I too am having difficulty with the 2nd row-claret. what am I missing?

Danielle Flanagan

Hello -is there a chart for this beautiful pattern please ?

Elsie Hughes

Thank you for the information Lucy. I will give the carpet blocking a try and I’m sure it will work. This is a lovely blanket and I bought 2 so I will be starting another right after .



Mine is too, very disappointed, I’m hoping it will reshape when blocking

Elsie Hughes

I’m on the border now but my blanket is so out of shape . I should have turned my work every other row as I heard this solves the problem . Will stick to stripes in the future .


Is there any chance to get the pattern presented as a chart? Thanks!

Sarah MacLean

Really enjoying this pattern and blanket. Our crochet class meet up on Zoom every wednesday for a bit of show and tell, blanket progress and a natter. Having great fun. Many thanks

Rosie Pither

Love the pattern but why will i have a new ball of kelly green and 1 new ball of claret.


Hi, such beautiful colours but mine twisting. I have the correct count will this straighten out in blocking?

Hi Lucy, I usually don’t post anything, I just read everyone else’s posts, but I just could not resist commenting on the Yuletide blanket. I was so anxious to get started with the blanket that I stayed up until 2 AM to make sure that I got my order in for the yarn pack. (I live in the US.) I just completed my blanket (slow crocheter), and I LOVE it!!! I added a row of bobble stitches in Kelly Green as the last row on the border and I am beyond pleased with it. You are such an awesome designer, and I so appreciate all that you share with us, your faithful followers. I
so enjoy reading your blog that I check daily to see if you have posted anything new. I love your writing style and your wonderful way with words. I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to let you know that I think you are AWESOME!! Thanks so very much for all your inspiration.


When you join a new color, do you weave in the ends, or just crochet over them?

Anita Walters

Love the colours in this blanket, I can't crochet but me and my daughter are making Pom Pom garlands for our Christmas decorations and we have chosen these colours to make them. I can't wait to see how they turn out


Hi Lucy
My Yuletide square is so wonky ??
Tried it twice now ?
Beautiful colours but it’s not working
Thanks mandy


Amanda - the stitch count posted on Oct 12th by Mariken works perfectly


I would be very grateful for the stitch count, has this been posted anywhere?

Robin Paone

Loving this pattern! If I wanted to double the size of the blanket, how much additional yarn would I need to order. Your work is AMAZING!


Many thanks to Mariken, who posted her stitch count on Oct 12th - it works perfectly! I’m now on row 27, and it’s looking lovely

Lindsey Braidley

I’m having trouble with the Claret row2. Do you have it drawn as a diagram? I just can’t get it to work from the words. Have undone it 4 times now.


To ROSIE, who posted a question on October 5th.....if you go past the last big picture of Lucy's blanket, below the following words 'Please note that if you purchase the Yuletide yarn pack from my shop at Wool Warehouse, an eight page printed colour pattern is included.', Lucy has put the instructions without all the pictures, so you can copy and paste into word. I've done this for myself as its easier for me. Hope this helps you!


I love the pattern! It is so nice to crochet this blanket. I looked at my blanket so far and did some math.
Round 6 had 15 stitches in each side.

Next tr row adds 4 stitches.
Next 2-tr row adds 3 stitches
Next Spike row adds 1 stitch.
So each cycle of 3 rows adds 8 stiches.

Row 9 has 23 stiches om each side.
Row 12 has 31 stitches….. etc.

I hope this will help.

Barbara Gorman

I’ve just started my Yuletide blanket and I’m already loving the colours - you are clever Lucy. However I too would like the reassurance of a stitch count or at least a formula to make sure I’m still on track. I’m about to be let loose after following your tutorial and I’m worried about hidden stitches and missing spikes! Thanks


I really want to do this blanket my daughter 8s doing it but its out of stock is there anyway i can download and print this pattern off? I dont mind paying


Please, please could we (I) have a stitch count for the first side of the trebles, as in round 4 (7 tr). I’m obviously going adrift on this row as the 2 -tr row doesn’t work out and i keep ripping it back! I’m only on round 13, so not many stitches, worried as it’s only going to get bigger with more to pull back. THANK YOU XXX

Aileen O'Connor

Lucy, would there be any chance you could give a stitch count for each round similar to what you have for round 4 where you reference 7 trebles. I must keep missing that 1 hidden stitch and I've ripped back a few times and I'm only on round 8!! I'm terrified of it losing shape as it gets larger and I'm too lazy to rip back. This pattern just arrived as I was about to have back surgery and its keeping me occupied while i have to keep rested. 🙃 I really want to finish before i go back to work!!

Jackie Constantine

Hello Lucy. I bought the yuletide blanket from Wool Warehouse and I should be able to have the 8 page pattern but I don't seem to be able to find it. Can you let me know how to download it please.
