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.

Lucy, I was thinking about you today and wondering how your big boy is getting on? I can't even remember what you call him, you haven't mentioned him for so long.
Belated happy birthday wishes, enjoy your 50s and 60s!


Thank you Lucy & J for the pattern and the tutorial.
So much fun designing with a bit of hard work thrown in to keep you on your toes. :-)
Keep up the good work.

Brenda Sizer

Thanks Lucy for sharing the pattern. I really appreciate you t you taking the time to create this gorgeous pattern. I've now made 2 with plans for more..thankyou


Hi Lucy,
thank you for the pattern. I've just started to make one in autumn colours. I have noticed a slight mistake in round 1 and I'm just letting you know as to help others who may want to try your pattern.
Ch 3 (counts as 1 tr): 11 tr into ring: sl st into 3rd ch of beg ch-3 to close round. (12 sts).
Hope I'm right in thinking this and you don't mind me saying.
Thanks again for all that you do and I'm loving your October blog x

You are so generous! Thank you for helping me to continue in my crochet adventures and to play with color in fun ways. Happy Fall, my dear, Loralee

Helen Mathey-Horn

Lucy, you soon will have a mandala for the table to match each blanket, so no matter the season, you can co-ordinate with your blankets! :) As always lovely work and enjoyable reading. Thank you


Thanks a lot! It's so kind of you.


I love mandalas.

Geraldine Davies

Thanks so much for sharing, I will be making these for Christmas presents for my friends and family. ☺️💕

Gill Compigne-Leaney

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern I love it. I am going to make a few for my Christmas table this year, that is after I have finished my Christams cards, made a mini dinosaur and caught uo on my TAST stitches from Sharon Boggon. Soon then!!!

Sian Collins

Lucy, thank you so much for your generosity. I have nearly finished the Yuletide blanket and will love making a mandala or two or three for presents - who knows? I am very grateful.

Laura H

What an absolutely beautiful pattern. And like other posters have said, you’re so generous to have shared it for free. I learned to crochet here, I’ve made blankets as gifts from your patterns, and had so much inspiration from you. It must make you feel so good to inspire so many people to craft. I’ll send a photo of my first mandala! Thank you xx

Anita J Tinlin

Thank you very much for sharing this pattern.

Gillian Greenshields

I love the small autumnal mandala! I'll have to zoom in and try and figure out the colour order. On my must do list today!


Very pretty collection and satisfying to make xx


Thank you, thank you, so much!


Thank you, thank you ,thank you 🤗😍 I can’t wait to try it with my stash of colours- absolute joy!

Brenda Lee Carrier

Hello, well I'm a bit late getting on the bus! I have been reading your blog long before Little B was born and now I'm finally leaving a comment, shame on me. Why am I writing now? Well I just received my yarn pack for the Yuletide blaket and I LOVE it! I had to wait a bit because it was sold out but the wait was so worth it. The quality and instructions are superb. Im going to order the Hydrangia once next. Thank you Lucy for your lovely blog and your wonderful artistic mind....oxoxox
Cheers from Canada, Brenda

Carol Jean

I live in the USA

Is it possible for me to order your yarn packs?

I really love your work - ALL of it!


Wow! This is just gorgeous. How amazing that you are blogging every day for Blogtober (a huge undertaking) AND you write up a tutorial as well! Thank you for your time and whizz-popping creativeness :)
It's Spring here so maybe I should try one in Spring colours? xox

Corinna Mazzotta

Ah Lucy - thank you so much for doing a tutorial. Even just that 1 photo you have included in today's blog is so helpful as I think that's where I've always gone wrong when attempting circles.
Knowing there's a tutorial, I will definitely have a go at this Mandala - in fact I love the Autumn coloured one so much I might do that first - it will go so well with my Woodland blanket!
Thank you so much for your hard work & your generosity in sharing all these patterns with us for free. 😘

Winwick Mum

That's a lot of work there with the photos - and thank you for the tips on where to start too. I'm pretty sure I always try to make a stitch where there shouldn't be one! xx


You are lucky to possess a creative side! Mine is quilting and counted cross stitch. Crochet has been a hobby in the past...your lovely Mandela's are tempting me to dust off the crochet hooks!

Christine Whiting

Thank next project for me for two small round tables. Lots of hard work to keep us happy.😊

Debbie Tristram

So lovely of you to print your patterns for free. Thank you Lucy. Really enjoying your daily October blogs.
