I think this is beautifully stitched and the colours devine. The stitch looks a lot like one I thought I had created myself alone a few years ago but have found the same or similar ones I think they call double crochet long stitch or something of that sort. Its hard to know if you've come up with something original or something someone else has written about and or published before you.

Keep up all the beautiful work and crafting. I just love your colour sense and your work too. M


Its lovely and may be yours to call YOUR OWN INVENTION!!!! Looks like the bargello needlepoint stitch only in crochet. LOVE IT


Hi, your stitch looks like a shorter version of 'smooth wave stitch' in The Harmony Guide to Crochet stitches. In UK terms, row one is 4 trebles then 4 dc. then turn and do 4dcs then 4 tr . . .

However your variation appears to use two, instead of four, stitches of each.

It looks pretty using the bright colours you have chosen.

Hi Lovely Lucy, sorry I have been absent for a few days, it has been one busy week! My goodness I adore the colours you are using and cannot wait to see what it is. You are always full of gorgeous surprises Lucy, not wonder we all love you. Have a lovely weekend, sending you big hugs and loves


Gorgeous pattern, please share. I love love love to knit and crochet but unfortunately I am not creative, and must rely on creative minds like you. I absolutely enjoy your post especially since I live in Florida, in the states and love to follow all the pictures you take of your lovely town.
Thanks again for sharing


Hi Lucy
I love the new stitch. It looks a bit like waves or ripples but without all the increasing and decreasing.
Enjoying your blog - it's an inspiration.

Pretty pattern! And of course the colors...


Oh, Lucy! This pattern is truly delicious. I adore the colors, as always. Lovely.

I love that word "squidgy!" LOL! Such gorgeous colors ... just the ones I love. Beautiful stitch too ... if you can't find it, hurry up and name it ... LucyAttic Stitch or Attic24 Stitch ... or you'll come up with the best creative name ever. :) Love coming here. I'll have to try that yarn.


Wonderful stitch in wonderful colours, I love all!


Such a pretty pattern! I'm loving chunky yarn at the moment. I'm making a blanket and can't wait to wrap up in it, it's so thick and cuddly.

Looks lovely, can't wait to see the end product.

I love that stitch patten, really pretty. I love James Brett Marble Chunky. It knits up easily and washes beautifully. I've got ear warmers and a body warmer/waistcoat in it, x


Hi Lucy! Love your blog! I have been crocheting for a few months now and I love it. I have to say bulky yarn is my all time favorite to work with! It works up to so quickly and i love the way it feels between my fingers. I recently just ordered 19 skeins of a bulky yarn to make a large afghan out of. I can't wait! Come visit me at my blog sometime! :)



I love your new afghan. Great stitch. I haven't used a chunky yarn, but Vanna's Choice is a heavy worsted, especially in certain colors. I am using it now with a 6 mm hook to make Granny Stripes and enjoying how quickly it works up.


Hi Lucy, Down here in Australia we have a yarn called
Biggan Design, they are in Queensland. 4 and 8 ply only: 50gs skeins @ AU$11.25. The colours are amazing and they have many hues of the same colours. You can take a peek at www.biggandesign.com. Can hardly wait to see what your project will turn into, looks fab.

Lucy, your blog never fails to make my day! I wish I had your photography talent as well as your color combining talent!

Cheers from Western Canada


Love the stitch! My favorite chunky yarn is Debbie Bliss Rialto Chunky. Not cheap but oh so squishy.


After seeing your poncho I was inspired to have a go, so I found a simple pattern on the garnstudio website(fantastic range of free patterns)and bought some James C Brett marble chunky at a Craft Show last Friday. I'm loving the variegated colours and it's coming together very quickly. Thanks for the inspiration Lucy.


I like how the colors interact in your swatch. My favorite chunky yarn is Lion Brand Jiffy. I don't do a lot of chunky-weight projects, but when I do, it's my go-to yarn.

Lovely stitch Lucy. I'm making a cushion cover using Rowan Cocoon which is a chunky wool and mohair blend. It's lovely to use but yikes is it expensive at around £8 for a 50g ball. Good job it's a mother's day present! L x


I'm currently hooking up a ripple baby blanket inspired by your interlocking ripple blanket using Hayfield baby chunky. There's not many colours but I think you'd like it Lucy! It's great value, good quality acrylic. This is the second blanket I've made with it. The first is owned by my friend's two little girls. They love it and it goes everywhere with it and it washes well too apparently!


Hi Lucy,
I'm a crochet beginner and haven't a hope of recognising the stitch, HOWEVER... it reminds me of the heart monitor lines....think Holby City!!
maybe, "Be still my beating heart?"!
With soooo much pleasure, Pamela


Oh my.....smoochy love yarn. I like yarn with some "meat" ♥♥
