Hi Lucy - I'm a huge fan of your blog and love your designs! I would really like to make the sweet flower blanket and wondered if there was a tutorial for the squares?

Thank you

Hi Lucy

I discovered your site early 2015 and am so thrilled with it. Your work is absolutely stunning and very inspiring. I've done 2 wavey blanky's and one edging so far. Love your colour and am now looking at the triangles.
Many Many thanks
and have a Sunshine Day
Regards, Sherryl from South Africa


Hi Lucy, I just love your blanket. You are so creative and I love the way you put colors together. I hope you will be posting a pattern for the squares sometime soon. I look forward to more of your creativity. Thank you,

I was wondering if you could do a tutorial showing how to turn the picot flowers into granny squares? I'm a seasoned knitter, but a beginner hooker, and it isn't obvious to me I'm afraid! I know this is a really old post, but this is my favourite of all your blankets, and you are my complete idol (slightly embarrassing) and I want to make one like this! It would mean a lot to me :)




This blanket is just stunning! Did you ever share the pattern for the square? Would love to try it.
Your work is so inspiring to so many. You truly have a gift.


I love this!!!! The colors are gorgeous!


Wow, that's awesome! :) Sooo colorful.
Just waiting for yarnto arrive to make a blanket myselfe :)


It's so beautiful xx


Hi Lucy, Same question as above. I ordered the yarn through the link and that was super easy. Thank you for that.
My sister turned me on to your site and I just can't turn away. I love the colors on all of your items.
I believe I can slowly figure out the pesty flowers, but I too was hoping to see a tutorial. It is just the beginning portion that is needed.
But I could do the Mandala Wheels instead, but I just love the blanket.
Thank you for the inspiration.


Hi Lucy. Did you ever write a pattern up for this? I would love to give this a go.

This is AMAZING! I'm working on a whole bunch of granny squares and probably have enough to make a coat, but can't find a pattern with a tapered shaping and have almost 0 crochet experience so I hesitate to make up a pattern even though I seem to be designing one in my head! I will definitely use granny stripes somewhere in there. Lots of great inspiration on your blog, as usual.

I just love the way you put your colors together.

Will you be posting a pattern for the sweet flower square?

Hello Lucy,
I'm Helena, and my daughter recently found "your Attic", when I said I would like to make a little blanket for a new baby in the family. I've been visiting and discovering "you" everyday. I'm now starting a blanket. a mixture between Sweet-flower-granny-blanket and Summer Garden Granny Square. Can you please tell me which method you used to join the squares, as-you-go or joining granny squares?
Thank you for your lovely, colorful Attic. Keep up the good work.

Fabolous,fabolous.You are such a great inspiration Lucy. I am stunned by your works,and it is a great treat everytime to visit your blogg.You are great.


I just love it. I love your choice of colors and the way you put them together. Will you make the pattern available?



Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I'm trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it's the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.


Wonderful blanket. It very much reminds me of Kaffe Fasset's work.


This is one gorgeous blanket. Congratulations!Could you share the pattern for the little flowers with leaves ?Thank you.


I am in love with anything crochet which has the word 'granny' attached to it, just by looking at all our wonderful creations...can't wait to start working on them myself...

Thank you sooooo very much for sharing your ideas..
Best wishes :)


Hi Lucy,
Can you tell me how you attach the sweet little flowers and leaves to the centers of the blocks? I've thought about this but think if I tried it my way, the back of the throw would be a mess.
Yours is beautiful, by the way. Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us.

Charlotte Chapman

I am so in love with this blanket. I'd like to make my own version. Do you have a pattern for it, please?



Oh my... drooling.... what a lovely sweet blanket!!! Just love it. Do you have a tutorial or a link with instructions on how to make flower granny squares? .... not sure i know how to crochet those.... Thanks in advance!

How did you make the middle of the granny squares look like flowers as opposed to the usual first row of the granny square. I like the ruffle. Any secret?


Hi Lucy,
Do you have a tutorial for this beautiful sweet flower granny blanket? I am new at crocheting but would love to give it a try! Thanks for doing such beautiful work. I love reading your blog!


Oh it is soo lovely your colors are just all so beautiful together I would love to have one of these on my bed . You do beautiful work. You inspire me to go with all those beautiful colors and keep crocheting !!
