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

I am now inspired in what to do with all the balls left over from knitting my daughter a granny square blanket, now a coloured one. For myself x

Gail Treasure

Gorgeous! Since there are no chains along the sides, how did you do the join as you go method?

Katherine Scott

I've read all but i can not find what size hook you used Could you please tell me thank you


Hi Lucy,

Could you please tell me where to find your "Spot on" border instructions. I followed all the posts for this blanket but can't find it anywhere. Thank you if you can help.


I made this! I only did 135 squares, but it looks so good. The colours really pop. I finished it with a flannel backing. I love it and my cats do too.


I love this but could you just help me out a mo: Tr is the same as Double crochet???

Thank you thank you


I so want to. Make this but ... I have to learn to crotchet first
Thanx for being so generous
X joy


I love this blanket and would like to have a go at making a similar one. I just have a question - how do you join as you go if you have no chain spaces on the sides?


What size hook did you use? It's gorgeous, love it, and I always love your choice of colors :)


I absolutely love your website.. Great colors & theme. Did you cteate this site yourself? Please reply back aas I'm hoping to create my very own site and would love to learn where you got this from or exactly what the theme is named. Many thanks!

I know how to join Granny Squares together as you go , thanks to Lucy. Does anyone out there know of an easy method to join other squares as you go. By that I mean squares where the last round is in treble stitch. Best wishes to everyone. Sheila D Leader

Lucy did you ever have a chance to post a tutorial about your Spot-On Edging? I would love to try it but haven't been able to find it on your site.
Thanks for your generosity with sharing so much of what you do: you're a real inspiration!

Could you do a double crochet instead of a triple crochet?


So beautiful and inspiring


I'm working on this design also.
I've made 50 squares so fun. Thanks for the inspiring photos.

Love it! Thanks Lucy. My Scottish grannie taught me to crochet when I was a girl. I am a grannie myself now and working on my first blanket. I think I am in a love/hate relationship with it. Some days I love it - some not so much! Anyway, you have inspired me to carry one - your work is beautiful - when I finish this I want to try a patchworks for my grandsons.
Thank you


Wow! I love it! I was just going to comment how much it reminds me of Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, but I see you've made the same connection!


Love the blanket Lucy, you have inspired me to learn to crochet. I'm going to buy the stylecraft wool, will I just need one ball of each colour? I live in Melbourne so will be buying online...........much cheaper than buying the wool here!!
Thanks again for the inspiration!!


Hi Lucy! i've just finished a huge patch blanket and would LOVE this tutorial to finish off the border - just incase you thought we might have forgotten about it, hehe, I'm waiting ever so patiently! ;)


That is the most beautiful blanket I have ever seen.


Love this so much I've started my own one. Im making it so big that I can fit my whole family under it so it may take a while.
Would love to do the spot on border also.


Simply beautiful.


Oh my goodness!!! It is simply fantastic!!!!!!


it's fabulous! especially the border is just perfect for the great result.


I absolutely love your 'TA-DA' moments! This blanket is beautiful and I'm sure it will spend many happy years going on holiday with you all and keep your loved ones snug :-)
Lovely border-that edging is so cool!
