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

Thank you for this brilliant tutorial. Have just finished my second blanket and am thrilled with the lovely finish. Looks much better than the first one which I sewed up!


Thank you so much for sharing will be visiting often


Thank you so much for using so many pictures! I hate reading when I'm trying to do something artsy because I always second guess what the person means! Like one commenter said, I thought I was starting a huge project but I'm so pleased that it seems as simple as 1-2-3!!

Shirley Gagne

Thank you. I thought I was starting a huge project, instead I have a very easy way to finish my blanket.


Thanks lucy, this has just saved my life.

Rowena Corlett

Thanks for this Lucy - I am going to join my harmony blanket this way as I prefer the flat finish.I know it means that the joining becomes rather a major job when I have finished my squares but I think it's worth it x


Moc pěkná ukázka sešívání. Jste šikovná a hodná, že poradíte. Děkuji

Shirley Gagne

Where do I go to read answers? I just found your site today and have browsed a bit. You do beautiful work. Thank you for your help.

I am also unsure about the corner stitch. I haven't started joining my squares yet, but I've been checking up on joining techniques. Yours is perfect. I've bordered all my squares in hdc to have a common color and a flatter seam.

Hi Lucy, I have made the granny stripe blanket and am now making the ripple blanket. I really enjoy your tutorials and patterns. Would it be possible for you to give the granny square pattern that you use. It is different to everybody elses and much nicer looking. I can't quite figure it out from the picture and it is different from the harmony square. Thank you, Kathy Hall


Thank you so much for the clear photos and explanation. I've just joined 4 squares together like this and continued joining until it made a cover for my phone. Thank you so much for the photos.

Thanks for this post. It has been a while and I never used this way but it looks like a great idea.

Della Jackson

I can't get my squares to lay flat once I've joined them. I did block them first so they started off flat.Can anyone help please?


Brilliant thankyou for sharing x

Paula Wylie

love your colours too!

Hazel McFarland

Thank you so much. Great having all the pictures & instructions. All very helpful for a beginner. Ready to give it a try, thank you. Hazel.

Allison M Wiltshire

Wow this is a great tutorial I have lots of squares to put together and now I can get started. Thank you


Thanks for this Lucy.


Instead of stitching, this Slip stitch way of joining is easy...

Jeanne Kahana

Thank you for showing me how to join together the squares. It has been a long time since I have done this. I needed to give my brain a jog.


Thanks for showing me a better way to join my squares. But I have one question: looking at the 4 squares, where the for corners meet can you there seems to be a gap can this be rectified? Lol....I hope you can understand my question. Thanks Robyn.

M. Y. Bimrose
