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

Thank you so much for this! I love your beautiful work, and your blog.


Thank you! Makes so much sense, but so, so helpful to have it laid out so explicitly in words and pictures. It's good of you to take the time to do this.


Thank you, although when I do traditional grannies, I like to join them as I do the last round, but with solid grannies, like for the Babette Blanket I'm doing, this just might work!!! So far, whatever I have done just was ugly!!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to do this tutorial, it's a great help!!!

A million and one thank yous for taking the time to do this! You have done a wonderful job with the pictures but with the explanation as well which with many crochet books/blogs are not clearly outlined as you have done here. I hope you continue to do this as well as share some of your patterns. Fabulous Job!



Thankyou.A great tutorial -it makes sense. Cherrie


Awesome! Now I don't feel so overwhelmed when I see that stack of squares waiting joining...this looks utterly easy and do-able with all the beautiful photos! Thanks again, you continue to amaze me with your willingness to share!


Nice, nice, nice I love your description Fantastic I will use it the next time I do some granny work:) Again I love your site I wish I lived closer just to visit your little part of the world. Tata for now...


Sweet! I've always wondered about how to do this. I love your tutorials and I love the fact that you include so many pictures. It really helps me to *see* what's going on.

thanks so much for that it's a great help.


After 30 years (i started real young!!!) of sewing Granny Squares together in a cloud of red mist you are officially MY HERO!

I gonna do a couple of squares right now just so I can have a go, you've made it sound so simple!

Thanks ever so.


Thanks you so much for that. You have explained it so well.


Great photography Lucy, and very easy to follow along with. Thank you.


Thanks Lucy, the above comments echo my sentiments too! No excuse not to join my Grannies now!! Have a good weekend, love Sal x


Oooh, lovely ~ thank you so much for posting this tutorial, Lucy. It all makes absolute sense to me LOL

Oh, thank you, Lucy! What a wonderful tutorial! I've been wanting to make something with Grannies for so long but dreaded sewing them together! I even have a basket of blocks I was going to toss after coming to the conclusion that I would never ever ever not even if trapped on a deserted island alone with them actually sew them together. Never. I'm so glad I didn't toss them!! Thank you!


Thanks Lucy - you did a wonderful job explaining this. I am a visual learner so the pictures were wonderful. It is so much easier to understand a concept when there are plenty of pictures - you really out did yourself on this tutorial.


Thanks Lucy....happy grannies...I prefer to crochet them together rather than sew. Really good pictures.


Delightfully explained and so neat, cannot wait to have a pile of grannies ready to try out your method. Quick sidenote, have you noticed how the second to last picture in this post resembles a grannysquare swastika???


This tutorial looks explained so well. As I'm on hex's now, and not granny squares, I won't be able to try it right now. Unless you could put hex's together that way also? If I went ahead and made the hex's all the way done, and then used this method to join them? Think it would work? I'm trying to figure out to block hex's, and thought it would be nice to block the whole hex, rather than just the circle centers. What do you think?


Thank you Lucy! Great tutorial.

I have a question though. Do you block your squares before you join them or after? Does it make any difference?



Lucy, thank you very very much for share us your ideas!!... I love your works, your photos and your blog... I'm from México... Greetings!!
Thanks again!!

sylvia castillo

sylvia castillo

It's me again, if you can make a book it will be very good for us I would like to buy it with all the pictures and instruction, just like you have it here in your blog, I am from Mexico too and I loved, loved to crochet. And I want to learn more and more. God Bless you.


finally! someone has posted instructions i understand! i love this website, and thank you so much for this!!


I have been struggling with joining grannies the last few days, not happy with anyway I sew it. This is wonderful and I love the pictorial. Thanks so much for your help. I came here to see the awesome redo on your chair, glad I found your blog.
