About Me

  • 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

Im not sure I havent gone to a store that handles mostly to JUST yarns so I can't say what we have here in the US but will acrylic work? what size hook I don't remember seeing one

Rosemarie Babin

Could you please print the trim for ending this beautiful blanket?

Renee harper

I haven’t done a blanket in a long time but I’m going to try this it is so pretty with all the colors but I didn’t read anywhere of the size hook u used or how many chains for a foundation row would like to make a throw size. Was looking for a pattern that didn’t have big holes don’t like Hollie blankets.


Will you write a tutorial for this? I think this pattern should be included on the yarn pack from wool warehouse. :)


Hello Lucy, Love your blog! Could you tell me how many skeins of each colour is needed for this blanket? Thanks!


I know this is an older post, but your comments about young men in an RV (which is what we call a caravan here in the States) reminded me of camping with my son when he was in his teens. When he outgrew sharing a bed, we just pitched a pup tent right outside the door. Most of the campgrounds we used were mixed RV and tent camping and once we explained our need for an 'extra bedroom', didn't mind. The tent became the 'boys dorm' and a place for the older kids to get away from the younger ones for a bit when necessary.

BTW, I'm working on your "neat ripple" blanket for my granddaughter - thank you for the tutorial.


My sister asked me to make one for her daughter as a bedcover. Any change on getting a Dutch translation for making this very pretty blanket?

Ordered my pack yesterday. What a surprise a super squashy parcel arrived today full of bueatiful colours, can't wait to start my granny stripe blanket. Thank you Lucy hope you are enjoying your holiday. X

Thank you Lucy for giving me the courage to try "color". I have been crocheting on and off for 50+ years but never before did I change colors. Now I am making items with glorious, lovely color thanks to your blog and the way you share your projects with the rest of us hookers.

I LOVE this blanket, it's so colourful and vibrant! I've just started to learn how to crochet and have started with the basic 1 colour granny square! I'm happy with my progress so far, but would love some advice on how to get straighter edges and have consistent sizes! This is what I have achieved so far: https://thoroughlymodernmaisie.wordpress.com/ but would love to get started on a project like this blanket, however at this moment I don't think I'm a strong enough crocheter, but it's all a learning process!

Hi Lucy,I love your blog! You have a picture above of a granny square blanket where the squares are of varying sizes. Do you have a tutorial for that because I reeeeeeally love it!! Thanks!

Lynne Armstrong

YAY, YAY, YAY!!!!! I'm soooooo happy to see this post. Thank you so much for listing the colour sequence for this blanket Lucy :) I've been putting off trying to work out the colours from the photo....my kit has been patiently waiting for me to get started lol I love my cosy throw and my friend loves her Coast throw. Now I can make this one up for another special person, who is going to LOVE these colours.

I haven't had time to visit your blog for a while. I'm so glad I came for a catch up and stumbled across this post!! As always, I find your blog so uplifting.

Oh so bright and cheerful, love it.


Wow Lucy - that is really amazing. They look just beautiful in your caravan too.


HI Lucy, I really find joy in your blog when the weight of the world is keeping me down. I am currently hooking up a ripple blanket for my first grandchild using the interlocking color stripe. I am now reading your guide for your granny stripe and I am very surprised you don't use the foundation double stitch. I am no expert and have only done it in my practice but it does eliminate the initial chain stitches and then the eye popping that goes with dealing with the first row of dc. you can find directions on line, that's how I found it.


I just wanted you to know that I spent a lot of time peering at your project photos to figure out the color order years ago! :D I'm so glad you've listed them out!


Sweet, colourful memories. Thanks for sharing them with us :) xxx


Hi Lucy Girl! I have the package of colors for the stripy blanket, I just have to get to the project. I so love your blog and I check it each day. Even if I'd read an article/blog before I love just browsing through the pictures...I am a lover of color and sometimes the colors just take make to a far-away land...called Yorkshire! LOL Hugs, MO

Hi Lucy,

Warm regards

Hey Lucy!
I'm trying to reach you to discuss opportunities with US publisher Interweave Press. My email is attached to my comment. I really hope to hear from you!

I am working my way through the stripes, this is my go to project when I am having a break in between complicated lace knitting or larger garment projects. I call it my sanctuary project (much to my friends amusement). Thank you

Alex H

The granny stripe is what I have planned as my Spring project. I have the Attic24 stylecraft bundle already. (So glad you have the shop now, so I have access to the yarn, which I could not get where I live.)

I made the blanket for my daughter before in other colors, and we love it. I want one of my own!

Thank you for your inspiration and generosity.


Thank you for revisiting this blankie . I'm going to use this pattern as a stash buster..😊 Although I really want to buy some more yarn..bad, bad...xoxo susie
