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

Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to give it a try, today hopefully.


Hi Lucy, luckily I had picked up some white wool in the charity shop this afternoon - so here goes. Many thanks! Gillie

The before and after are simply amazing.... Did you block your hexagons as well?


looking forward to making these, thanks for the tutorial x


Thanks so much, this is just what I was looking for. I can see connecting the stars with a chain stitch and using it as a garland on a Christmas tree.


I have been making the stars that you shared about in one of your previous posts, I am working on the purse pattern you shared and now I will definitely be making bunches of snowflakes! Thanks for sharing this!


many thanks for making this rainy dull day so much brighter


Rushing off to try one now!xx


Just finished my first snowflake and it turned out beautifully... thanks so much for the easy to understand pattern! I will post pics on flickr when I'm done starching.

Aren't these wonderful? I have made 8 of them and so love them! Question about the stiffener....it's not going to flake off of the snowflake, is it? I remember that my mom and grandmom used some sort of starch and while it did the job, it flaked off. Of course this was many, many years ago! Anyway, hope to make tons of these snowflakes! Thanks ever so much for all the work you do!


Thank you so much for the how-to -- these are beautiful! And thank you also for the tips on starching. I was only wondering yesterday if it was even possible to buy starch in this day and age. Really looking forward to starching my stars!

I just made one! yay it looks so pretty. will post pics on flickr when i have starched etc. off to make some more hehe!


Thanks for posting the tips! I just printed the original pattern a few days ago so I am thrilled to see you posting it on your site. I just learned to crochet so I am sure your tips will come in handy!! Thanks for keeping your blog so lively; you are always such a joy to visit.


Thanks for posting this. I've just made one and absolutely love it. I can see a garland of snowflakes in the making...


Thank you, Lucy. I've crocheted my first Granny Afghan thanks to your easy-to-understand pattern and instrux. Now, I'm ready to try these snowflakes :) Got some pretty sparkly-white Wool-Ease yarn from Lion Brand. Should be smashing!
Toodles and hope all is well in your part of the world - I sent Prince Charles to check on you all up there in the North ;) (just kidding)


This tutorial is fab! I'm useless with crochet terminology and I couldn't follow instructions if my life depended on it (which is probably why my 1st attempt became a hexagon!) but I've just made my 1st snowflake and it's great! Ta Lucy :-)


Just gave this a whirl, really great pattern. Very simple to follow. Thanks! Gonna make a few to make a Xmas garland!


Thank you for your simple instructions. I've just made one of these and it took me just 5 minutes. I'm definately going to make more!


I am becoming a bit of a groupie having already made your cute birdies and twinkle stars, however I can't resist the snowflakes.Yummy and lovely , how do you feel about things you have given patterns for being sold?


alguien me ayuda a traducirlo al español??? voy a volverme loquita!!! Gracias por adelantado!!!!

Stephanie J.

So pretty, and such wonderful instructions. Thank you!

This is so nice!!! Thank you for the instructions made dozens of those cuties.


Thank you so much for posting this tutorial. I am a beginner and this was so easy to follow.


I love these snowflakes.... I have made a couple already and really ready to go to town. I love your blog. Thanks for sharing!
