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

Love the afghan! Also the pillows shown with it. Could you share the pattern for your crocheted pillows shown above.

Nathalie

Hi Lucy, I am from Montréal. I like your blog too much. I learn crochet with you.

Which crochet you use for this blanket? #4?

Thank for sharing

Hi Lucy, the thing I love the most about your work is how you put the colors toguether. I bought the color pack to reproduce your granny stripe blanket and managed to get the first 17 colors starting from the pomegranet color. is it asking to much if you could write down the remaining color sequence??? I just don't have that eye to mix colors like you do. Thanks anyway...

Lydia

I don't think you went crazy or bonkers with the pictures...I think it is a nice touch and lets us see the many different angles and views of the project. Plus it shows different combinations with the pillows and the different locations show the versatility of this project in your home. Thanks for a wonderful idea. I am making one using a J/10-6.00mm hook for a larger outcome and varied scrap yarns so I just connect the new color wherever and keep going. I will make one that requires the color change technique later, after I have used up All of my scrap yarn...and I have a lot of it. :-)

Gillian

Hi I saw your link to the demores site for the colours you used but how many balls.of each do you need? Thanks

Heather Love

Beautiful! How would you start this? With a chain?

bimbi

love the tutorial, thank you so much :D
you can see my granny stripe in here http://crazybluecat.wordpress.com/2011/12/31/my-granny-stripe-d-yay/

I've followed your pattern successfully and I'll be ready to finish off with a border after a couple more rows but I'm just wondering how I get rid of all the ends where the colours have been tied in. Do I simply snip them off?

Wow Lucy, it's stunning - you're such an inspiration. I only taught myself to crochet just over a year ago and I'm slowly filling the house with blankets. I am usually a quilter, but since having a baby I don't have the time to get out all the sewing stuff - crochet, on the other hand, is perfect for filling the quiet evenings when baby is in bed. I'm truly inspired by your work. You've actually got me onto Stylecraft special dk - I can't afford the more expensive wool. I've just started a new project - but I might just have to start a granny stripe one too!! Thank you for your inspiration xxx

On my third Granny stripe blanket. I am totally addicted to making them. Love how they are so relaxing just sitting and making lovely colourful stripes. I was going to keep one for myself and gift the others but haven't been able to part with any of them yet!!

Mel

Is there a link anywhere with step by step photos?
I am keen to make a start on this blanket but am quite new to crochet and need a little hand holding!!!! Thanks

dolores shorey

I love this blanket and would like to attempt a single bed size.

As a novice, this is my first 'big' project and I'd appreciate some advice, please.

What sort of starting chain would you recommend?

Thanks

liesbeth

Hallo Lucy
What a lovely blanket! I am in love with it :-)
Please can you tell me what order you use the colours?
I am sorry, my english is not verry good.
Thanks for inspirating me to crochet .

Jessi

Your blanket is lovely! Thanks for the edging idea. I used it in my latest granny afghan. It makes the blanket look finished and lovely!

Jan Ritchie

Hi Lucy, I loved your blankie so much, and the fact you told us what wool to look for. I've been so inspired, have started one of my own, and I love it! I've followed your instructions and am thrilled to report that it's straight! Quite an achievement for me, lol. Thank you so very much for sharing, if I find the button, I'll send you a coffee :D

Marsha

Would like to order one...

marwa

Wowwww..... awesome work

Beverley

I've just started my own Granny Stripe Blanket in very similar colours to yours. Think it will be the perfect take-on-holiday project since I won't be needing a pattern. Hope mine turns out as yummy as yours.

Caitlin Skipper

How do you keep your edges straight?!? Please email me!!!!

Jo Haynes

I have never seen such a well made afghan. Each stitch looks perfect, each row looks perfect. I've crocheted for years and I don't get the perfect look like you. did. I love your afghan.

BILLIE JEAN TAYLOR

Would like to do this for a baby afghan--colorful and soft.

Pam Tomkinson

HI Lucy, Thanks for your reply!! Can I use this decrease From Bunny that you sent me for doing the type of edging that is not the granny edge but the Treble stitch all around like yours above?? Cuz the tutorial explains it for using it with the granny type edge??
Also I have never blogged or used twitter but I see all you crocheters are using these things which do you like?
