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. I've been crocheting this blanket for a loooong time but I seem to be going wrong somewhere and it keeps growing! I've sorted out out my width issues a couple of times by dropping a few judicious stitches (hoping the border will sort the wonky edges!). I've checked back though the pattern, I'm certain I'm dropping that extra stitch at the end of the first single trebles row but it still grows arghhhhh! Please could you provide me with a stitch count for each row of the four row repeat? Then I can pinpoint the row which I'm doing wrong and hopefully sort!


The detail of information you supply and the clarity of your instruction photos is simply amazing! You are very talented and a true teacher at heart! Thank you so very much for supplying this photo tutorial and instructions. I very much look forward to attempting this pattern.


I love your patterns. Finished the hydrangea and have the coast blanket waiting. I'm doing the borders on the cosy and have run out of the copper yarn. Nearly got there but only 1/2 way through the last side. Can you suggest another border that doesnt use as much yarn? I don't want to order more for just this side.

I just found this pattern on the all free crochet site and love it. I did the many stripe granny pattern blanket last year as a toddler size. It is my favorite of many I've made. I'm looking forward to trying this pattern, even if I don't use the many colors again.


I just finished this beautiful blanket for my sister. Just have to put on the edging. Thanks for your hard work in posting this pattern for us.

How many stitches across if I only have a 6 skeins color pack?

I don't know how to figure it out so that I can make a lap throw. I don't know if I have enough without a twin size blanket.

Hello Lucy,
Thank you so much for this lovely pattern using the wonderful colours of Stylecraft
Special DK.
I have only recently found your web page and blog and I am enjoying it so much.
I used the colours of the hydrangea pack and I have been complimented on the finished result.
My blanket came out larger as I never thought that the edging would add to the dimensions and I am a loose crocheter.
I have enjoyed every moment of making this blanket and I love reading your blog, especially as I live near Skipton, and I also enjoyed Holidaying in Dorset this year.

An absolutely wonderful pattern so hope I will be able to do it. To show how to make it on internet is marvelous and so very great to go step by step. Thank you 😊 so much for sharing.


Teresa, the following information is very clearly written in the instructions given.

"..... It's fine to reduce your starting chain to achieve the correct size, just remember to make your starting chain a multiple of 3....... "

".......If you wish to make the blanket bigger ie to fit a double / king size bed, you will need to increase the number of stitches in your starting chain.....the starting chain should always be a multiple of 3. You will also need to purchase extra yarn if you make a bigger size."


I love this blanket! I want to make it for a rainbow baby. Can you advise me on how to reduce the size?

Wonderful Instructions. Love The Colours in This Blanket too


Love this pattern, just wish there was an easy "print friendly" button.


I love this pattern and will try it.

Lise Sproson

Do you have a blanket like this for sale? Love the texture and colours!


Love this - going to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration and detailed instructions.


Wow, thank you for such a detailed pattern! I'm starting a temperature blanket for each of my 4 kids, soon to be 5. They will have a range of 16 colors, each color representing a 3 degree temp shift so it will detail the high and low temperature of the first month of their life. Each blanket will be different since they were all born in different seasons. This is my new favorite pattern! So simple yet looks beautifully complex when you add all the different colors. I really appreciate your generosity in giving this to us free of cost. God bless you as you create!

Hello . I'm from Australia. Do you have a kit and pattern for this blanket. I love it. My mum is recovering from bowel cancer treatment at 81. My dad has just been put into care because of his delta and this would be perfect project for her.
My email is
I'd love to her from you ..for further details on how and when etc..
Thank you
Deb Vallance


Can you post a picture of your dilemma. Ive done 2 of these but don't understand the question.


Manta muito linda. Parabéns!


Thank you for the easy to follow pictorial and written directions. My daughter is expecting a baby in November. I plan on making your blanket into a baby blanket in Aqua, Coral, White, yellow and Lime Green. I will search through your website for a border that will compliment the pattern.
The blanket is easy, elegant, and classy. I believe this pattern would be beautiful in white or pastels too. This will be my, "go to" pattern for baby blankets!

Megan Joelle

Thank so much for the pattern Lucy! This is the first blanket I've attempt to crochet and your instructions made it possible to follow the pattern easily :D It's been heaps of fun using all the different coloured yarns in my stash! https://thegirlthatstitches.blogspot.com.au/2017/06/a-golden-thread.html

What an absolutely beautiful afghan! I just love the pattern and color choices! I would love to buy the attic bucket of colors that you show . I live in Los Angeles California and Honolulu Hawaii and would love to know where I can buy this bucket of colors. The way you picture and describe your pattern is just great! I think it is the best example of pattern writing and illustration I have ever seen. Congratulations!!! Now back to my question, where can I buy this Attic24 cosy pack yarn? Margot


I love this pattern!! I would like to know if I can sell what I make using this pattern? I will of course provide a link back to your pattern and give you credit.
