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

These can be made in a tube. They are made to size which is why it's hard to give a pattern. If you do rows, you join together with a blanket or whip stitch, leaving a two inch hole (approximately) for the thumb hole. If you do in a continuous round, after you do the length desired from wrist to thumb, you work your row, making a chain about 5 stitches (avg-could be one or two more or even less). As you work the next row in, you incorporate the stitches in that chain and that makes the thumb hole. I usually do 7,8, or 9 rows after making the thumb hole. Not trying to take over Lucy's blog- love the products!, but I was just trying to answer those who had a few questions. Hope I helped.

Hy lucy, So I figured it I wanted then I had to learn it, thanks to you for all your patterns and tutorials I am coming along good on all the projects I have on my basket.



Hi Lucy
Saw these at the weekend, and have ordered some beautiful yarn to make some for Christmas presents!
Can I just ask how you stitched them up?
Thanks so much this-they look gorgeous, as does the rest of your blog :)
Have a fabulous Christmas!

Is there any way you could send the pattern? My daughter is a beginner and needs to have instructions. Three months after our home was destroyed by fire she was diagnosed. It was the stress. I had no idea that everyone has the gene for that. She was only 11 at the time. The first time she was hospitalized for ketoacidocis she was so bored that she let me teach her to crochet. I love the patten and but judging by the date of your last post I've got this dreadful feeling I won't be hearing from you.


no actual pattern here right?


I am being a bit slow - newbie here...

so the 35 chain goes round your wrist but you dont join it to make a 'tube' right?


Lovely wrist warmers.. but how do you stitch up the length? I'm struggling on this one :-s


You suggest a startingchain of 35 whichis helpful,but how many rounds should I do and how much to leave open for the thumb

Hi Lucy
I'm just about to make the wristwarmers. I haven't been crocheting very long but I'm wondering if there is a way to make them without a seam. Ie. a tube with a thumb hole worked in somehow?
Any ideas?

I love this wrist warmer pattern! I am a crochet noobie, and this was very simple...however, I am having some trouble (surprisingly) with the part where I fold the pattern in half to join the sides. I just cannot figure out how to do it without making it look messy--especially when I get to the part where i have to make the gap for the thumb hole! I just don't know what to do -.-

I really hope you are able to help. =] Thanks a ton again for posting this great pattern!
