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

Lucy, how many little solid grannies do I need for the pillow cover? From one of your last pictures, I count 9 rows of 7 so that would make it 63 grannies. Please let me know if I am correct. Thank you for making tutorials simple enough so that even this 82yr old newbie is able to follow.


Hi would you pit an edge around the sold granny square ? If so what would you recommend? Love
all your work x

Dear Lucy, once again from Calif to say that I have muddled through and with the help of your tutorial, I have managed to make quite a few squares. Also, in between, I made a mandala and love doing that. It came out really good and I am so proud. Thanks again for being so helpful <3


I use a yarn that is 50% acrylic and 50% cotton. My blankets are a bit heavy and stretched. Do you think I should use only acrylic yarn that is lighter?
Thank you

Faye Faraldo

Sorry, I forgot to thank Jules for informing me about doing these with cotton and another one called sugar and cream.

Hello again from CA. I was too quick to say how much I enjoyed this project as I am having so much trouble and have to start each one at least 8-10times as I keep losing my holes in the second round. I also keep using the ch5 hole as one of my 4 holes but that always throws me off. Can any one help if they are having that same problem. When I do manage to get one made, it looks o.k.

Faye Faraldo

Dearest Lucy, I am in the process of making the squares for the pillow. It is so very warm and humid in Calif so having a wee project to take with me is fabulous. Thank you so much for showing me how to do it and is wasn't too difficult at all. I will donate to your fund so the good work can continue.



In reply to CA from California - I've made theses squares from cotton and they are lovely. The weight of the cotton makes them sit beautifully flat and the stitch definition is nice too. I used the stylecraft classic cotton (gotta love stylecraft - they have a yarn for everything!) as they have a great range of colours - lily's sugar n cream is good to use too!


Thank you so much for writing this up, I can imagine it takes a lot of time and concentration. I so appreciate it, I've only ever been able to do an ordinary granny square, thought I'd give this a go and guess what..I did it! so excited to make your cushion for my nieces 13th birthday. Thank you again...so very much


Dear Lucy, many thanks for this great tutorial, I always had problems with sewing, because don't like not pretty wrong side of my blankets. Thank you very very much! Hugs :)

Thanks Lucy for another great pattern I am left handed and always find your patterns with pictures easy to follow and at last have mastered this cute pattern with a list of projects it can be use for. Currently working on your Cosy Stripe Blanket


Thanks Lucy for another wonderful, clear tutorial. I am currently,busy with your cottage ripple blanket and love the smooth texture of the stylecraft yarn and how you have put the colours together. Is there any chance of letting us know the colours you have used for,the gorgeous solid granny square blanket?


One becomes in a good mood, seeing your happy colours.
