About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Hi Lucy, your work is really beautiful! You have inspired me to make my own ripple blanket, but in starting on the second row, I've noticed my ripples have flattened out! Could you please help me figure out what I've done wrong? I guess I would otherwise have to unravel and start again - nooooo!

Thanks in advance :)


What size hook did you use for ripple blanket in baby cash ? 4mm or 3.75 ?

Crochet Diva

Want to thank you for your crochet ripple tut. Very clear and helpful. (The decreases were foxing me..)

Joy Penaskovic

Hello! Did you use an H hook?!?

I've never crocheted anything in my entire life, but I want to start now. This is the most beautiful blanket I've ever seen. Sigh.


so nice colors everywhere in your house, on the lamp, on the blanket, so I enjoy so much ! next time I will try the waves in crochet just for an draft may be a little bag but I wil be back with more free time . thanks for all pictures and your clever tuto!


Amazing! Must try it soon.hope I get it right.Is it similar to chevron st? Tks and you look cute.


hello! i love your blanket! i am doing one with the pattern of (10) dc's, dc3tog, (10) dc's, 3dc etc. etc. and was wondering how i could edge this?? i want the blanket to be square i'm assuming i would have to build up, maybe start with a st, sc, hdc, dc, htc, tc but that's only 6 stitches and i have 10 rows so i'm confused!!!! any ideas would be very welcomed!!! thanks so much!


Hi Lucy
I'm sorry to say, I really didn't believe you when you said your blanket was "Soothing, rhythmic, creative, exciting, fulfilling, fun" but (now I've got my foundation chain right) you were telling the truth , what a fab pattern you've written ! I know I'll enjoying every hooky moment just like I did with the granny stripe ... I can't thank you enough for getting me crocheting again :)
You're a star !

Hi Lucy, absolutely fabulous blanket congratulations on finishing it! What a work of art, truly a family heirloom if ever I saw one! Once I've finished my granny square blanket, I'm going to try out this pattern, I've only just learnt to crochet, with lots of help from your very clear tutorials. Thanks very much & keep blogging I love reading them. Claire x


Just beautiful..just so very beautiful..wish I had your talent for picking colors. You are very talented. I plan on making one soon, but without your color pattern I don't think it will be near the beauty of yours! By the way you are beautiful too..bet it's all that joy in your heart. :)
I'm stil working my way through your blog, what an oasis in my day..thank you so much for it! Hugs!!


Hello Lucy!
Your blanket is simply gorgeous!!! When I saw it, I wanted to have one for myself. So I crocheted the last 2 months like blazes and yesterday I finished it! Maybe you want to have a look, you can find it her: http://dieehefrau.de/2012/04/18/ozean-welle-ocean-ripple/
Thank you for your inspiration!

I do not understand the second row in the ripple afghan..can you help?

Samantha Forintos

I have a few questions about your beautiful ripple. If you have a moment, you can contact me at sforinto@nmu.edu.


You are so talented and the directions you give are amazing. My mom taught me how to crochet and since she passed away I haven't picked up any yarn. When I read your directions it was like my mom was sitting there giving me help all the way. Thank you!

Victoria Catchings

Wow, I love your projects but this is great! I'm making one, but my problems getting the sides straight! Any tips?

Suzy Q

I found your pattern after searching for ripple afghan patterns and I loved it instantly! I printed it off and Im about 25 rows in and its coming out just gorgeous! I cant wait until its finished! I like your pattern much better than another ripple afghan I just finished because its wavy rather than V like. Thank you so much for creating this pattern!


Love it....so beautiful...and thank you

Hello Lucy, I've attempted the ripple blanket 8 times and every time, got it wrong. I counted those stitches very, very carefully. I did 213. Perfect. But...somehow, by the 2nd row, I was out of whack! :-( I realised I thought I had to do the last two trebles in the last of those four trebles! I realised it was meant to be done in the third chain of the three chain turning!!!! So, now I've started for the 9th time, I'm almost at the end of the first row and i think I'm going to smash it! Meaning, do it perfectly and do it well! Can you see that I'm smiling?? :-)))))))

Liz Strachan

Lucy, you are so-o-o clever. I love your explorations in design which are turned into beautiful items. Your ripple blanket is gorgeous, and I love your 'hooky trim' as well. And I've already made a 'blooming flower' cushion.
And your photographs of the countryside around your home are beautiful (as are the ones of Dorset). I particularly loved the one of your street at night - made me feel quite nostalgic. Please keep blogging forever!

Dorean Pearson

I just love looking at all your beautiful blankets that you have made... I have even used some of your patterns to make a few of my own. I just love your website.... Keep it coming.


so beautiful blanket, super!!!

Hello Lucy,
Just finished my first blanket! TaaDaahh! Granny stripe with black picot edging couldn't resist putting in extra, strong colours. Driving to Wales today and starting my next blanket soft colours ripple, been buying odd balls of lovely stuff on ebay for ages, cheapest way to do it.
Thanks for the inspiration! Gill
