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'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!

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.

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!

Evie Richardson

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.
