I loved her Cal ( Crochet along) block per week you can find information about it HERE
I have given it a go and made a few blocks but never went through all the blocks.
It’s beautiful but not for beginners – it won’t be boring as each block is different I love it!
If you want to do something challenging and relatively quick then this is for you!

Lucy’s page is my ultimate favourite in crochet resources.
She has some marvelous blanket patterns.
Lucy uses a lot of Stylecraft yarn which you can find using my resources list above and also find out last prices by clicking the link to Stylecraft. I have used it too and have lots of lovely colours it isn’t my favourite though as I prefer wool or cotton as they are nicer to work with. But if you want to make something for kids or just something that is going to get lots of use and needing to be laundered more then Stylecraft is the way to go.
Her ripple blankets and granny stitch are easy to do once you master the stitch and you can make up a blanket pretty rapidly!

I love this simple colourful blanket.
How was that?
Feeling inspired to start one of these projects? Want something smaller how about my other crochet patterns.
I have made one it was a king size blanket which took me 2 years to complete!
Believe it or not but I did finish it though.
I also made a little blanket for my friend’s little boy this only took a couple of months so if you want to start making a blanket something like a lap blanket or something for a child before you start on something big as you can get discouraged very quickly if you are just starting out.
