I love this pattern I have been looking for shell pattern and I have tried some. But yours is the best I am enjoying making the sea shell stripe. I am only using three colors.

Where is the PDF download for the dune blanket? looking everywhere.


I finally completed my final shell row with the color I started with so the edges match. However, my final row starts and ends with a full shell. Your instructions show how to add the straight edge to a row with half shells at the edges. Is there a way to add a straight edge to a row that starts with a full shell?

Thank you.

Hi there, I tried to order the Dune yarn pack but its out of stock, its being sold on ebay but without the pattern. Would it be possible to send me the pattern please?

Thank you.


Thank you very much, I love your pattern and you describe and demonstrate with great pictures and very detailed, thank you again. I love to Crochet and I haven’t seen any pattern as detailed as yours.

I have been crocheting for years but, have always done things that were very easy to do, like scarves and such.

I am a lefty for crocheting and a righty for knitting.

It is hard for me to figure out all the stitches correctly.

I'm going to keep on trying.

Is it possible make this colour way with your other patterns for other blankets will there be enough yarn

Jenny Wilson

Hi - I'd like to crochet this (I'm a newbie). I would like to support my local yarn shop by buying the supplies from them - but I'd also like to support you by buying your pattern rather than copying it off the website. Do you have the 10 page patterns available without the yarn packs? Jenny

Hi there Lucy
Loving the shell pattern, very relaxing rhythm. I have had great joy learning and making Cosy Stripe, Hydrangea and Granny Stripe . I have learnt so much with the step by step photo tutorials, great for me as a visual learner, even better I am linking these with the patterns and improving my pattern reading ability too, it's a win win for me. Thank you so much, it’s great being able to buy you a coffee when I use a new pattern and tutorial, enjoying your blog too
All the best to you and yours


Can anyone clarify for me how to weave in my ends on this pattern? I did not understand the info in the instructions. I don't know what the post is or where to find it. Should I just weave it in anywhere in the color I'm using? Thank you.

I’ve now made two of these lovely blankets but I’m really not sure what I’m doing wrong when I straighten the top edge.
In the baby blanket I made the starting chain is 102 chains. When I straighten the top edge it’s 25 shells x 5 stitches per shell making 125 stitches. Many more than the opposite edge.
Please, what am I doing wrong?

I have been trying to find the pattern for the little shells that illustrate the colours... is it in the blog some where and I'm just blind or can I be directed to it please....
Thank you

When you say ‘fasten off’- what exactly do you mean- pull the thread through. If you could just explain this .

I really enjoy all your work and your pictures and instructions are so so helpful to make a beautiful blanket

Grandma Sue

Lucy, You have made so many beautiful blankets now, have you considered writing/making a book of all your blanket designs? I, for one, would have it on pre-order like a shot!

beth staite

Hi I ordered the dune blanket pack and i was told there would be the pattern inside, there isn't. Do you have a PDF version that you can send??
