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

Just made my first trial one, fantastic! Thank you so much!!! Realise I've been making up my own strange hybrid DC stitch, but for once read your tutorial correct and worked it out. Hope you have a lovely bank holiday!!!


Loving these! thanks for the hard work nutting out the design! I hear my wool basket calling me! :)


I learnt how to crochet just last week and have finished one of your roses...amazingly simple but beautiful pattern! Thank you.


As usaul beautiful! Am off to make a little wreath of roses, by sticking them on a circle of cardboard trimmed in ribbon, thank you for the patterm x


I think you must be the Lucy who stepped out of that wardrobe from Narnia. You are so talented. I love all your crocheted designs. Thank you for blogging them. I went to the amazon site and tried to donate to you there but I couldn't seem to figure out how. I'll try another way later. L


I really enjoy reading your blog all the way from Victoria, BC, Canada! I love your little bit of happy, stripey, colourful UK over here on the west coast. :) it's a wonderful pick me up on days when I'm feeling grey.

I was wondering... What crochet hooks are your favorite to use? I've been using the basic metal ones since they are the easiest to get my hands on but they don't feel very nice when I'm using them.

Thank you!


Hello and thank you, these will be perfect for adorning a tea cozy I've been knitting!

Re: donating. I did send you something a few months ago, but have no idea whether it was received or not as it was never acknowledged, which discourages me from sending any more.


Lucy absolutely lovely again thank you for sharing , have put on my list to do once my visitors have gone home,


Fabulous! thanks very much for sharing your pattern.


These are very sweet little May roses, thank you for the very clear tutorial. I'm making them for a couple of friends with May birthdays! My birthday is in May too, so maybe I'll make some for myself too!
Have a lovely Sunday!


I love the new left pattern, can't wait to make them. Your roses are adorable and your tutorials are so helpful. Thanks for taking the time to make the tutorials.


Thank you Lucy. As usual they are fabulous, the instructions are impeccable and the photos a perfect accompaniment.
Do you look at "Making" magazine? It is good.
The current issue (jubilee themed on sale in Asda) has an advert from a craft book publishing company. They are looking for craft based writers, no writing experience necessary. Why don't you have a look. They would bite your hand off. I will write you a reference!

Love this, thanks so much for all the wonderful patterns you put on your blog!!!


Lovely, as always :) I pinned this one and I'm sure I will try making a few of these sometime soon!

Hi Lucy,

So cute. Thank you. I alway love your tuts. They are so clear and straight forward. There's never a question on how to do them. It makes me want to dash off and grab my crochet hook and yarn.

What lovely flowers. Your patterns are easy to understand with lovely photos to follow each step. Your use of lovely bright colours is an inspiration.
I agree you should definately write a book


Hello Lucy, I tried making your May Roses, and they turned out so lovely. I must confess that my first 2 were made using the US version in error - but they still turned out very nice. When I realized my mistake, I tried one the way you intended, and it was so lovely and a bit smaller which worked well as an embellishment to a very small drawstring crocheted bag I am am making for my daughter.

I am really enjoying your blog and hearing about your great holiday - and your pictures are wonderful. I had the good fortune to make my first trip to England last June for a very short stay in London. Think I need to start planning for another trip.


They look so pretty. Have to try them. Thanks.

What beautiful little bunches of loveliness! I am very new to crochet but I will certainly add these to my wish list. I love your blog and I have just about got the hang of the little flower you have created. Wish I had your talent. Your tutorials are great - pictures very helpful. Thank you x

Gail B.

Beautiful and a great visual tutorial! Thank you sooooo much :)


Hey Lucy, i just want to say that your blog is AWESOME! I have learnt how to crochet just by reading your blog and i have made loads of stuff that people love! The crochet bag, the ripple scarf, i have made the flowers and even made earrings from your crochet snow flake pattern. Thank you so much for blogging. Your wording is perfect and the pictures make it even easier to get. So thank you all the way from Kenya!

Thank you Lucy, these roses are divine and my fingers are itching to start!
Kind regards from sunny Queensland, Australia.


I've just had a blissful hour working up some of these babies! Clear, perfect tutorial. Thank you so much. This is exactly what Bank Holiday Mondays are for :) xx
