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 have made these using 'plarn' that is using yarn made from plastic bags. Originally I used them as Christmas tree decorations but my daughter pinched some of them and uses them as coasters for drinks.
Ps how to make plarn? Consult youtube.

Sorry I'm late to the party, but I have just discovered this fantastic tutorial! Started immediately on a snowflake garland. Many Thanks!
(Ps. I expect you'll have some real snowflakes soon in the North East! Scotland first then the North East always!)

Noemi Domingo

thanks from Spain :-))
the snow flake will be a christmas gift to my nieces, because I want them to value hand made creations... love can be found also in little things

Is there an "idiot guide" to crochet? I can knit but don't know crochet and would love to be able to do the snowflakes. Many thanks.

Gaynor Roberts

I really want to make one of these but am a complete crochet beginner - can you recommend any online tutorials to get me to this point?!? Thanks so much xx

Thanks for sharing. I was looking for a snowflake pattern to put on some slippers I was crocheting. I did the first and third round to make a smaller snowflake but the pattern and pictures you had written out were so easy to follow. :)

Jennifer Toal

Love them Lucy!!! Just made one and as usual your instructions are easy and perfect to follow. Hope to make lots more and thinking of adding them to Chirstmas presents as little tags that can then be hung on the tree....sooooo pretty!! Thanks for all the time you take to share your ideas with others. X

Lovely, Poundland have a white with a little sparkle yarn. I think it was buy 2 get one free. I was looking for an excuse to buy it.

Hi Lucy,
I have been following your blog for some time now (planning to start on my own hexagon blanket nest week).

I work for Age Cymru (that means Age Wales) in Cardiff - we have a Keep Warm This Winter campaign every year to raise money to raise awareness of the issues that older people face during the winter. This year, staff and volunteers were asked to make Christmas tree decorations out of wool to publicise the campaign. I contributed some snowflakes and stars from your patterns and wow, what a reaction!

I am pleased to tell you that I have been asked to send the links to your patterns to one of our corporate supporters because some of their staff want to learn how to make the decorations. It looks as if I will be going over there to give them some crochet lessons.

I would like to be able to send you a picture of the decorated tree sometime in December, as you were the inspiration for so many of the decorations. Please can you let me know if this is possible.

Thanks,
Kathy

Liz

Thank you so much for the visual tutorial! Our church craft group has so enjoyed making these. The instructions are clear and the pictures help so much.

Hilde

Thanks for the patter! I used it last year for christmas cards. Today I made a Dutch translation and posted it on my blog. I hope that's ok.

Cecilia

Thank you for posting this snowflake, it is so delicate!, ya lo hice!

Kelly Walmsley

I block snowflakes by saturating in a solution of 1/2 water, 1/2 white glue, squeezing out the excess gently and pinning inside the outside loops to corrugated cardboard covered with a towel.

Hia Lucy, I'm really glad I've discovered your blog, I just wish I had two or three years ago when I was first trying to learn crochet. I first heard about your blog on Emma's Dolly Doulton blog. I eventually found your blog when I searched for a multi layer flower pattern. Previously I couldn't work out how to make the petal layers off-set. I immediately set about and made a flower (in cream 4 ply cotton to add to my recently completed summer scarf) even though it was approaching midnight. I was delighted to find your snowflake pattern; After Christmas I made a special trip to a lovely wool Shop in Clitheroe, to get a pattern for the lovely snowflakes displayed in the window (when the Shop was closed) - you can imagine my disappointment to learn that they had been bought from Ikea!
I hope to make lots of them in time for Christmas.
By the way, I really enjoyed reading about your recent visit to Arnside. We were there last week, it's only a short drive from our Caravan in Kirkby Lonsdale. Scuse the rambling!

Thank you, lovely and easy to crochet! Couldn´t stop for making just one or few, but used whole white mohair yarn for these. =)

Evelyn Starfishy

Thank you for the instructions! I made snowflake garlands and hung them with paper lanterns for a winter party decoration - it came out so beautiful! I posted about it on my blog at www.scrappyhappystarfishy.blogspot and linked back to your site for the instructions! Very pretty!
