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.

Wowsers!! I'm very much a total novice at crochet but my daughter is named Holly so I'm a sucker for anything related! I think I may just about manage this, your tute looks so nice to follow. I'll let you know if I manage it!


as always it is amazing how you explain!!
I'm going to try this evening, so easy it seems (I'll tell you tomorrow if this worked with me!!)

Right now I'm hooking my first project (SUMMER GARDEN GRANNY BLANKET), perhaps a little ambitious for a begginer, but I'm getting on quite well. The only problem is, as I began to hook only two weeks ago (with a few days before hooking some samples), the little squares made lately are a little bit bigger than the firsts, I suppose I'm hooking less tight.

How can I manage to chochet them all together?????????(Didn't start with the as-you-go joining method, too much for the first time)

Again, sorry for my English. Wish you can understand me well.
Have a nice weekend!!

I've been looking for a pretty holly pattern to make some for my little niece Holly's stocking, and these are perfect. Thank you very much.


Thanks so much for the great, easy to follow tutorial! I'm not a crocheter/hooker??? but made beautiful holly.


Lucy, these little leaves are adorable and so perfectly detailed! I'm amazed that you come up with these little bits of goodness with three Little People running around. : )


Beautiful !!
thanks for sharing! :)


Egads! Mine went a bit winky wonky but the pattern is v straightforward and not tricksy. User error I think! Thanks for the inspiration!


Thank you for this nice tutorial!
Like for of all them, thank you:)


Beautifully explained. Thank you! I can now decorate a Christmas stocking. The photos help so much and so does the pattern written out in its shortform once the pattern has been understood!
I love Christmas crochet!


I live in Alaska and look forward to adding Jolly Holly to my life. Thank you for a beautiful calming site of refreshment.


You just got Pinned by someone -- when I saw this, I had to come get the pattern! I love holly and your crocheted leaves are exactly the right style to suit me: pointy in all the right places indeed! Thanks! I see Christmas napkin rings in the future!

Love love this thank you so much for such an excellent holly leaf. I don't suppose you'd put your brilliant pattern creating mind to a ponisettia could you? I've just tried one based on your may rose and this leaf pattern but have ended up with the most messy red flower ever!! Help!




at last a holly leaf pattern I understand thank you

Jacky Wilkie

Best holly leaf by far. Lovely clear photos. Happy christmas .

Una Beaumont

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
It's an awesome pattern and you explain it so well! My holly leaves are going to make such a good effect to my Christmas gift cards!
Thank you again!


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.

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


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.


What about the berries???


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!


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


Большое спасибо! Обязательно свяжу на свою рождественскую гирлянду!


Thank you very much for the pattern and tutorial!
