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

Awesome, I have made 3 already, in blues and white for our Yule tree! I am working one more.They are so pretty, easy and fast to work! Love your blog! GREAT instruction!


Hi, I'd like to know what size your bells are too please, I can't see any replies. I was struggling to figure out how you got the beads onto the bottom of the bauble decorations and then realised it's because it's a bell at the bottom. I'm seeing 6mm and 8mm on Amazon. Also what size buttons did you find worked best? Thanks, it's going to be a colourful Christmas!

Hi, is there anyway that I could get this pattern from you? I think they would make wonder Christmas gifts. I would most definitely p0ay you in advance if your able to e-mail it to you. I was a stay home mom for our three boys who are all out on their own. I'm truly blessed have a wonderful husband as well. Hope to hear from you and peace. Betty Ann


Hi! I just started a star and am loving it so far. Thanks for sharing your pattern!! One question: I'm having trouble with the picot-point with the star pointy bits in round 5. After I have chained 2, do I yarn over before I insert the hook into the second chain?

Hola Lucy:
Me encanta tu blog, lo veo diariamente. He empezado con el ganchillo hace 6 meses y te puedo decir que haces cosas maravillosas. Yo ahora estoy haciendo un cactus de ganchillo.
Te escribo desde Madrid España.
Muchas gracias por compartir ésto con todos.
Un saludo

I found your blog via Ravelry so this is why my post is that late corresponding to the edition of your article. Thank you so much for this tutorial! These stars are looking fabulous. Muriel.

Hi Lucy, Thanks for sharing your patterns - these are SO gorgeous! Could I just ask what size bells you used? Were they 6mm?

I've been looking at your blog and discovered your link to Clothkits!!! My 7 month old daughter loves my old clothkit dolls, although they are a bit old, but now I can make her some more! Thank you.


I love the stars! Thanks for a great tutorial!

Thanks for your wonderful tutorials! I'm making my first star dec tonight and I'm missing something. Round 4 ends up with 40 stitches (2 long and 2 short dc x 10) and it seems like round 5 needs 42 stitches (7 stitches x 6). What am I missing?

I'm in the US and using Sugar & Cream cotton but it is missing some of the great colors you have. Can anyone recommend a different cotton yarn available in US or a place to get the Rico cotton? Many thanks.
