Great content.


Thanks for the sharing- much appreciated


I just found this (and YOU) and I'm so very glad I did....this is gorgeous. You do phenomenal work

Liz Wheelhouse

Hi Lucy,
After many years struggling to crochet I seem to have finally cracked it. But I have one major problem. I'm left handed and so everything I crochet is the other way round.
I follow your patterns because they are explained so brilliantly and I can understand your photos too.
However, I'm desperate to make your sunny log cabin blanket and I've realised that if I do it left handed I will be constantly working in the wrong direction! I would somehow have to compose each of the 16 squares backwards! It's hard to explain, but do you see what I mean?
Can you give any ideas/pointers/advice?


Love the look of the log cabin pattern

Jean Blythe

Such a lovely blanket! This type of log cabin square is also called 'Courthouse Steps', as the increases on opposite sides look like stair steps. Of course, I'm putting this pattern on my ever-growing crochet to-do list! Thank you for another lovely pattern.


I have started my blanker sunny log . is there only two squares of the various colour or is every square different I only see the two on your site. oblige Margaret


Dear Lucy,
you are an inspiration, if only day would have more than 24 houres... I really would like to do this blanket to, it is so lovely and you explanation is so clear. I wish you a lot of lovely projects to share with us.
I am aloso a mother of the children and my hoby an my relax is crochet.
Have a nice day!

Infinally ordered my yarn for this beauty today (plus some extras, of course :). I was a little worried that this may be too much for me to handle right now, but Queen Lucy's instructions are so simple that I believe I can follow :)
Thank you again Lucy for sharing your many precious gifts with us all. When I grow up I want to be just like you :) xxx

What size is a 4mm hook in US hook size?

Hi Lucy I adore this blanket and I am planning to make it in my own colourway. I won't be starting it for a bit yet but I am enjoying choosing the colours.As I want it to be heirloom quality I plan to make it in natural fibre (either cotton or wool -cascade have brilliant colours)Do you think I need the whole range of 16 colours plus the centre to get the full effect? Thanks

Iris van Meer


Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern :)
Would it be okay with you if I write a Dutch translation for this pattern on my blog? Crocheting is becoming quite popular in my country, but many people have trouble reading English patterns and I really like helping them out. Please let me know. I will ofcourse reference to your blog (many times) and also to your yarn shop. I won't be making any money of of your wonderful project, just want to share the colorful love :)

Kind regards,

Iris van Meer

Dear Lucy, I have just finished making this sunny log cabin blanket and love it! I have never made a crocheted blanket before and am now definitely addicted! I have just ordered the wool for the harmony blanket, like the sunny log cabin, the colours look great together!
Thank you for the design and colour combinations!

Catherine Schafer

Hi Lucy.
I found your blog lately & I'm addicted.
I just LOVE your wonderful patterns. Am totally inspired. I came across your log cabin pattern in the New Year & couldn't wait to start.
I'm just back from a little break in Lanzarote & was the only one with 16 balls of wool on the lie low at the pool. All squares are now finished so must start the sewing together.
Thanks again for the inspiration.

Anne-Claude Wyss

Thank you so much Lucy for this wonderful CAL! I have had so much fun to follow you, looking for each sunday to discover four new squares. My blanket is finished now and I can say, as you do, that it's a tadahhhhh moment!
I don't have the habit to crochet or knit such colours. I have loved it!

Hi Lucy,
I too was one of those people who didn't immediately fall in love with the Sunny Log Cabin Blanket (as I have with ALL of your others!) but when I saw it finished, I was WOWED! It looks amazing! The creativity and thought you have put into this design is impressive and inspiring. This is proper heirloom material! I'm going to make it for a new family member, due to come into the world on 9th February. Thank you so much for sharing so much with us.

Hi Lucy - I was one of the people who did not like this blanket when I first saw the squares. Having seen the ta-dah, I love it and I am going to order the wool today.


Love the colours, ordered the pack and was delighted when it took only two weeks to get to Australia, even with Christmas and New Years holidays


Lucy I loved both your sunny stripe and log pattern so purchased 2 packs from wool warehouse as noticed I had some leftover, I have started a single bed sized throw using moogly,s pattern of the blackberry striped blanket involving the popcorn stitch which is the first time I have used this and it's brilliant in your lovely sunny colours and throughly recommend you try this. Next on my list is your harmony blanket until you make your next one, I am addicted to your patterns please continue x

Joanne Garratt

Hi Lucy,
I have done most of your crochet blankets. Received the wool from your shop to do the log cabin blanket looking forward to starting it. Just wondering if you have time. I noticed you had the bb blanket and then I went to have a look and it wasn't there the next day would it be possible ho get the pattern off you as I like crocheting different blankets
Thanks Joanne

Adeva Hopkins

This might be a really stupid question but I've darned in my ends but do you have to knot it to anything.....

I kinda never do ends, or finish anything. ha.
First time for everything.

Dorothy Bradbury

My granny square was spot on with measurements but after doing the 4 side colours my square now measures 16.5cm, will this use too much yarn? Should I carry on or undo it and start again? Should I change hooks to a smaller size? Help needed please

So so beautiful! This blanket is really lovely Lucy! Log cabin was the first quilt i made when I was jung, so this pattern is one of my favorite :) thank you for such a lovely tut!!
