday. I am trying to download the pattern with no luck. Do you have a link to the Pdf please?

Thank you

Abida Rafiq

Can you please tell me how much yarn ball use in one cushion.


I can't wait to try this Raindrop Stitch! It looks awesome! Thank you for sharing this awesome pattern!

I've made a blanket & a matching cushion in the Raindrops Stitch in DK - the blanket did have the 'RH slant' that everyone else has bother with, but I altered it slightly for the cushion & it turned out better. After two or three attempts at making a straight blanket, I gave up & have learned to live with the wonkiness. No-one else has noticed yet as it's always wrapped around me and/or my legs. I'm now busy with the Hydrangea stitch blanket in your original pack colours but with several of my own added to make a bit more 'rainbowiness'. Your blogs cheer me up no end when I can't get out because of my arthritis.Thank you


Is there an answer to the common wonk issue?


Is there an answer to the common wonk problem? I keep undoing and redoing and comparing to Lucy’s photos and they look the same except for the wonky raindrops. Help please! Thank you


I can't wait to see a blanket made from this. Make sure you sell a yarn pack. I love this stitch!


Hi Lucy, my mum and I have also bought the packs from ww and we can't stop the slanting either (despite following comments on this thread) perhaps you need to address this your pattern as many of us have had the same issue. It's a shame as many of us will have bought the packs in good faith that the pattern is totally fine - andvsone of us just can't work out how to fix it. Thanks in advance.


Hi Lucy
I love love love the Attic, and I have the exact same questions as posted here but I don't see any responses. Seems if you're getting the same question it would be awesome if we could see the answers so you're not getting the same question over and over. Do you answer questions? I sure hope you do cause I adore your website and can't wait to order more yarn for my next project!!

I found in order to get the number of stiches right I needed to put the first half treble in the next stitch to the chain 2, not the same stitch. The result of this is I need to stitch into the chain at the end of the row. However, by moving along one stitch I appear to have solved the problem of the slant - my crochet is perfectly straight and my raindrops lined up. Perhaps the answer is to move one stitch along?


I'm having problems subscribing to feed - I also need to stop my crochet going off 'on the wonk'.
Please help - I'm loving the pattern & want to get cracking.

Hi Lucy, I love your Rainbow Stitch cushion so much I bought myself your Attic24 Special Chunky Rainbow Pack (8 balls, 8 buttons & cushion pad) before Christmas to make myself one. I also bought Attic24 Moorland Crochet Along Stylecraft Special DK (15 Shades) to join in your CAL tomorrow. I hoped I'd have completed the cushion by now! What am I doing wrong? I think I've pulled it out more times than there is rows of the finished item!! I've followed your detailed instructions but my last 2 stitches of a row end up as 2 chain stitches so I've made adjustments and reduced my foundation chain by 2. This has worked but I can't get my rainbow stitch to line up. Please help!! I want to start the the blanket tomorrow!! Thanks

Hi Lucy, I have made several attempts at making this cushion using the yarn pack (i have managed the bag already), but I can't get the sides to be straight. After several rows I end up with a trapezium rather than a rectangle. What am I likely to be doing wrong? thanks!

Clare Roberts

Hi Lucy. I received the chunky rainbow stitch yarn pack as a christmas present Just wondering what starting chain should be used to work with the cushion insert that was included? Many Thanks in advance. x


Hi there, I am trying to perfect the raindrop stitch as I'm planning on making a cushion of my own (my first!), and am also having trouble lining the raindrops up. They seem to be slightly offset to the right each row. Do you know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance, hope you can help as it's such a pretty stitch xx Lyn.


Hi Lucy,
Greetings from Australia. I am new to crochet and my teacher suggested I take a look at your blog couple of years ago and I frequently drop in to see what you have been up to. I feel so uplifted and inspired when I see what your latest projects are. You are a very talented lady. I am trying to perfect your raindrops stitch, but I can't line up the raindrops. Do you know why this happens? Is it my technique??? Would love to hear your solution, if you have one. Kind regards, Debra

Carol Mickleburgh

Love the raindrops cushion and the bag. I have the pack for cushion bought at Yarndale. Please do you have a printed version of the pattern as it would be so much easier to follow. Have completed 2 of your blankets which my grown up grandaughters love. I understand that there is enough yarn in the cushion pack to make the bag. Again do you have a printed version of this please.


Loving your tutorials as a newbie to crochet. I'm having a bit of difficulty with the raindrops stitch as its coming out wonky and I can't work out why, so I'm wondering if you can help. I'm more than happy to send you a photo.

Emily Green

Hi - lovely patterns and use of color. But... add me to the gang who's crocheting on the bias and can't figure out what's wrong.

Sounded like you had the same problem but didn't explain what you corrected to fix it. Could you weigh in with an explanation of what sends it off at an angle?


I'm new at crocheting but your patterns are usually so well written and with so many pictures that I easily understand them. Thanks so much for it!

Laure Anderson

I just started using your Raindrops pattern to make a blanket. I saw several comments saying that they were having trouble lining up the long half trebled. I am also having that problem. Is it because the row of chains and skipped stitches is too loose?

Looking forward to seeing your reply.

Thanks, Laure


I have bought a few of your kits the latest one being the rainbow cushion.perfect for cold weather to cosy up and crochet style craft is soooo soft thank you for your inspiration

Maria Luisa Luque

Oh dear I realy realy love this blog, it has inpired me a lot. I have no mony to donate beacuse I realy can´t sell any of my stuff to buy new material or donate anything. A simple comment that I realy LOVE your work it´s nothing. But I just wanted you to kow it


This is such a beautiful design! Thanks as always, Lucy. I've messed around with it a bit and made it using trebles instead of half-trebles, I always seem to split my yarn and get into a muddle with htrs! It still has the lovely texture but is a bit looser, so I reckon will make a fab blanket. Will let you know!
