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

Thankyou for the wonderful tutorial for the ripple blanket. I learned to knit and crochet 50 years ago and made granny squares off and on over the years. Never learned to follow patterns until I discovered your blog.
I have now learned to neatly join the squares and also learned to make your fab ripple blankets. I love following your wonderful diagrams and photos. Keep up the good work. All my friends in our crafting circle double check with your blog when they have an idea. Thanks for the inspiration.


Thankyou. Love the pattern. I'm having trouble with the ends. Every row is growing. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
Regards Jodie

I know you posted this ages ago, but I am working on ANOTHER one for a friend's teenage daughter and am reminded of how much I LOVE this pattern! Your instructions and pictures make it failproof and the results are always beautiful.
I share a link to this pattern in my Facebook crochet groups often.
Thanks again for sharing your beautiful love of color and design.


Can anyone help please?! I'm on my third attempt of Lucy's beautiful ripple blanket! By row 3 eeach time the blankets puckers! 😒😳😁 The stitches flow wonderfully & the increase/decreases form but I end up with a semi circle not a flat blanket! My pals baby is due in May was hoping to get this finished as a present by then 😊 Thank you for the fabulous website Lucy xxx

I'm a crochet beginner and just wanted to clarify - the treble stitch you describe sounds like double crochet to me... Aren't you meant to yarn over twice at beginning of stitch for treble?


Thank you, thank you, thank you! This tutorial finally got me through row 3 of a ripple pattern. It took me forever to figure out the first row (my mom tried to teach me nearly 30 years ago, but totally gave up), and eventually I managed to get through the first two rows before doing something wrong and frogging it in the third row and giving up. Your tutorial was clear, and the pictures were a tremendous help.


WOW I am new to crochet and have managed to learn granny squares and circles so have made cushion covers and throws but am really looking forward to try this it looks great. You make it look so easy thank you x


Used this design to make placemats with colorful cotton yarn. Wish I could post a pic. That are pretty awesome! Thank you for providing such a thorough set of directions.


Thank you so much: this is really lovely, and so clear. Do you have any other patterns or tutorials?

I sat down w/my new hook & variegated baby yarn on Christmas evening to start a new pattern. After 2 attempts of NOT getting the ripple correct, I found your tutorial! I had it down on the first row! Thank you so much for your time in putting this together! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!


I love these instructions although I have made many ripple patterns and just forgot how to do it. Thank you very much for the details.


Hi Lucy. thanks for the instructions. It's very clear and easy to follow. I am now inspired to pull out my stash of yarn to ripple away. Thank you for sharing. Cheers Kerry

Hi Lucy, Thank you for making this tutorial. It is really easy to follow. I am making a neat ripple afghan for my son inlaw, but only using two colors. I will try to get a pic to you when it is finished.



What yarn pack did you use for this blanket

Annaliese Bush

Thank you so much for your straight forward and easy to understand pattern. I have made a couple of these ripple blankets before and yours is by far the easiest.

Emma Dunlop

Hi I love your pattern . Tried it out for a friend and loved it! I bought the beach blanket kit of you and now I'm spending the cold nights doing it! Thank you :) x


Do you turn your work for the second row or do you work back the way you came? I'm a lefty so I get confused easily reading right handed instructions. I have to say, aside from this, it was really easy for me to follow. Thanks!! !

Marie Pearson

I like the look of the pattern however I did not see needle size or yarn amount needed to finish the afghan it's very pretty. Thanks

Anna E

Thank you so much for this great tutorial. I used it for my very first crochet project and found it very easy to follow.
The result: a scarf for my niece, in purple, pink, mint and white. (If you're interested: I do have some pictures, but am not sure how to share them with you)


Thank you!
I love your crochets and I think that you are so sweet!

kathy sullivan

Angela Atherton
