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

I think this looks great and i'm looking forward to having a go later this evening.
I love your tutorial as they are in plain English and I understand them.

Thank you so much Lucy for yet another clear, concise and friendly tutorial. I've just completed one of these and I'm really pleased with the result.

Hi Lucy,
I'm a beginner in crocheting and something in this tutorial is confusing for me. In the blooming cusion tutorial you wrote: "Ch 1, then work 15 dc into the ring."(chain 1 counts as dc)
And here:
Round 1 ::
Chain 2 (counts as 1 dc), then work 6 dc's into ring.
What is the difference? And why chain 2 counts as dc here?
Thank you so much! Your work is really amazing!


I am just learning. I will have a go at this. it is so pretty


Have only recently come across your blog - it is absolutely fantastic and I shall return again and again. The colours you use and the fun things you make just inspire me to grab yarn and hook and have a go thankyou.
Best wishes from Jan

tried to send some $ but the button function wouldn't take a U.S. address (actually the 'county' field is the hangup. If you could fix, will remit!)

Your hard work is very much appreciated. Have never seen such concise and detailed instructions.


hello attic ,i really love your colourfull word .you have a bigest fan in doha


I am a beginner living in the uk so find the uk terms easier to understand. Your flowers look lovely so I am going to try making them. Thanks for the pattern.


Hi Mary
Not sure if you found your answer but the reason for the chain is to gain some height before you move onto your next stitch...if you've made a ring for the start of a flower say, if you just did a double crochet straight into one of the next stitches you'd have no height. Chaining 2 first will add the height needed before you do your double crochet. You count the 2 chain as a double crochet because it is included as part of the crochet you'll be doing...does that make sense? I guess just pretend it is a double crochet! If you're doing treble crochet then the chain will be 3 as that is the height needed and created by the treble. Not sure if that's helped. I expect Lucy would explain much better!


you know yours is the best in the whole lot of crochet blogs. so well written and easy to follow. I recently have been bitten by the crichet bug and literally cant stop. made a cute little scarf for my niece and decorated with these flowers and leaves. it looks awesome...thanks and a very happy new year to you. your new follower.


Thank you for the explanation, Kate. But my question was: "Chain 2 counts as 1 dc" or "Chain 1 counts as 1 dc" ? I've seen in Lucy's Flat circle tutorial that chain 2 counts as htr
And in the Triple Layer flower Tutorial
"Chain 2 = 1 dc" Why?
I've found somewhere that:
ch 1 counts as 1 dc
ch 2 counts as 1 htr
ch 3 counts as 1 treble
Is this right?
Many thanks again, Lucy!

Estupendo paso a paso, unas flores muy bonitas


Hi Lucy, I absolutely love your flower! I've just made it and it's beautiful :) I was wondering, are we allowed to sell our finished flowers? I am opening an Etsy store soon, and would love to include this! I would, of course, give you credit in the listing :)


absolutely stunning!!! Thank YOU so much!


Your tutorials are fantastic. I love love love the close up shots, they make it really easy to follow. The long tutorials are great for beginners like me. I can do it with your help. Thanks.

O MY GOSH! You are like the crochet queen! I love your yarn, it's sooooooooo colorful! I've been crocheting for a couple of years and this is the first time I've seen your blog and I'm blown away. I thought I could crochet, but man! You make me feel like a beginner! (no offense to those who are starting out!) You inspire me alot, but I only go though email. So if you could email me, I'd love to chat and learn how in the world you became sooooooooo good at crochet!




I'm enjoying your crochet a lot. Wonderful colors! I love England and I miss your country a lot. I lived in Colchester and had the most marvelous years in my life. All the countryside, flowers, birds, people, seasons and hedgehogs going to my garden at night! I'm from Brazil, but my heart became british! Kisses.

Hi Lucy, you sound absolutely delightful and I do love this pattern. I expect there are many other patterns of yours that I will want to make too.
