how to create a flowers pattern on chusion? you so amazing lucy!



Hi Lucy

I just love this granny flower patch. Do you perhaps have the pattern pls xx


Just beautiful ♥ Please could you post a tutorial for the actually Granny Square? I know it's simple but it's terrible hard to see on the screen. Thank you!


Loving this Lucy, what yarn did you use? Do you remember? Good luck at Yarndale as we are exhibiting at West Point stitch show in Exeter, hopefully next time.

Lucy I love this cushion and have begun hooking away at the grannies...so very satisfying :-) I have been attempting to hook the little flowers though and am having difficulties getting them just right, and as nice as your look...don't spose you could enlighten me could you? Love your blog, you are a real inspiration, thanks a million. Vicky xxx

Hi think your crocheting is wonderful. Went to bed with your crochet roses and woke up to find I had made quite a few and they were lovely. Your tutorials are very good. Long may you inspire me with your blog.

Hi Lucy - get better soon! I love your ideas and your colours. We are experiencing scorching (read - wilting, sweating, keep indoors, aircon pumping furiously..) summer heat here but nothing deters me from my crochet/knit/creativeness! It's rather strange to be crocheting afghans and throws or even planning them when winter is a faded memory and not even close on the horizon yet, but....that's what keeps me going. That, and the inspiration from blogs such as yours! Keep up the wonderful work.
lots of love, Nadine x


OMGosh, I have been drooling over all your lovlies, do you ever sell any of your hand mades???? Your flower afgan is amazing, your pillows are dreamy!! The pincushions are fabulous, that layerd flower piloow is over the top wonderful, the colors just make me smile and I am a primitive neutral girl!lol I love, love, love the wreath!!! You rock with the crochet hooks and color choices!!! xo Kim


These are so beautiful like the rest of your work. Where did you get the pattern for the flowers? I'd love to have a go at this.

Much love

absolutely positivily the best site i have ever seen on the internet ---- i am very very impressed!!! and i luv all your work and look forward to seeing more !

Liz Wallis

Hi Lucy!
I can only say, thank you, thank you, thank you! I am a crocheter, but one which doesn't do too well reading patterns - they always seem so technical! Your instructions are fabulous - and make it all seem a hundred times easier to follow. "Thank you"! Am totally inspired by your work - it is imaginative and exquisitely beautiful! Absolutely love your site - and will be here often!
warm regards,
Liz (South Africa)

I found a pattern but lost the website...it is for a hexagon granny square that makes a flower. But how to I make an outside square from a hexagon?


Your work is really wonderful and so inspiring. Several of my bookclub now crochet madly (and in my case, badly). Of all your beautiful things, this is the one I love the most. I am making a granny square blanket in the join as you go method. Can you tell me when I block it - once the blanket is finished or several times during the process? Really would appreciate your advice.

I just love what you have made, so beautiful, I am inspired to have a go at crochet, I did know how to do it and years ago made a baby jacket, will be interesting to see if I remember, thank you for the inspiration.

Sioux McGee

Hi Lucy , I've only just discovered your blog...and I have to say I am now 'hooked' :)
I feel so inspired i am going to attempt the ripple blanket......love your choice f colours.
Thank you for your wonderful words and inspirational items
Much love

My neighbor got crazy when she knew and saw the different things she could make with that material,I think after that she is starting to make some them.


I am doing a granny square cushion cover but I am confused about how to do the backside. Can you please advice? Thank you.

I love your crocheted cushions and everything you do. I am crocheting a throw now and I am loving doing it. I just joined your blog and your tutorials are wonderful!


I've had your blog bookmarked for some time now & visit frequently. I adore all your crocheted projects and can't wait to give the flowered granny square project a try! :) I also want to thank you for your post about blocking. I have been crocheting for 30 years (since I was 7 years old!) and have never heard of blocking! Isn't that crazy?! So thank you for the post! Your blog is so inspiring!
