Thank you for sharing your lovely patterns. One is prettier than the next. I'm having a hard time deciding which pattern to use to crochet.

Just the sweetest granny square I've ever seen. Ty, 4 sharing your gifts and talents. 💙🐥


I just realized the border I’m asking about isn’t even ON the mini blanket lol. It’s on the stripe blanket under ur lovely new bowl and your mug. Could u add the border stitch to the little pattern? Pretty please :)


I love to just look at the pictures of your work :)
My 4yr old has cancer and we are oftentimes stuck inside. I’ve made a little world for 18” American Girl dolls for both of my little ones. (Big sis is 8 but they also have two much older sisters of 19 and 22...I’m gonna be a grandma in May to a little BOY!!). Miss Emma saw this and fell in love. I’ve got plenty of Caron yarn in bright colors from another project I can steal from. I can’t tell what the border is....I would call myself and intermediate crochet hooker but I still can’t tell all stitches by sight. Could u tell us what type border that is? Im terrible at the borders it seems but that looks like something I would like and it lays flat.


Thanks for sharing. Very simple n cute.

Podría mandar el tutorial en español?



Love these squares! is there a tutorial for stitching them all up?
would greatly appreciate it!


Sarah Eddleston

Absolutely adorable. I'm starting my own blanket with these squares and it is coming along beautifully. I definitely recommend it to anyone who is wanting to do a quick and easy project.


hopefully you will see this! I have a question. I love this idea but I would love to know how you put them together!! did you use a yarn needle or did you crochet them together? I'm have trouble figuring out how to get it put together!



Hi Lucy! Thank you for those lovely squares. My aunt is going back to knitting and this is the perfect project to begin with. God bless you!


Thanks so much for the hours of enjoyment you've given me and for the excitement I find building in me until I once more can get back to your site to see what new and creative ideas I can explore, next.
I've read about Artisan bread that looked so delicious, I was salivating and I can't wait to try to these little granny squares. Never thought of connecting them.
Your site makes me happy just looking at it.
I've started my May wreath, which gave me nothing but happy thoughts and a warm feeling that brings me back to my childhood.
I love a cozy home. I find the blogs you list so interesting.
You just get my creative juices going and I feel thrilled to be alive.
I think I might be rambling but I just felt I had an obligation to let you know that I have just been delighted that I found you!


My nieces are getting doll blankets for Christmas and this is the perfect pattern to do. Thanks again for writing it out for all of us. :)


I love these little squares and I will use lots of them in future projects.

I just wonder, how do you crochet the border that you have surrounded the squares please.

Take care and I wish you lots of lovely crocheting time. Blessed Be.

By the way, I am also from North England too :-)


Lovely - The owls are fab too, we're becoming colonised!


I just found your blog through Facebook. You do lovely work which is so inspiring. Thank you for sharing the patterns!

Hi Lucy
I've just seen your little blue bowl, it's really lovely, I also love charity shop rummages and would just have to buy that blue bowl.
Looks like your a Cappuccino girl as well, I have about 4 sachets a day!
Well, we need them to keep us warm!

I have been iPadless for a while,
so just catching up with Attic24 makes me feel soooooooo warm inside.
Happy Spring Lucy


Lucy, your job is really beautiful. I'm very new doing crochet and I would like to know how to make those little squares. Can you help me?


Hi Lucy, this is fabulous! Do you mind if I ask which yarn you've used? X

I'm a beginner to crochet and avidly follow your blog! One thing that I am not well versed in yet is yarn and hook selection. I am hoping to make these delightful little squares. I am wondering if there is a type of yarn (acrylic, cotton, wool, or blend) that you typically work in? As well as what size hook do you use? Until I hone my own talent I will need to replicate others to understand the craft....
