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

Thank you so much for your instructions, so beautifully detailed and explained, I'm a very new crochet lover but I can easily follow this. You've put a lot of work into it and I wanted you to know it's very appreciated.


Thank you this was very useful!


Hi I'm new to the site (and crochet) and I love it thanks, I'm attempting your basket liner starting with flat circle but by row 7 it's going curly? I have the correct number of stitches any suggestions?


Love your site. Have said "thank you" by buying you a coffee! And voted for you in the awards this week. Inspirational!

I love your posts. All the way from South Africa. You learn me a lot how to crochet things. Well done


Hi Lucy I am making a cushion cover using flat circle pattern but it is not flat. I have done 20 rows and it is as if there is a whole extra segment in the pattern. It has happened for both sides and the same thing happened to my sister when she did it. Will it flatten out when the two sides are crocheted together around the cushion or is there a mistake in the pattern? I love this blog!

I am from India. I tried it and it turned so beautiful. I even made a tail at the end as birds have tail and with tail it turned out very fantabulous. U r photo tutorials are great. I made one for me and now making one for my sister. U r simply marvelous lucy. God bless u for showing such great works for free.

Thank you for sharing with us!I am working the circle as you explain, but it starts wave. i would appreciate any idea! Thank you!

I am following the order of increases for each round but my circle is starting to wave. I've tried adding more increases and also decreasing. Any ideas would be much appreciated! Thank you

I'm new to crocheting but I think I'm ready to try making something in a circle. Your cushion is so very pretty. Hope I'll be able to make one soon. Question - did I miss the size of the hook and the weight of the yarn. Thanks.


Thank you for your advice, I've just cracked the circle!


I've spent hours, literally, trying to start this up but my foundation 11 stitches do not look like yours. Am left handed would this make a difference?


Thank you very much for this tutorial, I really needed it. I will use it to make a circular vest in single colour :) Best wishes from Latvia


Hi I have a question, I have some cotton I want to make into a bag using this circle method but it always bunches up, so it looks like there are too many stitches, what am I doing wrong do you have any suggestions?
