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

Great tutorial. Thanks.

a thankyou very much . I went looking for the file of my flowers, can't find it. I get on the net, there you are with these beautiful roses I need for a Tea cosy and lots more things. I am a machine knitter, but am going to crochet these this afternoon. I hope mine will look half as good as yours, regards Dawn


What a wonderful discovery to find your blog! Thanks for sharing.

Hi there! I just wanted to say that your little rose pattern helped me out a lot today!
I was struggling to make a rose for a bunny bride amigurumi, and the rose included in the pattern didn't turn out well at all. Yours worked perfectly. If you'd like to see it, pictures are at my blog! http://catstitches.wordpress.com/2014/05/24/the-bride-is-finished/ :-) Many greets from Belgium!

Hi Lucy,

I found your wonderful blog recently and it inspired me to crochet a pair of Mary Jane slippers. I have just started crocheting and your instructions were so easy to follow. Thank you for posting it online.

I hope you don't mind me adding a link to your blog in my crochet pattern for people who want to make the slippers. The pattern is free on www.ravelry.com. I have attached a link for your reference.

Thank you once again! Have a great day!

Hi and thanks so much for what looks like a do-able pattern....just one Q,though. Are all the instructions in "Enlish"? Or "American"? I'm still pretty novice with my crochet skills and am befuddled the difference between the two....
Thanks again, Lord bless!


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!

Katie Lench

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
