HI Lucy,
I have just purchased the pack for the Hydrangea Blanket because I love it when I saw it on the Woolwarehouse. I have done my 182 chains using a 5.5mm hook but still can only get my chain to measure 100cm. Could you advise me? More chains to get up to 120cm? I am relatively new to crochet and not sure how to correct this.

Thank you



Some of the best instructional pics I've seen. Thanks for sharing!


How do I order the Hydranger wool pack

Linda Teeter

I believe that in the U.S., dc and tr stitches are different. Is that correct? If so, is a dc a U.S. single crochet and is a tr a U.S. dc?

How can I buy 2 extra balls 1 of Parma Violet and 1 of Pale Rose?

I just saw a Facebook post where someone made this blanket using the "dune colourway" scheme. I was about to give up blankets for a while, but what's one more? Is there a dune colourway yarn packet for this pattern? (I'd like to make a large size, so I really want two, I guess.) Fingers crossed!

I learnt to crochet ( granny squares) in September... bought the Hydrangea pack and on row 4 now but loving it and I'd be lost without your great tutorial ( and support on FB). Colours and pattern are just lovely x


Hi Lucy, your blog was the very first I ever visited when I fell in love with crochet all over again as an adult. It has always been a source of inspiration and it makes me so happy to see the fabulous new directions Attic24 has taken over the years. I’ve just ordered a Hydrangea pack and can’t wait for it to wing its way to New Zealand. I’m sure your gorgeous Sweet Pea pack will be my next purchase.



Hi I have just started your hydrangea rug as im trying hard to understand and follow patterns - your instructions and photos are very helpful - thank you. I made my first two rows with a 4.5 hook and continued with a 4 hook. I am only on row 4 but the work is very curly - is this to be expected or have i done something wrong?
Hope you can advise

Can you explain what "rainbowing" is?
I have just started the hydranga stripe blanket and it does not look like yours very lumpy.
Should I use a larger hook?
I love your patterns and have just finished the cupcake stripe blanket really pleased with it.

Sarah van Niftrik

I love the pattern! Anyone know what chain number I should use for a Queen Size bed? And would I have to buy two packs of wool for this size?

Pam West

Love the colours you have chosen for these blankets. I’m trying to plan some for mine


Ooooo I'm excited. I finally got the order for the yarn placed this morning. Had an issue with my bank allowing the payment as there are apparently tons of frauds coming from Great Britain. I told them if Lucy says it's a legit company then it is!!! LOL!! So, third time to order but first time to have it go through properly. I can't wait to get it and start on this beauty. I'm being bad and making it for myself :)

Dear Lucy my blanket has 45 shells but is wider than the 120cm of your one my one is 130 cm will this cause a problem with the wool amount. Anne


Hi Lucy, Thanks for your pattern and inspiration. Do you think it would look ok changing the colour every row rather than every 2nd row?


Hi Lucy
Just completed the hydrangea blanket as a present for my daughter. I used a lot of the same colours but some different and I put a pom pom on each corner as my daughter does like a pom pom! It was a joy to crochet. I absolutely loved doing it. I love the texture of the stitch., and it was really simple. I’d like to post a pic if I can. Thanks for the pattern. I think I’ll start the woodland one next.


My blanket is gorgeous and I had enough wool over to crochet a cushion cover made in Granny Squares. It is for my grand-daughter's 16th birthday. Thank you.
I now want to make your cupcake blanket.


Love this pattern. I have seen online people praise his easy your patterns are, ie accurate, very easy to follow & well written. Their comments are spot on. I am relatively new to crochet, this being my first big blanket project, and I know I am going to have an amazing blanket in a few short weeks. Definitely going to try your other blanket patterns in 2018.


Surely if you chain 182 and start in 2nd chain from hook you will have 181 stitches, not 180? There is only one turning chain?


I really enjoy your site and your patterns. I'm making this pattern with a different color palette for my daughter. After completing the row that creates the even edge I have considerably more stitches than my first row, yet everything looks even. Is this normal or have I messed up somewhere along the way


love your work and your tutorials are easy to understand. love the step by step and photos for a novice like me. Will certainly be trying one out soon.

Lesley Thornalley

I love this blanket (as I do many of your others too!) but what's the pattern for the tiny hydrangea flowers please as I'd like to make many of these for a friend who is creating a casket blanket for her passed over clients in Australia and all of her friends are sending over flowers. These would be brilliant to adorn her baby coffins. Xxxxxxxx
