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

Attic 24 - just an amazing place to go when everything around you gets too much.
The colours, patterns, ideas and photographs are a total joy !
Thank you Lucy - you inspire me so much.

Hi Lucy,
I want to use this pattern as a blanket, could you give me ideas how to make it flat?

Sian Thomas

i love this and would like to get started, could you tell me how much wool is used in this version please?

Robin Summers

I have been just drooling to do a neck cosy using your pattern. The colors are just perfect and I know it will be just awesome with my coat since I hate to have the wind blowing up inside my hood leaving my neck and ears cold. Thanks as usual for your time and talent that you so unselfishly share with all of us. I just adore your blog and the colors that swirl all around you and your world. Lots of love from across the pond. xxxx

I just love this Cosy. Every time I try to order the yarn they are out of one of the colors and since I live across the "pond" I want to make my shipping count. I will keep pursuing until I get all the colors. The colors are fabulous that you used.
Can you tell me how many skeins you used? And how many different colors? Lucy, you are so talented:) Thank YOU

I am always so inspired by your projects, Lucy. Always loving the colours, the patterns, and of course, the joy that exudes from you as you share your hooky colours with us. :)

I do have a question about your foundation chain. It appears to be a more substantial foundation than just a series of chain stitches. It appear to be a series of single crochet stitches along a length of yarn, but I worry that I mightn't be right. I have perused YouTube and other sources for an idea of what it is you might be doing, but I am wondering...

Is there a tutorial available for what you used as your foundation in this project? Is this the way you begin most of your projects?

Thanks in advance, and thanks for being such an inspiration. :)

I´m glad to send you a big hug for let us have a smile in our faces when we read your stories and see your amazing photos. Mary- Barcelona.

Heidi-

This happened to me, too. I believe it is because the 2 chains between each cluster makes the warmer stretch out too much. It may just be me (Lucy IS more experienced and has WONDERFUL patterns, and her neck warmer turned out great, of course!), but because I didn't want my neck warmer/bag to turn into a trapezoid, I decided to start only doing 1 chain between the clusters. It has worked for me!

Emmy

Thanks Lucy!

I will actually be using it to make a bag out of "plarn"- plastic bag yarn. I'll crochet the "neck warmer" and then sew up the bottom and add a flap and handles. Hopefully it works out. ;) I just love the way th stitching looks in this pattern, and since I'm hear in sunny Southeastern USA, we don't have tons of use for cozy neckwarmers, if you know what I mean :)

Marcia

Lucy, adoro seus trabalhos. Beijos.

Eve

I'm making this at the moment and I've never used so many colours for a piece! I love it!

PLEASE put this on Ravelry! I want to add it to my projects and upload pics and generally brag about how awesome a pattern AND tutorial this is! Xx

Happy Mother's Day, Lucy, your dreams are coming true each day as you nurture your young family into life. So lovely of you to share it with us.

This neckwarmer looks delightfully easy and so beautiful in the pattern that even with only one color, a stunning one with shades, could become a stunner ~!~ I have a superwash merino wool 50gm hank which might be very pretty, in its own subtle way--You have-once again-given me lots to think about as I travel my way thru this delightful life, of which your blog has become a part.

Lori

Thank you Lucy..you are amazing! :)

Hello Lucy. I am new to crochet, but am giving this a go. I must be doing something wrong, because with each row my work is getting wider. Please could you have a think and let me know what I am doing wrong?

Thank you.

Beryl Nesbitt

Just in time for us in Australia, our winter (such as it is!!) is due anytime from now.One of these neck warmers will keep the sea winds away on my morning walks. Thanks again for your great ideas.

Kate

I looooove it!

elisa

This is superduper......another one for my to hook list....do you think this stitch would be strong enough if I used cotton aran for a bag? Thanks Elisa xx

ramthuntm11

Thank you again Lucy for a great pattern...I love you blog as I've said before...my daughter will love it:-)

Joanne Warburton

Evie Richardson

Just gorgeous Lucy! It's very 'you'. :)

Janet Goff

This is awesome! Such a smart way to use my leftover cotton scraps. So well written and easy to follow. The pictures are wonderful too! Thank you for sharing the pattern.

Tory

Can I just say, your entire website is so so so useful and just full of lovely ideas. So inspirational! ah I go crazy with creativity when I come on haha. Thankyou for sharing your patterns, ideas etc etc. :)

Linda Pawlak

Lucy,
Thank you so MUCH! It is because of you that I have rediscovered my love of crochet. I had gotten a large box of yarn on Freecycle. Unfortunately none of it was labeled as to fiber content, etc. and I hesitated to use it for making gifts. But, since this neck warmer will be all MINE, I am able to use a lot of the partial unidentified skeins. I am having such fun playing with the colors. They are not all my favorite colorss, but they were free and will work wonderfully to keep me warm...so it is all good! And though not my favorite colors (I prefer your color lines) it is still coming out really cute.

Thank you again for all you do, for all of us!
