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.

Been planning it for some time. Started today. Have two rows of petals done. Just in time too. Someone wanted the seat on the train next to me where my bags were sitting while I concentrated on keeping the count correct.
Bought some more wool after receiving ten huge 200gm balls for my birthday. Hubby said I had to make something for the gift-giver. Decided on a Blooming Cushion for her using the 18 balls of wool bought for my Patchwork Rug (Lucy's rug design of course).
Thought I had better start before summer hits here in the southern hemisphere. :-)
Thank you Lucy for sharing your crochet adventures.

Can you help me on the pattern of the blooming Flower Cushion pattern?
Thank you so much.

My version - comments in Danish, sorry, but a link to your tutorial.



Perhaps this has already been answered, but what brand/name yarn did you use? The pillow is spectacular and the yarn looks delicious! Thanks for sharing.

Have read and re-read the tutorial. I am anxious to start this wonderful project! I must be missing something, as I can't find anywhere in the directions what size crochet hook or weight of yarn you used. What is the finished diameter of the cushion what is the gauge of your stitches?


Lucy! You can't do it to me. You gave us your pattern and lovely photos and now I can't make it as I do not know what yarn you used. It's so painful!!! I used some of my simple acrylic yarn but it's terrible and my knowledge about it is very little. I have enven read all the comments hopping somebody asked the same question and you answered. Gosh, please reveal the secret.


Hi there. Your pillow is fantastic!!!!! I need to do one for myself as I love the colours. Could you please tell what yarn and hook size did you use? Thank you

U r tutorials are superb just like u. Wish I could send u the photo of the cushion I made. I am making another one for my sis. Thanks for the lovely pattern. Do come up with pattern for babies.

Have just started this cushion, but not sure about my colours, what wool did you use + where was it from? x

Dear Lucy, I am from India. I was in total love with your blooming flower cushion pattern. I tried it many times but in vain. Finally, with my every concentration I tried it and I was able to do it. It was just superb. I made it in yellow and pink colour combination. Whenever I used to do this pattern in train (travelling for my workpace for an hour), everybody would look at me and asked me for this lovely pattern. I told them about u. It just turned a wonderful cushion and is dawning my sofa. My sister has already told me to do for her one. Marvellous work by u. I hope I could send u a photo of it. All of ur work is wonderful. You too look beautiful like u r work. I am in complete awe of it. I always wait for u r new patterns. Bye. Love u. waiting for u r reply.

Hi Lucy,

I was wondering how many balls/skeins of yarn you used, the weight of the yarn and the size hook you used. Yours looks simply wonderful just as is. Wonderful job!

Just a question about this pattern. Round 6 starts with a chain 1 and ends with instructions to slip stitch into 3rd chain of the beginning chain 3. Does that mean the the round should start with a chain 3? I am making mine with a gradient yarn so just using a continuous thread instead of changing colours. It is a bit strange at the endIng snd starting of rows but I don't think it will be noticed in the end.


I'm trying to make this and have a question. My first round of pedals I ended up with 7 pedals, not six. Not sure why this happened. Any thoughts? Do you skip any spaces?


Superbe, j'adore, merci pour ce magnifique tuto.
Je vais mettre le lien sur mon blog.
Un bisous de France <3

Thank you very much, for this great tutorial. I am already on my way to the store to buy some yarn :-)


Lucy....what size did the cushion turn out to be please? I am wanting to order a cushion pad for when I've finished but I don't know what size to order!
Thanks for any help you can give me ♥


Fantastic project, congratulations and many thanks for sharing it with us!!! :) What number of crochet hook have you used to make it?

mary alice wallace

I have not picked up a crochet hook in nearly 20 years, until I saw your flower cushion. I dont know what it was, but now I am nearly done with my top! It has been fun, while its so cold outside, to sit by the fire with these beautiful colours. Thank you for the inspiration! I enjoy all you make, thanks for sharing.


Thank you so much for sharing this pattern, I have just made use of the snow days by making one - blogged it and given you a thumbs up there


I started this beauty last night. I love your clear, no-nonsense style of instruction.

Merly Williams
