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

Thanking you so much this the jolly holly pattern has boosted my confidence. I have a disability and found this pattern a joy to follow ;0)

Thanking you again

Dorothy Via

Perfect! Just the tight size and shape! Thanks for posting the US terms. Very helpful. I'm putting these on Christmas hats I make to donate for preemies.

Kath Woodward

I make lots of Christmas novelties for charity every year including mini Christmas puddings and have never been really successful in making leaves to top them with.Thank you so much for the perfect holly leaf.

Maria McCabe

do you have any advice for a quick holly berry?

Karin  Brown

Thank you, this was just the thing I was looking for. A nice holly leaf.....☺


Thank you so much for taking the time to show us this pattern. I'm using them to decorate a Christmas pudding tea cosy and it's perfect. I struggle to follow crochet patterns in books but you've made it really easy to follow.

Hi Lucy. I hope you don't mind me asking: I wondered if you would be able to make me some of these leaves so my daughter can use them in her greetings cards. How much would your fee be. I look forwards very much to hearing from you. Many thanks.
Elaine (Truby) 😄


This is one of the clearest tutorials I've ever seen. Excellent work Lucy. Thankyou for making my "crochet life" a little easier at this otherwise hectic time of year. Sure my mum will love the holly card I'm making her. Merry Christmas to you and I look forward to having a good study of your other work come the New Year.


I'm using these to embellish yet another Christmas stocking! Thank you - these are the easiest and best looking leaves for which I've been able to find instruction!


its that time again!
thank you for these clear instructions. its my first crochet project in a long time and i forgot how fun it is. it would not have been nearly as fun without a good teacher. great pattern too. thanks again for sharing

Loved the holly leaves. I will put them on soda can cozies with white or red background. Thank you so much for sharing.


Great pattern, very easy to understand and turned out exactly as pictured. Thanks these will look very nice on my tree this year :-)


It seems every time I need a pattern, I end up in your Attic. Great things!


Thanks for posting these! I only started to crochet two days ago and your instructions are so simple to follow! You're very talented.


Thank you so much! You are wonderful. The relatives will be receiving crocheted Holly decorations this year :D

Best ever holly pattern. Thanks for posting it.


They are beautiful

Dee Parsons

Wow, you are an amazing creative lady....well done....I love crochet but I am a bit of a pattern girl....but you are very inspiring!!!

Well done...



Thanks again for another great pattern! I just made two of them for my hat. They come out really big when you use worsted yarn, LOL!


Two years later this tutorial is still great! Thank you.


Thanks for sharing this fab pattern. It is a triumph!


Thank you so much for the small holly leaf pattern ideal for my knitted mince pies for the children's Christmas song at pre school.
