I’m having trouble with the changing color bit. I can’t remember from previous attempts at crocheting, and the picture and directions aren’t clear...how do I get the Claret loop off the hook to pull up the lipstick for the first color change? Do I just pull the loop through and cut it?

How do I contact Wool Warehouse?


Does the kingsize chain not include the extra 3 chains? Should it actually be 339? Thanks



Hi Lucy. Just ordered dahlia yarn pack and can’t wait to work with it. I’m planing to crochet a blanket for my granddaughter. Want to make it with the granny squares, not sure how big the blanket will be and how much yarn I have to leave for an edging. Can you help me with it please. Much love

Hi Ladies. I've found the colour lists under the Archive tab at the top of the site. The Weekly blogs are listed with printable lists of colourway included half way through the blogs. Sally x

Mary E Larsen

Can’t find colour sequence for Dahlia Stripe blanket. Is there one, please ?

Deb Williams

Hi, I will be purchasing this kit as soon as it comes back in stock and I was just wondering if you have a downloadable full list of the colour order for the colourwash blanket and also the pattern for the edging please. Thank you x

My daughter told me about your site recently. I love your work, your colour combinations are gorgeous. I have been crocheting your dahlia blanket for a few weeks now but I am having trouble finding the pattern for the border and also the colours for the stripes from part 4 of the mixed stripe blanket. I am also unable to subscribe to the comment feed, as someone else mentioned I just get a page of computer data.


I love the colors! Inquiring minds want to know - what are the colors beyond row 15?

I see the King size is 84 inches long. What is the width? Thank you.

I was invited to join by a lovely friend whose crochet work is amazing! I have never done a CAL before and when I saw the colours of the Dahlia pack I was blown away! I haven’t crocheted for several years but it soon came flooding back when I did the tension piece. Thank you so, so much for the really clear instructions with all the great pictures - they helped me loads. I struggled a bit with the ends but just worked the pattern a few more times on the tension piece and feel more able to actually start the blanket proper. I loved the Dahlia pack so much when it arrived that I sneakily went and bought the Dune set too! Luckily, hubbie was so impressed with my little tension piece saying how lovely it looked he is looking forward to the Dune set too! My poor knitting projects have been unceremoniously stuffed in the corner! Thank you everso much for brightening such a dull and miserable January! Looking forward to the next post!

I absolutely LOVE these colors! This yarn pack was my second to the last purchase in 2019. I kept eyeing it whenever I was browsing woolwarehouse.com and I just couldn't pass it up. It's rare that I find such colors that scream at me like these do.

Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of project for a co-worker and can't start this yet. Your tutorial about weaving ends begs the question if there will be a border for this blanket. Is there a plan for one? Your borders are easy but elegant and I've used them on many other projects when I'm stuck for one.


Hi Lucy, can’t wait to get started, the blanket looks gorgeous.Thank you xx


Thank you, Lucy for such detailed photos. This is my first attempt at a CAL and I appreciate all the help you give.
Now to get started 😧
