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

Hi Lucy

Love the flower ornament and have put a little reminder in the back of my brain in the "something to make on a rainy day" section. The stem and leaves are my favourite part.

lovely to see it come together, thanks.



Slip stitch into 3rd chain of initial chain-3 to join the round. Fasten off. - I'm a newbie crocheter and am finding it difficult to know where to put the hook. Would you be able to show this in a picture please? Or could you do a little tute on this aspect please? (pretty please)

Thank you so much for the inspiration :) Jenny x

Hi Abbie
I will try and do a tute on some basic crochet know-how for beginners.
As for the joining up of a round, you need to look hard at the very first chain-3 you made. count up from the bottom, and when you get to the top/third chain, thats where you stick your hook. literally, just stick your hook right through the chain. You then make a slip stitch, ie yarn over, pull the yarn through the chain, then through the stitch on your hook. To fasten off, cut the yarn leaving about a 4-6 inch tail end for darning, then yarn over and pull the yarn right through the stitch on your hook so the tail end comes right through the stitch to the front. Pull tight, and thats your fasten off.
Hope this helps!
