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 am a big fan of you, Lucy... You make really great things and reading and seeing your colorful photos on your blog makes me so happy!
Now I'm busy with the hexagons ;o)
Your tutorial is wonderful and with such GREAT tips!
Thank you very much for sharing...


I feel so silly, I have 3 hexagon's completed (yah for me)! The circle part of the motif is not laying totally flat, is this alright? I am trying to do the attach as you go method and have a question. Can I do this with only 3 hexagon's done or do I need a total of 6 (one for each side) I can't picture how to keep adding on. (blush) Thanks so very much!!!

hi Lucy,
I discovered Rowan handknit DK cotton on your blog!! I have made a command (there is no Rowan in France) to make my own hexagon cover (I LOVE IT). I don't know this yarn but I've command 16 colours. How many ball of each colors had you needed??
(sorry for my laborious english!!!!)
Your blog is the better than I know, thank you very much!!!


Hi Lucy! Could you please take a look at my hexi afghan in process. Was I supposed to be attaching in strips? My poor blankie is not laying flat. Something seems to be a-miss http://www.ravelry.com/projects/squirlko/hexagon-how-to


Thank you so much for this tutorial! I've admired the beautiful hexagon afghans on flickr, but was a bit daunted by the prospect of making one.
I've just made my first hexagon while sitting in front of the computer reading this, and it was easy! I'm quite a novice at reading crochet patterns, but your instructions and photos are wonderful :)


Your crochet is awe inspiring! Thank you for sharing this, very good photos and clear directions.. I'm sure I will still have trouble but I am determined to work it out.
I'll be stopping by your blog again and browsing some more! Lovely Work!

Hi Lucy, So glad you are back Thanks soooo much for the hexagon tutorial I am ready to go but just one question did you work totally random for your colors or did you make a certain number in each color combination and then start to join them also how many balls of eash color did you use THANKS and keep brightening my days


Hi! I love this pattern and thank you for posting it. I have just started making them - my first time ever making a granny square type blanket - so excited! Can you tell me about how many little circlets I need to make before I join them to each other for the blanket? I want to make them all first then join them together. Thanks!


Hello Lucy, just commented on your last post but I have a question about the yarn you used for the hexagon blanket. How many yards is the 50gr skein you used?
I am using a 110gr skein that is 250 meters long. I have the feeling that the blanket will turn out quite heavy.. I hope I am wrong..

Here is the blanket again..

Thanks in advance for your time!

I love your hexagons am already on the way to creating a beautiful lap rug for charity. However the sides look fine kind of zig zag but the ends tend to stick out a bit because there is more of the hexagon showing if you know what I mean. Do you do some kind of edging or just leave it as it is.


I love your pattern, can't wait to get started, thank you so much for sharing

Oh WOW! Thank you so much! I'm thrilled to have stumbled upon your blog. I've always been too daunted and confused by regular crochet patterns. Your instuctions and photos are brilliant. I made my first hexagon straight away.

i have just finished this wonderful blanket in girl baby colors. i wanted to border it and didn't know how to do the shell edge with all the turns. can you point me to any instructions or tutorials. i am a knitter but your blanket has put me on the hook. thanks,sherriet


Hi! I started a hexagon blanket awhile ago and then found your pattern and started over. the edging is much more even with your hexagons. I want the edge on the sides to be even though and was wondering if you could tell me how to do half of one of these hexagons...? It would be much appreciated!
