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 just started one of these tonight and I can't wait to see it finished. I'm using scraps of leftover pink skeins :) different textures, colors, yarns, and fibers. Thank you so much for the great tutorial! :)


I paid $7.50 USD for this pattern several years ago. I should have waited.



I found this on Deramores which says it's Aran weight not DK, will this do?

Is there any way to read the answers you give to previous comments as there are a few I would like to know the answer to but don't want to keep bugging you! I always find the Q&A in the comments section really helpful on blogs. Thanks!

Mia Robbins

Hi Lucy, can you tell me how much yarn you used for this bag pls? Thks! Mia x


How many balls of wool would I need to make this bag. Would 17 100 balls of DK (one in each different colour) be enough?
Many thanks

Lovely bag!! Nice tutorial.
Looking forward for such nice bags patterns on your blog.

Hi Lucy!
Thanks so much for this tutorial! I have really enjoyed the simplicity and repetition of this pattern and it was so easy to finish. Wish there was an easier way to sew ends in though :-)
Thanks also for the link to the cute little flowers!!

Looking for something to make ..... Nothing grabbed me , then I saw your bag . I've lots of scraps of wool . So thank you for the inspiration . Can't wait to get started xxx


Beautiful bag, I think I will attemp it because I can see a great use for it, such as carrying my paints back and forth to school in a very colorful way. I am a grandma who taught herself to crochet so I can see myself having trouble following the instructions but I will find a way to make it.

Mandy Long

Thanks so much for the pattern - I can't wait to get started. I'm hoping that acrylic yarn will work OK as I have loads left from the rainbow blanket that I made. You are AWESOME!!

 Liz Boston

Thanks so much for the pattern! Just one question...do you sew the handles on with yarn or thread?


Lucy I LoVE your patterns, they always turn out perfect and your tutorials are the best there are! Have just made this bag up out of some leftover bits of Stylecraft and even with wacky colours it looks so fab! Thanks so much for sharing all your creative talents with us. (My bag came out a bit stretchy with the acrylic DK though so I might make a lining for it, if I do I'll put a how-to up and link back here if that's OK).

I absolutely love this bag!! Thank you for your beautiful pictures, very easy to follow instructions, and fun projects :) I just finished my bag and I absolutely LOVE it!!!


Thank you for another fabulous project! I made a version of it for my Mum for Mother's Day and she LOVES it! Here is a link to a photo of it http://instagram.com/p/mH8ygSNQxT/ hope you like it too!
