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

Thanks i found the edge pattern, here i go im starting it now. Thanks


On the start of the edge you did the granny clusters around. When you came to the beginning of the blanket edge that has in American terms the single crochets and not spaces, did you put the clusters in between so many stitches to make it look like the rest of the first row of the edge? I think I will finish off the beginning row of single crochets around the edge with the first color used to make the entire edge match and forgo the granny cluster, otherwise the one end of the blanket will have this extra row of single crochets and the rest won't and to me it will stick out making that stripe look wider.


Love this granny striped afghan, almost finished and getting ready to do the border. How many ch in the corners of the border rows?


Hello Lucy, just love the blanket!! It is awesome and will have make one. I ordered the yarn and ready to go for it . Do you have a list of the color pattern you used? I know you you used them randomly and I really like how you combined them. Thanks in advance.


Is there a list in the order of the colors you used for the granny stripe blanket? Thank you

Hollis Tinney

I found d the packet of yarn but am interested
In the price of the yarn in U.S. money and how do I go about ordering it. Please pm me. Thank you


That's a fantastic looking blanket!

Brenda Tackitt

Yippee skippee!!!! My granny stipe pack came today! Love, love the colors! Nothing like a yarn fest to make the heart flip flop. Thanks Lucy. You rock lovey! The woolwarehouse comes through again. :)

Robin Summers

I am a bit behind the times but I ordered the Granny Stripe pack from the wool warehouse. They were out of the Cosy Stripe pack which I wanted so I will get that one too when it comes in stock. :) I can't wait for it to arrive. I am itching to start my granny stripe blanket. Thanks again Lucy for all your time and unselfish talent that you share with us. Much love and hugs to you and the family.

Lucy, I have only made little tiny baby blankets, but when I saw this beautiful pattern, I was smitten! I made a granny stir blanket for my daughter in rainbow colors... Just the colors and the warmth of the blanket on my lap as I was crocheting made me feel so happy! Did not realize the joy of making blankets... I am hooked! ;)

Melanie Moore

Just started mine with yarn pack from Yarndale.
It's looking good so far. Thanks for the inspiration. X


I did it I made the Granny Stripe blanket and even finished all the little ends.
thanks for this wonderful pattern. It is going to make a special family very happy.



Just finishing the blanket and have had a lot of people say they really love it. I am making this for my niece as a family blanket as they celebrate the arrival of their third baby.

Love your patterns



Where am I missing the pattern for this beautiful afghan

Jan Lakovich

Lucy you're awesome -- cute as a bug, very clever writer and full of hooky talent!! This California Grammy (aka Tooky) hates working the tails in. Your blanky doesn't show any sign of bulkiness at the color change row ends ... how did you do it?

P.S. You're my favorite hooker!


Hi Lucy, I have been searching for the info on how to work the edging, so I'm glad I found this post. The only problem for me being a novice is that you don't include the details of how the corners are worked and for a novice like myself that is pretty vital info. Is there any chance you could add that detail? I can follow a pattern no problems but I can't look at a picture and work it out.
Thanks sandy

Joan Ward

I'm tidying up the tails and will start the edging tonight, I got my yarn from Carrie in The Knitting Room in Dublin. I absolutely love it and have bought my second pack to do the ripple next. Thanks Lucy, I love it. Joan :-)


Lovely blanket - when you say 10 balls of wool, is this in total?
i want to make this for a baby - what size would you recommend?



Lucy I have begun making this as a "family blanket" in place for a new baby blanket. The older siblings will have many things to pass on so I thought a family blanket made of so many colors they would each see something they loved incorporated in this.

But I will still have to make a cocoon for the new one.


Beautiful. Did you use all 17 balls of yarn?

Mary Edwards

Lucy, I am new to your site. Just recently after many years started back crocheting and I must say, some of the loveliest things I have seen are products of your amazing talent. I read in one of the post above that I might be able to get the yarn I need from Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn" or Micheals "Impeccable". Are they the same? One lady said she was using "Creative Cotton". Will one get the same effect as you have gotten? I look forward to receiving updates along the way. Thank you for sharing.

Gemma Blackwell

Bloomin love your blog, almost as much as I love to crochet! Can't wait to get cracking on this one x

Siobhan Keens

Hey Lucy, thanks for the awesome blanket pattern! I've just linked the pattern in my review for stylecraft special dk :)

<3 see you at yarndale!!


Dear Lucy!
I am so super excited to start your granny stripe blanket today. I'm from Berlin, Germany and ordered the stylecraft dk kit at deramores. I stored the whole pack in our bedroom for over 2 months, not dearing to open the seal. But today is the day and I am starting the chain right now. (Hoping that my little toddler Emma will let me crochet at all.)
I really love your blog and all the patterns that you are sharing. There is really no design I do not like!

Lots of greeting from Berlin!
Christina :)
