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

It's a pretty stitch, a bit like larksfoot pattern, http://adaliza.com/?s=larksfoot+crochet but without the gaps between the colours. Maybe it's a Lucy original!


Oh you have my mind going crazy trying to figure out what you did. Need this stitch pattern as I am a stitch junkie! LOL VERY pretty.


Very pretty stitch. I don't recognise it, but I'm not knowledgeable to really! Looking forward to seeing what will bust out of your Creative Mind next - it's an exciting place!

I swear by stylecraft chunky and a 6mm hook for all my beginners classes. I doesn't split often and is easy to see the stitches. I think we should lobby the manufacturer to make all the DK colours though.

looks to me like a few treble stitches being done in double crochets to start by dipping down into a lower stitch then it creates a dip from that first row and carry on


That's a gorgeous stitch. Love the texture! Reminds me a bit of one I've seen before: http://www.mooglyblog.com/leapingstripes-blocks-blanket-crochet/


Have you tried the Stylecraft Aran? Just bought it recently to make another blanket for my son. It's lovely and very soft.

I made a crochet link scarf with style craft chunky acrylic/wool mix and loved it. Did it with a huge 20 mm hook, used denim blue and cream colours in alternating links which looks good when I wear jeans and jumper - sort of "perks" it up. Look forward to seeing your bag Lucy xxx

I made a winter's hat, cowl and mittens in Drops Andes - an alpaca and wool mix - which I can thoroughly recommend. Warm and squidgy :)
I think it might be super chunky though - I used 7mm hook. x


A bit like the larksfoot stitch.

I did one you can see it here http://onceuponapinkmoon.blogspot.com/2013/12/blue-waves.html

It was a fun blanket to make!


Drops Andes is lush - not sure if it's bright enough for you though, rainbow lady!


My favourite chunky is King Cole Magnum. It has 25% wool and is available in a range of lovely colours

Hi Lucy
Deramores Vintage Chunky is lovely to knit or crochet with a mixture of merino wool and acrylic, and its so soft.x


It is like an indented blanket stitch in embroidery. I used to use it for making door stops before I discovered the crochet light.


Hi Lucy, my favourite chunky/aran is this one from Rooster yarns, http://www.roosteryarns.com/rooster-almerino-aran.html

it works up beautifully. I knitted a jacket for my nephew on knitting 4.5/5mm so the same, depending on your tension, would be ok. Loving the new projects. Karen x


Your stitch also reminds me a bit of bargello in needlepoint.


I love hunky yarn. Works up so quick which means you can make more things!!! I have used 3 yarn strands together today with a 9mm hook and have been super fast. Soooo much fun. Your tension looks fab on your practice piece. Cannot wait to see your bag. I also made a bag with cluster stitch yesterday but still to blog about that. However if you are interested I have blogged today about using three yarn strands. http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/crocheted-heart-pillows.html?m=1


Ooh I love chunky yarn and just tried the stylecraft and loved it. Also love James C Brett Chunky with Merino but colours are really limited which is a shame as its snuggly soft! X

Gwennie Nunn

I love Sirdar Click Chunky with 30% wool in Verve (110) which I had left over from a jumper, and am using this to practise crochet with a 5mm hook. It's a lovely soft yarn.


I agree, it seems similiar to Larksfoot pattern. Whatever it is, I want to know when you publish it, please! So pretty!!!


Hi! Love this pattern, it's very like the 'leaping blocks' pattern I used for a baby blanket for my son, but it's daintier somehow- I'd love to know how you did it!

Wendy Rance

Can't wait to see what you make out of this stitch, blankets come to mind. Ooohhh and bag patterns, keep up the good work, you are inspirational Lucy.


I am loving your stitch...nice and dense so that there are not any gaps...hope there is a tut for this in the future.


Oh I know that pattern!


I love the pattern one of my faveys though it takes a long time...well worth the detail

Angela-Southern USA

A lovely pattern( be sure to write it down), I agree with the others,it looks similar to the larksfoot stitch. I think I'd turn my sample into a pair of hand warmers, or a hook caddy. :)It would be nice if the wool companies followed the embroidery thread manufactures with the array of color choices. Btw, I've started a poncho, lol, inspired from you of course. Happy hooking!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
