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 made these in single colours as it was easier! The way I joined them was to make a l o n g chain using all the colours together which looked fabulously colourful, then stitched them onto the chain using the appropriate coloured wool. I left five chain gaps between each bunting. Very pleased with the result.

Hi Lucy,

Have to comment on this & show you how your blog is so global!
I started to follow your work while I learnt to crochet (2013) when I was based in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia & my first blanket was the Granny Stripe (2014) which I found on the Knitting Room, Dublin Facebook page (I am from Cork & while on a vacation home drove to Dublin to purchase the kit).
I am currently based in Shenzhen, China (on the Hong Kong border) and on Friday I was sharing a taxi with a client visiting from New York. I took out my small crochet project to work on during the journey & she asked me about doing some bunting for her friends wedding in Ohio which is to take place in Oct (her friend is a avid crocheter). The bride sent this link to her guests to ask each of them to make one (even if they don't crochet to try!) and she plans to make it into a blanket.
It is truly a global crochet community!
Love your work!
Aimee

Dying to try this, thank you so very much for sharing. I am a UK very new crocheter, I started out in March making a granny square dolls cover for my granddaughter in some very cheap wool, then followed this with a ripple blanket, again just big enough for a car seat, then my next project was SOPHIE afghan, just on last row at the moment. This was such an immense learning curve but I have loved every minute of it, so as soon as this is completed these triangles are going to be my next adventure, perhaps in minion colours for my other granddaughter. Again thank you so much for sharing if it wasn't for people like you and Dedri Uys, I'd still be going round in circles lol xx

I've just discovered your blog, and it has inspired me to start crocheting again.I've been looking for a easy pattern.Wish me luck with this one. I can't wait to start it.

Adela Hawkins

Thank you for the great lesson. Hope to use to use in the future. I too share a love for crocheting. I'm making lots of purses and lining them.

Shirley Wake

I like your tutorials they are so easy to follow and you are very good to share your patterns please keep on with your work you produce such lovely work.
I hope that I will be able to do your patterns justice.

Lucy (a different one!)

For Kate who mentioned her beginning triangle looking like a circle:

Often when you make these sorts of things the initial round can look a total disaster, and only when you add the next few rounds can the actual shape become apparent. My initial round here looked awful, but after the second or third the triangle shape really comes through. Persevere!

Trish

Thank you so much Lucy for the easy to follow pattern for Triangles.......i have lots of small amounts of yarn left over from other projects and i intend to make bunting to hang in my summerhouse in the garden.....i have followed your blog for a long time and have made blankets/throws for around the house.

Marsha Mason

Thank you for this design. If you don't mind may I use this and expand it out to make a mermaid afghan? I will be sure and give you credit for the inspiration for it! Thank you!! :-)

Fi Daniels

These are absolutely stunning and I have made my pretty triangles now I just need some help with attaching them all together? How did you join yours? Thank you in advance. Fi x

Hi Lucy. As a total newcomer to crochet, I am so happy to have found your blog, and so enjoy reading through and seeing your lovely creations. I have just finished my first triangle by following your great picture tutorial... Just what I need until I become more experienced! I will crochet more triangles to create a colourful triangle bunting for our holiday narrowboat.... This will complement the Granny square throw that I am also in the process of making. Later I will aim to be a bit more adventurous and try out some more of your tutorials. Love your blog. Keep up the good work.

Hi Lucy,

I love these! Going to make a banner out of these for my daughter's bridal shower, thank you for sharing these!

Tash

Thanks so much for this guide. I was able to make these even as a beginner. I adapted it by starting with a magic circle instead as I just can't get my head around the chain starts but it turned out great :)

Karen Charlton

I love everything you do! Can't wait to make buntings for my grandkids. Wish I lived in England so I could go to yarndale.

Elena Fredrick

Hello Lucy, and greeting from Oklahoma USA. Your colorful granny bunting just makes me happy! I can't wait to start working on some of my own. Thanks for sharing this lovely project. I look forward to browsing around your site for I am sure you have other great projects.

Karen Hayward

I was hoping to find an easy pattern for an afghan for my daughter and son-in-law and I have!! Thank you so much!! I am making granny square afghans for my three grandsons in their favorite colors and adding the initial of their first name in contrasting color - can't wait to see them finished. I just finished 2 others. My son wanted a granny square afghan with Rastafari colors and I created a pattern for an American flag afghan for my sister who is very patriotic. Can't wait to get started on this pattern!

Johanne Doyle

Thank you for this pattern, I am making them for my forth coming wedding. We are having a back yard reception and this bunting is going to look so cute! :)I was thinking of turning it into a blanket afterwards too :)

Maureen Anderson

This is wonderful, looks so easy even for me. I have not crocheted for a long time but will be able to manage this. Will post some pictures when I ever get a few done .Thank you so much for the pattern. Hugs Maureen xxxx

Gladys Dukes

These are all so awesome and since my mother had passed I had no one to teach me how the granny squares were to be joined together so they would lay flat, much less how to connect them. I will keep checking your site to find the answers my questions or get any new ideas. Thank You so very much for sharing.

Pilar Srohhaecker

I love your work. Thanks!
