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'd love to subscribe to your blog but the page is not available. Could you check on that?

My edge started to ruffle on row 4 . So I changed it to put the stitch ABOVE the skipped row 2 stitch, in the row 3 CH above it. It straightened right out, if that helps anyone else. I LOVE this pattern overall!

Emma

Hi Lucy, I'm just starting out and hoped to be able to make the cosy stripe blanket. I've quickly realised that I need to start with a granny square blanket having mastered these with a kind tutor. The colours are so lovely I wondered how I could use the yarn I've bought for the stripe blanket? I've discovered that I'm someone who needs a pattern to follow so I've found myself quite stuck and disheartened about where to begin. Thank you in anticipation, Emma

Charlie

I have just started making this blanket and it is by far the easiest tutorial I have found! And I LOVE it! Thankyou! x

Sharon coates

I have absolutely loved making this blanket, as I novice I found the tutorial invaluable thankyou. Sadly I ran out of the green 2 feet from the end of my final border row, should I have changed to a smaller hook for this?

Nicky Phillimore

Thank you, Lucy. Loved doing this blanket although I just made it big enough to wrap the children in the car. Used your method of using the pegs to decide on colours and got a result that I would never have worked out without them but it worked beautifully. One day I would love to visit the attic; I live in York. x

Sandra

I finished in time for Christmas! Hurray! Thank you so much for this truly gorgeous pattern. I added a border of flowers, which is why it has taken so long to finish but so worth it. You inspire us all so much! Happy New Year to you and your family and thank you again! My Tah-dah: https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com/2015/12/30/cal9-cosy-blanket-ta-dah/

It has taken me a whole year in between other projects and packing up the house for our move after Christmas. Thank you for the great tutorials Lucy and have a wonderful Christmas 2015. Love my cosy blanket and it will have pride of place on the sofa in my new kitchen.

Em

I too have a fluted edge down the side. I used 4 hook for both edge and blanket. Any help would be appreciated. Gorgeous blanket x

Hi Lucy, I started working on the cosy blanket when my third baby was still a newborn (now a 5 m/o giant), and he's been keeping it warm for his big sister while sleeping on my belly. I didn't obey your instructions for darning in all the ends, so before I can enjoy making this lovely border, I have a couple of boring evenings with all the loose ends ahead of me (tsk tsk... I know, it's my own fault). I have a tab opened on this website and whilst at work I can't help myself looking at it, longing for the tah-dah! moment when I'll finally finish my first-of-hopefully-many blanket(s). Thank you for your wonderful website. You are such an inspiration. I love the colors, the joy and happiness that just drips from your tutorials.

Lyn Barnard

Have just finished this gorgeous blanket but my edging is fluted (unless I really stretch it). Do you think I should have worked just one treble into each stitch on the sides in the first row of edging. The end edges which had one treble in each stitch sit perfectly. I must add that this is my first ever crochet blanket & I have loved making it, in actual fact I have started another using your coast colour theme. Thank you for this lovely pattern. Kindest regards, Lyn

Denise

New to crochet and have been to five classes, so my cosy stripe blanket is miniature size in baby colours to fit a pram, and delighted with my results. However I am now on the last row of edging, only finished one side but I feel that it is making the blanket fluted, wavy along the edge and not lying flat. Can anyone tell me is this how it's suppose to look or is my crochet work maybe too tight on this last row of edging.

Deb

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, one and all! lol I've heard from Lucy (bless her heart) and the edging instructions are correct and the edging is worked with a 4mm hook. Hope this clears up confusion for those that comment after me. ;)

Deb

Hi Lucy,
I have loved making your cozy stripe blanket so much. The colors thrill me in that they take on such a different look in different lighting. I am now going to start the edging and like someone else wondered, have the edging instructions been altered by you to be correct or do I have to try and follow the corrections noted in the comments? And hook size?? Was there a change? I'm confused. No idea if you will have the time to answer these questions, but I sure hope so. Or, if anyone here could assist?

katherine edgar

Just completed mine yesterday evening absolutely love it thank you for the pattern and inspiration

Roselyne richards

Dear Lucy Ijust finished my blanket and loved it all the way . I found your instruction clear and easy. Row four : Iknew where to push my crochet because you have put yours (in the photo) exactly where we,all, should put ours. It made it very obvious.
Each time I had a question.I search in your photos and always found my answer.
Thank you for such a lovely project and am expecting your next one with impatience.
Again, many thanksfrom Roselyne

Pat Sever

Hi Lucy. i loved the pattern for this cosy stripe blanket which I worked with spice, claret, gold, cream, copper, mocha, latte and cream. I wanted to make a double blanket for the bed in my motorhome and cast on 240 stitches. It has taken me two months to make and has been a real pleasure. I loved the edging and used your coulours except for row four where I used spice as this was my predominent colour. Thank you from Pat x

Melissa B

Hi Lucy,
I'm about to start on the last round and have read though the comments and am now confused because there is mention of the instructions being incorrect.
Can you tell me if your instructions are correct or do I need to figure out what the posters are trying to say in their comments?
Thank you for this pattern. I've enjoyed it and plan to use it to make more blankets.

Lucy

I m just about to do my final few rows and then the edging, I ve chosen different colours for this one to use up a bit of my stash, but will do this bright one next, I ve loved doing it and it looks so clever even though it was easy to make, great work Lucy, you don't realise how much pleasure your work brings to so many people.

Doe

Hi Lucy, thank you for the amazing blanket pattern. I've just finished it and I'm thrilled. You are really inspirational. Thanks again

Helena

Love the colours and thanks for the edging. I am using it on a play blanket. Always find some inspiration on your site!!

kirsty roper

Hi I have just finished the blanket and starting on the border. My blanket is 110 by 165 however I do not have enough copper why?????

Yvonne

Hi Lucy. Thank you for that wonderful colored cosy blanket. It's almost finished. But just like Diana I noticed that you used different sizes for the edging. As I did the blanket with no 4 I was wondering which size should I use for the edging?
Thank you for chairing al you beautiful creations with us.
