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

Hi lucy,

the link to your bobble video doesn't work? what is it cause i'm confused about 1st round of 8 bobbles

Thank you for your instructions and the very good photos. However you should know that in knitting and crochet, you NEVER join yarn by making a knot! You crochet/knit the new yarn in or sew it later, following stitches, with a darning needle :)

Hi Lucy, I have made granny squares years and years ago, but your blog has ignited my passion! One question, how do you hide your joined ends? I tried weaving them as you described on the little coat squares (by the way I've just 'pimped' an old coat using them!! Not as good as yours, but had lots of compliments!), but the spaces on the granny squares are too large and the ends show even when carried across. Any tips to save me going back and sewing them in individually? Thanks, Rosie

I'm having trouble with the first part. My circle isn't closing the way yours is in the picture? I've still got a small hole in the pattern. The rest has turned out quite well. Thanks for all your hard work with the pictures, they helped me a lot.

Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.


Do you sell the granny squares 6 x 6 ?

hi lucy thank you soo much for this pattern. you're a big help to me....


Lucy, Love this pattern and have tried it, but I end up with the same problem every time!
My flower has 8 petals, but as you look at them each petal has two 'parts', apart from my first one which is made up of 1tr rather than a bobble so it only looks like it has one 'part' ( hope that makes sense!)
The pattern says to do a treble followed by 7 bobble stiches, so I get an odd petal every time. What on earth am I doing wrong....?


I've just spent ages googling for the granny square pattern that I wanted to make and am so pleased to have come across this. It's exactly what I had in mind and I'm now addicted to making them. Thanks so much for sharing.


Lucy, your life in the north of England sounds glorious! I share a number of your interests, including sewing, crochet, & gardening. I also teach sewing, patchwork, & crochet. I love this granny square. You've done a brilliant job of creating it, and have written an awesome tutorial to go with it. If you were my daughter, I'd be telling you how proud I am of you! I look at lots and lots of patterns on lots and lots of blogs, but they rarely captivate me as yours has done. May God (whom you haven't mentioned in your interests list, but I hope He's behind all this!) bless you with continued happiness in your life!!

Hi, I love your blog always has nice things here, beijokas ...



Dear Lucy, thank you so much for this pattern. I already made several blankets using these squares, you really are an inspiration. Got a question tho, and I really really hope you can find the time to answer me because after making 3 blankets I suddenly got very very confusing: round 4 you start making 4 chains, countng as 1tr + 1 chain. The rest of the corners however all heve 2 chains.. Am I mistaken? It seems off but it may be me. Hope so much to hear from you and be reassured :) Big hug Rosa
