Hi Lucy,
Could you let me know which colours you used for these as they are gorgeous.

How do you connect the squares to complete the blanket?


Thank you so much. You have inspired a complete beginner to start crocheting. I've tried many times and have been frustrated that I can't seem to be able to do it, but realising I can crochet left-handed together with your brilliant instructions have meant I have now completed my first ever crochet project, the Cosy Stripe blanket. I'm thrilled with it. I'm now starting some Summer garden Granny squares. I love the Summer garden granny square blanket you made, and I'm wondering if there is a pattern anywhere for it? I can't seem to find it. Keep up the fantastic work. I live in Skipton, and I'm loving your blog too and everything you do.


I recently made your beautiful Harmony blanket, thanks to your clear directions and photos! Now my daughter would love for me to make one for her using this Summer Garden square. As a newcomer to crochet, I am not sure how to join these squares into a blanket. Would you recommend I make round 5 from your Harmony pattern and then join from that pattern?…Or do you have a different method for this square that you could share?

Thank you for any advice you can offer to help a newbie!
Many thanks, Kate

Dear Lucy,

I have been sent a 'photo of a blanket and would really like to make it. Can you help me please?


Brilliant clear instructions
Thank you.


I am very new to crochet and I can't really get the first bobble thingy :(
Do I do all the 7 bobbles into the center or into the chain? Pls help lol


Many thanks for this inspirational summer garden pattern. I recently learnt to crochet during lockdown and have completed my blanket. I may add a couple of butterfly buttons.
Your tutorials are so helpful

I love these circles/squares Lucy. Are these the ones that might become a bag?
Love Jo.


One of your recent commenters seems not to realise you are working with UK crochet terms (UK tr = US double).

Pretty square.


The tc instructions are wrong that is a double crochet !


The to instructions for this pattern are wrong that is a double crochet.!

Hello Lucy !

I have found your free pattern and I'm using it to make a blanket for my daughter who lives in England.
I have choosen three shades of blue-green for the round and white wool for the middle.
Your explanations are very easy to understand. Thank you very much !

Lucy, is there a way I could get this pattern with the color combination for the squares? I ordered the yarn tha was listed from Arric 24. Please contact me as to what I can do. Thanks!

Hi Lucy--what beautiful squares! I'd love to recreate the jewel tone blanket that is done in squares of 4 blocks each. Alas, I struggle with color combos. Do you have directions along with colors for this blanket? It's one of the most beautiful I've very seen. Thanks so much!


Hi Lucy, just wondered roughly how much wool you would need for a 48 x 60 inch blanket?

My name is Monica and I live in Waldorf, Maryland, USA. I am currently making your hexagon afghan for a wedding gift. I got an email today from Pinterest about afghans, clicked on one I really liked, and I should have guessed...it was one of yours!!! You and I must have kindred souls because we seem to like the same thing...Bright colors!! Unfortunately, I do not have your ability to design!!

Thank you putting some brightness in my life!

how could I put the pieces together? please let me know and I hope there would be the video tutorial and it would be very much helpful. Thank you.


Hi Lucy.
just watched your tutorial on this granny square. i must say that it thought me a lesson on where to start and join colours.
I am doing an 8" square for a double bed size throw and have over 60 squares ready. note that I sl stitch to join and I turned my work to access my next 3 trebles on my project. By doing only one set of trebles on the first corner has made such a difference, and i can run my loose ends into the bottom of these clusters which i try to do after a couple of my squares are complete. Thanks so much a late beginner. O A P age 72.


Hi. Could you please tell me what yarn have you used here and the hook size. I have been looking for cotton yarn but haven't found any. Many thanks x

Hi could you plz do a section on how to add a new colour properly as I knot mine and I know this is not right but a step by step guide by you would be great !!!
