Hi Lucy I am just finishing Moorland and although I have the wool and have done my tension square for Sweet pea will have to finish Moorland before I start and cannot wait. Is there a colour list to use for this one as I find them very useful


Could variegated colour wool be used?

Jo Watts

Hi Lucy
Thank you for your wonderful work!
I have a query though - I completed a tension sample at the measurement was right, however having just completed part one of the CAL I re-measured and my blanket is very small - its only measuring about 98cm and is only 24cm tall - I have checked the stitch count and the pattern repeat and it's the right amount - does this mean i should have gone up a hook size? (I find the up down thing confusing - dyslexic brain)
Also it's looking so neat and pretty that I don't want to start again, would putting a larger border on at the end help? And will I need to add in some extra stripes.
Many thanks for all the wonderful work you do :-)

Blanket # 3! Just finished Moorland blanket a month ago, finally able to crochet along. Row #3 just completed in Portland, Oregon.

Hi, I’m new to a CAL. Do we crochet the first four rows this week and get the colour pattern in instalments? I’ve seen posts on IG saying folk are on row 12 and I’m confused!

Diane Kelsey

Finnybobbies, I think you need approximately 300g of wool to make the baby blanket. I have just started it and used 8g per stripe. I'm think of making 33 stripes so that the blanket is 1m long.

Christine Burgess

Please,please is there a way to copy this so that I can print it.? I really love this CAL and am making a king sized blanket. Thank you so much for creating it!

I have 2 chains left in row 3... do I need to rip? 😖😖😖


Well I'm in love already! Have arrived a bit late and only just ordered my pack. Am totally undecided if I should do posy or colourwash. Have done tension piece with my stash. Just wondering how much yarn would be needed for the baby blanket size as contemplating making a different colourway for a baby due in spring and want to know how much yarn to get. Any ideas anyone?


So the whole blanket is with one stich ? A have a lot off yarn in my secret stash. Mostly the same colours of your list, butt Some yarn have a other colour .... is that a problem ?
I’am verry enjoying this sweetpea blanket

Finally got a chance to read everything and get started with the CAL. Completed my swatch and made a record of the yarn colors. Now I'm getting ready to crochet. This pattern is just beautiful and I can't wait to see if my blanket will be anywhere as beautiful as yours. Thank you for creating the CAL.


I just finished the tension sample; it came out perfect. I used a 400 mm Grove hook to obtain the 15 cm size sample. I am going to start my Posy Sweet Pea blanket tonight before I go to bed! Thank you for the wonderful pattern that will give me many hours of joy and relaxing fun!

Already ran short on my meadow color 😭 I swatched and everything ... ughh what am I going to do


Loving this pattern! So excited to be making my 3rd crochet blanket with you!

Kristi Calcagno

I usually crochet tight so I was surprised that my tension sample came out at 17 cm using a size 4.5 hook (foundation row made with a size 5 hook). Do you recommend me going down to a size 4? I’m wondering if once I get used to the yarn and the pattern, if my stitches will tighten up. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

BTW, I love everything about this and I’m enjoying it so much already! Thank you so much Lucy!!!


Carol Chamberlain, you are reading the tutorial of the trellis stripe pattern. You need to go back to the CAL part 1 on the main blog homepage for the colours list. Hope that helps. Claire x

Vacuuming, dusting, floor mopping, - postponed. I am starting my long-awaited Sweet Pea blanket right now!!!!


Hi Lucy. This is my first CAL & I'm loving the colours! I have chosen the Posy colourway :) I have just finished the DC row and I think I've made my foundation chain too long :( I'm just counting them up now to make sure! Is there a way of unpicking the extra chain stitches rather than frogging the whole row to start again? Thank you! :)

Mónica Patricia

Hola Lucy muchas gracias por tan bello trabajo que has compartido .Estoy aprendiendo crochet con tus tutoriales,Tejí summer garden en una funda para tablet y el borde spot on ending para la terminación, me has acompañado sin que lo sepas en días difíciles así que te reitero GRACIAS por Attic 24!!!!!. Un cariño desde Buenos Aires.

Carol Chamberlain

I have done the first three colours of the posy colourway but I can’t find the list of the next colours, I just keep getting the same page but no list of colours which I know I have seen, where has it gone😩😩😩


Thank you for this great tutorial Lucy x its looks so lovely in the Sweet Pea colours. I just love how simple this pattern is yet looks so detailed once a few rows are joined together. You have made many many people very happy bunnies today xxx

Wendy Silvester

Afternoon Lucy,
I’m a beginner at crochet, and this is my first CAL. I did my foundation row in 4mm, and started the pattern with a 3.5mm hook.
My row 3 turned out brilliant, perfect.
My question is the length. It’s turning out at 145cm, where it should be 120cm.
Do I start again, or keep going, and watch my yarn 🧶 invade I need more.
Thank you


Thank you Lucy, you taught me to crochet 5 years ago and you are continuing to teach me new things. Thank you
