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

Thank you for sharing! I just love this granny square!


hi lucy, thank you for sharing this. you've done a remarkable job here and i can't wait to try it. love the circular flower within the granny square.

wondered what your thoughts are on using the rowan dk wool for this blanket vs. the dk cottons you've used previously? the rowan dk wool offers so many gorgeous colors but i'd have to order it online (my local shops are not so cooperative as yours!) and i'm trying to summon the courage.

thanks again for all the colorful fun you share, always a treat!


Thank you, Lucy...your yarn colors look so deliciously pretty up close. I will be printing this out...think I will practice this weekend and I will let you know how I do!!

Lucy! Thank you so much for putting this up so quickly! This is a simply lovely pattern that can be used in so many ways. My head is swimming with ideas. Thank you, again. Enjoy your weekend.


luce, i remembered i did asked u about granny square before, i get lost from 2nd round onwards. but now no more worries, i've got ur tutorial to guide me and also i've learned the crochet languages.

ya, i remembered the bobble stich u taught us, in the hexagon. i am happy to have met ur blog and its my pleasure reading it everyday.

a big THANK YOU to u :)


You are so sweet to share. Lately, because of your blog mind you....I have been back to crocheting and loving it. I love your blog Lucy!! Your attic brings back memories of an old Shirly Temple movie...(what was its name ?)...where her father is in the service and puts her up in a boarding school..word gets out he has died and there is no money left so she must be put up in the attic as a servant...but what wonderful things happen to her up there. Her dad eventually comes back.


Thanks again for sharing with everyone Luce! Oh the possibilities with this so wonderful little pattern. I know I've probably said it before, but thanks for sparking my interest in crochet blankies again. You are FANTABULOUS!!!!! :D

Thanks a million - what a perfectly written tutorial. You are such an inspiration to all your readers!!!


Thanks so much for the pics- it makes converting it to US much easier. I was inspired by your Rowan wool last week, to go off to my local shop and spend an unreasonable amount of money on brightly colored wool. It makes the February blahs so much better! Now I'm peeking in the bag, and imagining what I can do...


Yeah, yeah, yeah! Love them!!!


Thank you Lucy. They look great and I can't believe you have only been crocheting for 18 months!! Well done you for being so creative!!


Thank you Lucy, you are a star. Guess what I will be doing tonight?!!! Kathyx


Perfect! I wish I had a chunk of change to go out and purchase all the yarn needed to make these.


Thank you for a pattern I shall certainly be trying it when I have a moment or two. I do like the circles on their own too.

Oh, these are so wonderful! I'm ever so glad you like to share because I love your patterns! I'm working on my 2nd striped tote now--just for fun--and have plans to make one for just about everyone I know. Thank you for your generosity and inspiration! ;-)


Oh! You're such a doll! I came back to your blog this morning, seeing that sweet little circle at the top but no mention of the pattern...then kept scrolling thru the lovlies and saw the pattern posted comment!!! How happy am I??? Printed out your instructions so I may relax in comfort this evening. Thank you ever so much,

I so love visiting your cozy crochet-y corner!
I have always been an avid crocheter, but it has taken on a new meaning for me since I discovered your work.
I have been hexing and squaring like crazy!
Therapeutically, also, it is a Godsend for me, as my beloved hubby passed away just this last May, sadly just shy of his fortieth birthday.
Crocheting cheers me and carries me through the days, ( and especially the evenings,) and I can even feel my darling peeking over my shoulder saying how pretty my work is.
He was such a dear, and even would buy me hooks and yarn for Christmas and Birthdays.
Thank you once again for providing a place for me to come and smile and be happy and enjoy one of my passions.

Hi Lucy, I came across yr blog today and it really brightened up my day. The colors of your granny squares are simply inspiring. Thank you for these cheerful colors.

I want to get started on GRanny squares and your instructions w photos look really simple... but it's been donkey years since I last did a crochet and I'm really a bit lost for a start. Can you be so kind to provide a video or advise a video link where I can see demos? I'm sorry for the trouble.

THANK YOU again for the lovely creation. You are an inspiration! :)


Hi Lucy,

Just love this.. I have started to make the summer garden granny square blanket. My first project ever. I taught myself to crochet through your excellent instructions. I am loving it. I have quite a collection of squares now. Using squares made from three colours of Rowan DK wool. Can you explain how you do the white border.. and block together. Just love your blog. I am going to work my way through all of your projects. Never mind the housework. Thank you soooo much.....

Great tutorial!! I love your easy-to-follow pics and directions! Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for sharing these instructions. I've started my own version of your garden, and am looking forward to finishing it! :-D


Lucy, thank you ever so much for giving instructions in plain English! I have tried to crochet granny squares before but always without success. I printed out your instructions and have already made 3! I'm on my way to having my own Summer Garden Granny Square blanket! Thank you, thank you!


Thanks for the tutorial. I just started making my first granny squares. Question though: do you weave the hanging yarns in and out or do you cut them? Or is there something else to do with them? Thanks for the help!


Hi Lucy, Thank you so much for inspiring me so much. I now have a blog that I just started yesterday. Quite exciting really. I really love all the things you buy and the photos you take. Thank you also for teaching me to crochet - wish I enjoyed it as much as you, but I think I'll stick to my sewing. Keep up the fabulous work and enjoy your holiday. Sarah
