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

how could I put the pieces together? please let me know and I hope there would be the video tutorial and it would be very much helpful. Thank you.


Hi Lucy.
just watched your tutorial on this granny square. i must say that it thought me a lesson on where to start and join colours.
I am doing an 8" square for a double bed size throw and have over 60 squares ready. note that I sl stitch to join and I turned my work to access my next 3 trebles on my project. By doing only one set of trebles on the first corner has made such a difference, and i can run my loose ends into the bottom of these clusters which i try to do after a couple of my squares are complete. Thanks so much a late beginner. O A P age 72.


Hi. Could you please tell me what yarn have you used here and the hook size. I have been looking for cotton yarn but haven't found any. Many thanks x

Hi could you plz do a section on how to add a new colour properly as I knot mine and I know this is not right but a step by step guide by you would be great !!!

Was directed to your blog by a friend of mine. I've made 5 granny squares in just a few hours thanks to your brilliant explanations. I am a total beginner so it was extremely gratifying to get a beautiful result from the start! I will make another five in order to keep practicing, then I'll go onto another pattern. I want to gather enough granny squares to make a decent sized blanket ^^

My thumb is sore from the crochetting now, but I must say that I desperately want to do more!

Many thanks :)

Thank you best information ever!!!

I want to crochet a blanket for Mum to put across her knees which reaches the floor, and I have just seen your wonderful squares so I am going to crochet those, thank you.

Can you give me a rough idea of size/amount of squares needed for double knitting wool and I have no idea and can't find out anywhere? thank you from Heather x


Thank you so much! I'm so excited to start my first blanket. This is such a beautiful and simple pattern. I'm not a beginner but I was always taught patterns by other people (mother/grandmother) and watched youtube videos since I never learned how to read written patterns but yours was so easy to follow! Maybe I won't be so intimidated to try reading other patterns now.

Thanks again!

Hi! I love tour blanket, but is difficult for to read english. You have a written pattern crochet. So i can see with the universal sign. Thanks!

Just started this lovely project…I haven't crocheted since I was a young girl, with my grandmother teaching me to chain stitch. I so appreciate your clear instructions, so helpful! I also wondered what to do with the tails; do you hide them into the work as you crochet, or just trim and push them thru later?
Thank you so much…looking forward to completing this sunny quilt for my first grand baby, due in December. Stephanie

My Mum died in December. I was just starting to learn crochet and she was helping me. She really was a a whiz at crochet. Your blog has encouraged me to carry on learning . Thankyou Lucy x


Thanks so much! Just what I needed :)
I made a small donation.

Hi is the crochet terms in UK or USA version?

Tracey Driver

I have wanted to learn to crochet for a long time and came across this pattern on Pinterest ... I've made two squares from your brilliant instructions without hitch .. Thank you!


Karen Lee - the link worked to bobble worked for me. After the page comes up, you have to click on which version of video player you want to use. This video gave different bobble instructions from many I found on youtube, so you probably do want to use the one she gave.


Hi -- This is a gorgeous pattern. I'm in the middle of one now and am wondering, when you say "finish off" (such as when you're done with the pink yarn), do you mean sew it in with a needle?
Thanks so much!


Hi Lucy just wondered if you work the ends in or if you sew them all in after each round x also do u always knot to join?

How many balls needed to make baby granny square


I have trouble putting the squares together. Any ideas?


Hi, just trying to find the pattern for the flower border baby blanket and gift set done in cream and pink and purple flower granny squares only around the outside. Do you have the pattern for it. Would love to make this beautiful blanket.
