God blessyou and to your family, you have a beautifull house so marvelous decorated. Thankyou very much, from Costa Rica.


Hi Lucy,
I just wanted to tell you that I find your blog very inspiring! When I started crocheting two years ago I searched for patterns that matched my style so that I could make things I really liked, and then I found this place. Just love your stuff! Especially all the bright colors :) Using your tutorials I really learned how to crochet, and even how to make my own patterns.
So thanks a lot!

Lovely. I have already knitted the same and it looks fabulous


I have some little glass bowls that frozen desserts came in that would be perfect for this project. Thanks for the tutorial :)


Lucy, I love this pattern!
I used it to 'flower' up some vases!
Thank you.


Absolutely LOVE them! they look adorable with the yellow pots and daffodils - soo cute! Your home is beautiful!


This concept also works as a great Starbucks cup cosy, rather than using their cardboard hand protectors. You just have to decrease or increase rows if you're working top to bottom or bottom to top, respectively. I have made several of them for friends.


So fun ! I have to try it soon !


¡Qué bonito y tan sencillo!gracias por tu tutorial

I have one tin (carnation milk!) and am going to make it into a Lucy lovely tin tomorrow. Then I expect I will shop for more tins! Thank Lucy x


Thank you so much for this fantastic tutorial. I have only recently taught myself to crochet (and follow a pattern) so mine doesn't look quite as perfect as yours, but I'm pretty chuffed nonetheless. Ahem, Mine is a bit fatter (and consequently taller) where my loose threads have been crocheted in and my seam is a bit squiffy. So some tips on 'perfect finishes' would be fantastic. Thanks again.

Oh, I am so excited by these cute tin cozies!! Thank you so much for the tutorial on how to make them.. I can hardly wait to try them!! Blessings Lucy..


Neat! Absolutely adorable!


Hi Lucy, I've just discovered your blog and am all inspired and excited and ready to fill my little kiwi house with colour! Thanks for the wonderful clear instructions - I started your ripple blanket last week, and might try a tin cover or two when I need a break from rippling :)

I enjoy your blog so much....I drop in frequently to see what you are doing with colors and what the landscape is looking like out your window...I live in the southwest portion of the United States, but have visited your part of the world. I will use your beading technique....I just mailed a little hat to my grandaughter in California...and wish now that I would have put some beads on it....next time I will! Thanks for your wonderful spirit, use of color and positive outlook on life!

I always read your posts abou crochet and they inspire me to do some art at home too.
I saw this project when a blog that i read everyday told about a girl that made some art with your idea, and i was surprised to know that she took the idea from here.
You told about the danger in the sharper edges inside because some projects will be used to save some tings, small things that are in our daily routines, so, why not cut and put some felt inside? It has a nice feeling to it, they're colorful and can be washed! \o/ (with a little care to not damage the fabric, of course)
Yeah, i'm a felt lover, so, don't mind my enthusiasm.
Hope it becomes usefull to you!

so very very smart and just love all the colours


I love it - thank you so much for the inspiration! Can I ask what yarn are you using ? It looks like something i'd love to knit with!

Oh my! Oh my! This is simply amazing! I really want to learn to crochet and now even more! Your tutorial looks really easy to follow. Perhaps with a little extra patience I'll be able to do something like this! :)
PS> Loving your blog - I've pinned this on pinterest! :)


TOO adorable!!!! Thank you so much for the pattern!
