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

Hi Lucy! I loooove this pattern but I am having a horrible time getting the right gauge (I know this is a personal problem). I ordered the kit that has all of the recommended yarn but even with a 2.75 mm crochet hook, my square is about 12.5 cm. Do you have any particular tips for getting gauge or even recommendations on a brand crochet hook? I am an intermediate crocheter but I have literally redone square 1 10 times just changing the side of the crochet hook. I don't think my stitches look nearly as close together as yours and it's making me bananas! Thank you in advance.

I'm loving doing this. The wonderful colours make it almost addictive! I previously did the Eastern Jewels blanket and was initially worried that I might find this boring but I'm loving it.

Hi Lucy I was wondering why no 2 single crochets in the
corner when doing the join as you go method.
Thanks for the lovely pattern. This is my second of your
blankets. Jenny, Carlsbad California

I want to get this but I’m fairly new to crocheting and I’m also left handed so I’m worried it will be too difficult for me?

I finished the blanket in 15 days and loved it. I did change the border slightly - did 12 rows instead of 10 and changed the colours a bit. I also went up to a 4.5mm hook for the first 11 rounds, then back to a 4mm for the last round. I decided to do just 2 trb in every other stitch, with 4 trb in each corner. I was very pleased with the result. Thanks Lucy x

Do you have a colour sequence to make the Aria blanket but with Dune colours?


Just got my yarn today and made a start, the colours are glorious! I’m a leftie so am I right in thinking I will be joining squares from right to left meaning my blanket will be a mirror image?

Enjoying my second attic24 blanket. Great colours and good instruction.....the colours are a real tonic in weird times

The join as you go method has been biting me in the rear today so I am going to do the uk double crochet join instead and still join as I go. Love your colours and its inspired me to make this in my own colours x

Susan Ross

just ordered! I can't wait to get started

Robin Gherasim

What a glorious blanket!! So sorry that Wool Warehouse doesn't ship to South Africa 😢 as I would love to order a set...

Mary Flandin

Bravo, Lucy! You’ve created yet another lovely blanket! I can’t wait to get started. I don’t know what we’d do without you!

Hi I am trying to download colour chart for each square colour and placement but it want happen just keeps say error occurred. had a lot of the wool colours and just ordered what I needed and looking forward to start but worried i will not be able to commence if I cannot get this to download. Any help would be grateful. Thanks So much.


Beautiful colours in this new Aria blanket Lucy, it brings joy to the world and that what we need at this moment.
Still working on two blankets already one is in Mexican colours and one is your Dune only with a little bit different colours because I had some short but there are so many new colours so I mixed them in it...
But this Aria is also at top of my list thank you very much for all your beautiful ideas and paterns!!!

Thank you Lucy. I met you at Yarndale last year and asked if you could do a blanket with squares and you have designed and made a beautiful one. X

The Aria blanket looks beautiful and as I have a granddaughter named Aria I just may have to make it for her.

Love the colours - thank you so much Lucy, you’ve been such an inspiration to us all xx


Dear Lucy,
your new Aria blanket is just beautiful.
Your blog is a joy to read. I really emphasise with you over needing to have alone time in Lockdown.
I am so enjoying crocheting Moorland Walk.
Thanks for sharing your creativity.


Just about to finish my third blanket (harmony,dune,cupcake) having been introduced to your fabulous website during lockdown. Can’t WAIT for the lovely looking Aria to be available. Your sense of colour is amazing.


I love your patterns and wool..I bought some of this wool but find that it is very light weight. Is that right. Or do you double the wool tog for your blankets. Just wondering.
