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

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.

Terrific turorial! Thanks for helping me out since I'm a beginner at crochet.


This is perfect! Thanks so much for posting it. Merry Christmas!

Lisa Elbertsen

Thank you!!!! You just made my Christmas!


Thanks so much for creating this tutorial! I can follow short-hand patterns fairly well, but I love having the step-by-step pictures. Wonderful!


Woooow! What a nice and simple pattern. I can't find a easy pattern in Dutch. Thank you very much for sharing. :)

So nice to revisit this pattern this year...I love the finishing touch of the stem and vein up the middle...you are SO good at simple but effective patterns!


Love it, makes great presents!

Thank you so much for this tutorial Lucy. I was kind of on the right track with mine, but they really didn't look anything like holly leaves in the end. But you have set me straight! I have added three beautiful holly leaves to my Christmas yarn bomb in the village this morning, such a happy thing to do :)


I'm afraid I just can't work out how to make the prickle! Pulling the thread 'through the chain on my hook' isn't clear to me. Are there any other tips you can share on this? Thank you - and thanks for the tutorial.

Thanks for sharing, I am not a big crochetwonder but I did manage to make them. They are so cute!!!


Thank you very much for the pattern and tutorial!


Большое спасибо! Обязательно свяжу на свою рождественскую гирлянду!


Thanks! Knew I could trust you when looking for holly patterns :-)
These are perfect!


Love these! I would like to link your pattern from my blog: cherishables-handcrafts.blogspot.com as part of my Christmas Countdown beginning 12/1/12. Thanks!


What about the berries???


Sorry I forgot to mention how useful it is to have the tutorial but more importantly to have the instructions separately - bliss. As someone who does not work I really appreciate free patterns but often they are so full of pics I have to be at my computer to crochet and I do like to crochet whilst watching telly.

Thank you so much for this pattern. My charity project for the year was to make Remembrance Day poppies for the Royal British Legion and I made lots but the leaf just wasn't 'spikey' like the paper poppies. I shall do some more for next year and use your pattern. (I sold all I made and I am thrilled to be able to give all proceeds of £238.60 to the poppy appeal). I have also made your 'frilly' cushion and it gets lots of admiring comments so thanks for that as well. Mags


As a semi-novice crocheter, I REALLY appreciate your posts, your blog and your tutorials. This one is exceptional! And just when I was needing to make holly leaves for a baby hat I'm making! Thank you soooo much for taking the time to share your expertise with us.
