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

Good Morning to all!!! I spotted this on Pinterest and just had to have a go. I ordered it yesterday so I will be a couple weeks behind, but I can not wait to add this blanket to your Scotland themed bedroom... Thank you so much for the incredible work and time you spend on planning and making these beautiful creations to share with all of us!!!
Look forward to working with you all in the coming weeks...
Kind Regards!!!

I am excited to start this. It has been a tough year already and we're only on day 7. However, I am now away to start the sample - something I wouldn't ordinarily do but I need calm and not to worry - so here goes in Perthshire, Scotland! Good luck everyone xx

Hi Lucy, you are amazing. What a lot of work went into this page! Thank you. I was impatient. I got the yarn in December but could not wait to start, so I made a small lap blanket using a granny square and just made it up... I wish now I had waited. I have tons of leftover yarn so I made a scarf/wrap out of it for myself which I love. My stitch pattern is slightly different from yours, only using 2 stitches instead of 3, but here's a photo of it if you can see it here: https://flic.kr/p/R16hKg

Catherine: I'm sure you will have plenty of wool for the blanket! I guess we will have a lot left to make a pillow cover or teacosy or what you will. I have done 20 waves (about 30 cm height) and used less than 200 grams of yarn


Great pattern, I have done my swatch and some colour reference tags. Looking forward to starting this afternoon!


Hi Lucy
My tension square is 20cm by 6.75cm and I wondered if I should drop down to a 3.75 hook?
Thanks for any thoughts.
Love the pattern!


Oh!!!! So excited to start! I bought the yarn pack and will force myself to do the sample before diving in. I'm always worried about running out of yarn....after making the sample, will I need to pull it out and reuse it in the blanket?

Thank you, and thank you SO much for creating this lovely project!

Hi Lucy,
Thank you so much for all your hard work on the new blanket. I have the yarn and can't wait to get started but I have to finish the Cosy one first!! Maybe I'll work the sample just to get a taste!!
I'm in bed with the "dreaded flu" but as soon as I can I'll have my hook back in my hand
I wish you a good recovery and all good things for 2017
Kind Regards

After completing a couple of samples I had to drop to a 3.5 hook to get the tension right ...has anyone else done this ...🙄

The stripes will alternate - ie the first stripe begins with ch-2 and a half pattern repeat, the second stripe begins with a ch-3 and a full pattern repeat, the third stripe then goes back to starting with a ch-2 and a half pattern repeat, the fourth stripe will start with a ch-3 and a full pattern repeat etc etc. I hope this make sense??

Jo Jackson

Hi Lucy in the two point summary of the pattern 1 being identical stripes, shouldn't point 2 be ch-2 and full repeats, ch-3 and half repeat each end? Think you put it the other way round. Best wishes, loving it, many thanks.


Sample made! Ready to start in Georgia (USA)! My sweet daughters bought me the yarn pack for Christmas. I've been excitedly waiting for this day! I made the Cosy Stripe blanket in 2016. Love your blankets and color combinations, Lucy!


Love the Moorland! Ready to start! I have read the pattern through and I will assume that in the pattern for "last stripe", that means the last of the blanket and not part 1? Looks like all the rows will be wave pattern and no straight rows. Correct? Thanks for the hard work that you have put in to bringing this CAL to us...well a labor of love really! Hooky hugs from Mary in Arizona!!


Thank you for the fun pattern. Hugs from Arizona USA

Thanks Lucy. What a great way to begin 2017. I've always admired your blankets - this is my first CAL. I'm so eager to begin. Received the yarn package as a birthday present! (It only took one hint - hahaha!!)


Wow, Thank-you Lucy! Such detailed instructions w/photos. Have my cuppa and ready to begin...
^..^ ^..^


Hi Lucy. If I use the wool from the pack for the sample will I have enough to complete the blanket still or should I use some other wool for the sample?

Marjo from Rotterdam

Thank you for sharing your beautiful pattern with us. I love your colour combination, I would never ever come up with this colourscheme! Now I am eager to start but wanted to thank you first. Keep up the good work!!

Jenny Tribout

Can you please suggest any helpful tips if all I have to work with is worsted weight yarn, not DK?


Hi Lucy, just a quick question about the stitch counts... you say the pattern repeat goes dc,dc,htr,htr,tr,tr,htr,htr,dc,dc... so does that mean the next repeat starts with 2 dc? i.e. are there 4 x dc in a row between the taller stitches, or are the last 2 dc of one repeat counted as the first 2 dc of the next one? Hope that makes sense!

Thanks, looking forward to having a beautiful Moorland blanket for summer camping!


Thank you for the awesome instructions! I got the kit for Christmas and I can't wait to start!!!!

Louise  Ballantine

The colours have been calling to me still in their bag from when they arrived
I'm so looking forward to getting them out so I can get started
Thank you so much 😘

Sarah Jones

Dear Lucy Thank you for your beautiful pattern. It must have taken you hours
of work with the instructions, diagrams,photos etc. So I have read all the instructions carefully. Now I am about to rush around the rest of the house and finish housework before I sit down; crochet my sample and check the tension.
A big hug from me. x

Kate Walters

I too have been checking since early this morning so that I can use my Christmas gift of the yarn pack and knit pro crochet hooks!! So excited that I've already completed the tension sample and am raring to go. Housework on hold for an hour....or three!!! Thank you so much, Lucy.


I've been so impatient waiting for this and now its here!!!! I'm reading this in my lunchtime at work and I wish so much that I had bought some yarn and my hooks with me so I can get started. Still, I am looking forward to spending a couple of hours this evening in my cozy armchair, a glass of my favourite tipple at my side, making my tension sample and maybe starting the blanket. Many thanks for all your hard work with this.
