Dear Lucy! Many thanks to you for your magnificent Happy Flower! I live in the North-West of Russia. I enjoyed reading about your colorful joyful world. I tied such a flower and hang it on the wall in my apartment, every day I will admire it and thank you for the wonderful idea. Sorry for the automatic translation.


J'adore, c'est magnifique
et ce tutoriel est bien expliqué
Thank you


Can you use acrylic yarn for this projects?

Thank you so much for this awesome pattern! I am obsessed with Happy Flowers and can't stop crocheting them!! I made a whole bunch for my family and friends for holiday gifts this year! The only change I made was using spray starch instead of glue, but I think they came out OK.


thank you so much Lucy for your beautiful patterns. I had to retire early due to my health and had taught myself basic crochet before hand. your patterns are so colourful and combining colour and crochet is great therapy for me. you are an excellent teacher and your tutorials are so easy to follow. your efforts are much appreciated and I've just bought you a cup of coffee and hope that others that enjoy your work also do the same. thanks again from Australia :)

To the lady who mentioned the dutch translation and copy of this pattern. I speak Afrikaans and as such am able to read and understand some Dutch - there is mention that she translated the pattern from attic24. "Het originele patroon en de foto uitleg kun je vinden op de website van Attic24" - translated roughly means, "You can find the original pattern and photo on the website of Attic24"

Lucy, I hope you get this message. I was just following links found on Pinterest - and found this link: http://haakinformatie.nl/patroon/haakpatroon-vrolijke-bloem-hanger/
It is an EXACT COPY of your Happy Flower Decoration! I knew immediately it was yours because I made one, following your pattern, for my granddaughter! (it is hanging happily on the wall in her room.)
It upsets me so much to see this kind of piracy! Though I could not translate (think it's in Dutch), I did not see Attic 24 - or Lucy - mentioned anywhere in this article.
I hate when people do this! She could, in the very least, give you credit for the inspiration to make this....
I'd like to see these people, who do this, prosecuted for internet piracy - because that's what it is!
Thank you, again, Lucy for all you give to us in color and hooking inspiration.

Thank you for all the work you have put into making the happy flower tutorial. I have started with the stems cos I thought they would be the most difficult, anyway getting there usually I`m a bit hopeless but with your instruction not bad!
Sent you a very little something but better than nowt as we say in Lancashire, (UK). Live In Derbyshire now in the Peak District, A little windy today. I`ll carry on & again thank you.


This is an amazing tutorial ! I realy thank you! I'm a crocheter from Cyprus :)

This is so pretty. I will be making good use of my cotton stash by making these. I love your website.

Sandi Leonard

I love this.

Lorrie Murphy

This is a great lesson. Love the bright flower and I hope I can make some.

I am reading the directions for the HAPPY FLOWER Decoration on your website.

In looking your ST stitch conversions, UK to US, you give the directions for the UK DC then note that it is the same as US SC. That IS INCORRECT. It is the same as the US DC.


Hi Lucy..

What is the size of Crochet needle you used?



I love this pattern. I am not very experienced, but found the tutorial made it easy and also great fun to do.
Lucy, I will gladly pay for it. I guess there will be a link to contribute somewhere on your website? One question about the stiffening: I made rather a mess of the glueing by put it on too thickly (in spite of what you said!). Do you think an strong interfacing would do the same job? Otherwise I will proceed doing my second Happy Flower ..... and Happy it looks, too!
Many thanks

Dear Lucy,
What a stunning design you have created with this flower ornament. One day I hope to be able to make one myself, when I have time! In the meantime you might be interested to view my colourful merino yarn in 64 brilliant colours on www.biggandesign.com, You must love colour and to create beautiful crochet or/and knits as much as I do. And what a brilliant instructor you are!
