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 in the process of knitting (!) a wedding cake (Alan Dart pattern) for my daughter's wedding in June, but my roses didn't look right - not rosey, more blobby (nothing to do with the pattern, just my making up of them!) Needed inspiration. Where to find it? Attic 24 of course! Simple but effective roses. Can't wait to finish the cake now and surprise her. Thanks, Lucy, you've come up trumps again!


I'm in the process of knitting (!) a wedding cake (Alan Dart pattern) for my daughter's wedding in June, but my roses didn't look right somehow - not rosey enough. Looked for inspiration, and where did I end up? On Attic 24 of course! Simple, effective roses which are going to look great. Can't wait to finish the cake, and surprise her. Thanks Lucy, you've come up trumps again!


Hello, so glad I found you ... I guess its my love of flowers that drew me in.


I just happened to trip on your site. I am hooked. I love all the colorful crocheting you do. You inspired me to convert one of our bedrooms into my yarn room. My husband and I are just getting started. I can't wait to get it done. And I just made my first leaf ever. Thank you! I will be making more of your beautiful designs so I can put them in my yarn room. Thank you again!!

Lucy, I have been crocheting coat hanger covers during the holidays and starting thinking about crochet flowers to add a little something to the covered coat hanger. This morning I decided to start looking for something simple, but layered. Eventually I stumbled upon your "May Rose" on Pinterest.

Once I found your description to make it, I immediately started working on my 1st one. Wow really easy. I just love it.

Will definitely browse through your other ideas and making donations as I use your ideas and patterns.


These roses are adorable! Thank you for this pattern, it is simple and just great :) Thank you!

Shame on them: http://www.usefuldiy.com/diy-carpet-of-crochet-roses/

They have stolen main part your lovely tutorial of these tiny flowers and use it like that. Gross!

Such great clear instructions and a cute flower at the end of it! I've just made my first one straight off. Lovely - thanks so much! <3


While loving the pattern, I was wondering if the first row is sc or dc as written...the picture looks like sc to me?


thank you very much for the pink flower tutorial, friendly


These are beautiful, by far my favourite rose pattern to date! Thank you so much for this, they will go perfect for the project that I'm currently working on.

Blog fantastico!


Great pattern! Thank you :)


Hi Lucy, I have just started doing crochet again after many years break, I have been searching tutorials that are easy to understand and I have to tell you that yours is the best yet in fact I have already made 2 of these beautiful flowers and will be using them in my cardmaking. Thank you so much for taking the time to do a pattern I will be trying out some more of your awesome work.

Hi Lucy

Lovely roses will have to give these a try even though its not my usual thing.

btw a tr (treble) is yarn over needle twice then insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (four loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (three loops left on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (two loops left on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook, One loop left. This is an English Treble

what you are describing is an English double crochet, which is an American Treble.

Did you learn crochet by watching You Tube by any chance? I did, it took an English crochet pattern to show me the error of my ways, lol.

Really great tutorial. I love your stitch glossary at the top (it helps us US people).

I went to donate, but the pounds signs confused me as to how much I would donate. Do you have a US dollar conversion donation page? Or maybe just add a chart somewhere for us to follow.

Thanks for your super simple directions. You are so right about patterns being too difficult.

I am teaching myself to crochet, largely through the posts on your gorgeous blog, Lucy. Trying to stay one step ahead of my students in my after-school knitting and crochet class! Just made my first flower and am delighted with myself!

I teach 11-16 year olds who are new arrivals to this country and don't have much English. I have found that sitting around a table with lots of lovely wool and beginning to create pretty things is a wonderful way to get them talking and helping each other. I love it as much as they do!
Thanks so much - Sharon x

Thanks so much for this! I needed a last minute gift for a friend and have knocked up a really cute brooch in about half an hour using this pattern. You're a life-saver. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get hooked on making these to sew on to everything now!

Hi Lucy, your home, and your crochet work is beautiful; thank you so much for sharing, and thank you for sharing your rose pattern and the heart pattern from your friend.
From Citrus Heights CA, Mary. ps Im teaching my 8 yr old granddaughter to crochet, I thought your rose would be very lovely on her new summer hat!
