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

Would love some help please- I have made 120 hex and worked the join as you go ( wonderful instructions from you- thank you ) but now not sure how to get finished shape correct. I am sure I need more hex( plenty of scrap yarn in my hoardings!) would appreciate you pointing me in the right direction please. This rug has been my solace during the last few months and even though we are nearing summer I would like to get it finished. I do wish I had a mathmatical brain and more computer skills. Thanking you. HC


Absolutely stunning!!! Thank you for sharing!!! I love this pattern and was looking for a new project and know this is perfect to keep me occupied for a while. I was just wondering if you had a diagram layout of the color pattern that you used for this on? I want to end up with a finished product with the same color layout. I can try to guess from the first picture, but I'm sure to mess something up. I'm assuming there are multiple hexagons using the same color pattern, but I can't really tell what they are and how they lay out together to form a whole. A top view picture(s) would also be helpful, in addition to the diagram. I live in the U.S. and I'm going to have to substitute a different brand of yarn and figure out color matches. Would you happen to have color representations of the 16 colors you used? Any help would be MUCH appreciated. I'm anxious to get started.

I love all of the different colors! Your work is wonderful.


Thank you so much for the tutorial Lucy! I just finished my lap blanket, just in time too - my baby's 'due date' is today!

Hi there! Many thanks for the instructions for making and joining the hexagonals for my lovely wool blanket. Now i've finished doing the joining I'm wondering how to edge off the blanket to make it have a straight edge finish. If you can help I'd be delighted

Here is how you make a half hexagon. It is in Danish but you can easy use the good Pictures.
Click on the link to Adobe. Good luck to all of you, and have a nice day and summer :-)

Thank you so much Lucy.


Hi Lucy, I'm a first time crocheter, and I found your hexagons easy to do, thanks for taking the time to explain everything so well👍. I' have made 61 hexagons thus far and worked out I need about 300 in total to use as a throw for. Queen size bed. Next I'm going to try joining as you go along! Thank you for the inspiration! Would love to send you a pic when it's done.

I have finished my hexagon afghan. It is beautiful. The pattern was so easy to follow. Thank you very much. I do have one question. Do you have a pattern for a half hexagon, that I could use to fill in the top and bottom edge. I have been fiddling with my own pattern, but it just doesn't work. Can you help? Would really appreciate it.


Hello ladies, please I need to know the patterns for making a square around these hexagons I.e hexagons inside squares!!!

Appreciate your help



Rounded up all my odds and ends of dk yarn today and started on some solid colour hexagons, no order to colours, just picking one out and making the hexagon. Joining as I go. hopefully I will get a good deal of it done over the school holidays before classes start up again in 2 weeks


Hi can you go a u tube toto rial please

I have a question about round 5. Not sure what to do where you say chain 2 THEN IN THE SAME CHAIN LOOP 3....not sure what to do there. Sorry, would appreciate some help :).

Thank you very much for sharing your talent and expertise. Also, thank you for including American stitches as well as the English. How many hexagons did you use to finish your blanket and what is the size of the blanket?


this is gorgeous and can't wait to give it a try.. just curious as to how many balls of each colour you needed to complete the blanket? also, what was the finished size of it? thanks!

Donna B.

Thank you!! 😁 I searched and searched for a hexagon pattern that worked for me!! I am working on a turtle infant photo prop for my great-nephew that is due soon. This pattern is so easy to follow! I am making them all one color and will attach with a darker shade. Again, thank you!

barbara burdick

I think hexagons are much more interesting than squares.God created the earth, and all its beauty in six days, and to me they are a reflection of that.It's been awhile since Ive made one tho.Thank you for sharing them with me! Bb

Mary Spicer

Thank you sooooo much! I have tried hexagon patterns before, none have worked. i followed your instructions and it worked out so well. i have already started on the 2nd one and we'll be making many more for a table topper. thank you so much for posting this.


Could you let me know your pattern of colors?
Did you repeat any patterns with your individual
Hexagons? It's very beautiful and I'm hoping
to make one like it.

Isobel Swade

Searching for ages for a readable hexagon pattern. Now! here you are with wonderful photos and, above all - an easy to understand written pattern. I've been crocheting for ages but never been able to master hexagon. Really cannot thank you enough.


I have made a bag with hexagons. . should have used squares. . I am battling with finding a please handle . . the top edge of the bag has the hex points,i have used a 4ply cotton with intentions of lining the bag. . can u help with handle ideas,I tried the dcrochet, but didn't really feel that stripes completmented the bag

Lynda Coulter

This crochet is the absolute best. Love your colours and designs. Your tutorials are easy to follow. keep up the wonderful creating.


thank you so much for making this pattern I looked every for one but nun working until I used yours


Many thanks for the lovely clear instructions with pictures. I missed out the 3ch ring that you did for round 4 as I'm making it look too holey. But thanks so much for your help on hexagons, I wasn't going to make them like this as I thought they were too complicated!
