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

Hi Lucy, I only found your website quite recently, having rediscovered crochet this winter, after a break of many years. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it!

I love your hat pattern, and I've now made three! One in DK and two in Rowan All Seasons Cotton Chunky, (they're my favourites!) It's the first hat that has ever suited me, I think. Perfect for early morning dog walking at this time of year.

Thank you for sharing your skills, ideas, and enthusiasm for life.

Rona Griffiths

Lucy, thank you for the idea and for sharing how you made your hat, I needed a hat for when my husband and I go walking now it is coming into winter and I made mine yesterday, loving it, Rona xxx

My dear Lucy, I truly love the hat and you in it. I did not know how cute you are. I don't look good in hats so it's a no go for me at the moment but I love looking at you. Thank you for all you do for us and I hope you don't stop.


Just found this hat. I love it. Is there a pattern somewhere? I would like to download it and make it sometime soon. Thanks for all your inspiration. I'm working on my 2nd granny striped blanket using my leftover yarn. I'm loving it.

Awesome hat. I reminds me of a 1920's style which very popular now with The Dawton Abby series on bbc.

Wilma Smith

Have just come across this on the web and it looks super. Could you give me some basic information as am a novice crocheter. How many chains to start; how many trebles into ring and how did you work your increases?
Many thanks

Robin Summers

I love your hat Lucy. It is so you. You say you have a little head. Better a little head than a big head that nothing fits on. LOL I love the triple layer flower. You are so creative. Thanks for sharing your design with us. :D




Hi Lucy, this is just the hat I am looking for, making it for a friend that is in Chemo.I wonder if I make the brim a few rows larger it will look as good as your design.
Please advise I already started to work on it.
Thanks very much and please continue creating so pretty things!!!!!


Am very much a crochet novice, having completed a granny stitch sampler blanket, taught my self your neat ripple pattern and having made 1 baby hat with ears. Would love a toddler size pattern for the hat you made: I have a little someone in mind who is 12months old now. Any chance you could share/resize the pattern? Please...


Hi Lucy,

Just wondering if you posted the tutorial for the flower. I would love to give it a go!

Jacky Fry

I have only just discovered your site through another crafting blog.
How talented you are and obviously more than generous with your time and all the patterns.I have my first Grandchild due in the Spring and thought your bower bird would be wonderful hanging in the nursery...
Keep inspiring us!

Eleanor Cullivan

Love the hat. Want to scale it down for my granddaughter for Easter. Will use cotton to make it for her. She will look so cute in it!
