Thanks for your wonderful tutorials! I'm making my first star dec tonight and I'm missing something. Round 4 ends up with 40 stitches (2 long and 2 short dc x 10) and it seems like round 5 needs 42 stitches (7 stitches x 6). What am I missing?

I'm in the US and using Sugar & Cream cotton but it is missing some of the great colors you have. Can anyone recommend a different cotton yarn available in US or a place to get the Rico cotton? Many thanks.


These are so cute!
I have made a few and posted the photos in the Inspired by Attic24 Flickr group.
Thank you for sharing :-).

You make it seem so easy to make. I know it's far from the truth. Thanks for sharing with us such a detailed tutorial.


I must say that you have the most beautiful blog. The colors you use speak to me and your creations are simply beautiful without being fussy. I am so glad I managed to stumble over here.

Lucy - The first time I found your blog, I needed the teeny weeny flowers pattern, then I just had to start a Summer Garden Granny Square afghan since I have always loved grannies... Then my friend, Ali, and I discovered your crochet bag pattern and when we met this summer in France, we each had one of those working... I have used your perfect instructions SOOO many times, and I am amazed at your patience and natural teaching ability! I love the new decorations, and I am going straight to your paypal donate button, because I am thrilled to support your efforts (and, of course, so you can buy more yarn....teehee!)Thank you again, from Texas with love :o)


Lucy you are right! they are sooo addictive! I wasn't sure about it half way through, but once they are stuffed ... FABULOUS!
Thanks for the tutorial1

Hey Lucy! I just had a look at the pictures, will read it when I find the time and try to make them then too when I find the time. I just wanted to say I love the little coloured bells on the startips, never seen those before! So colourful and cheery!
Once more, thank you for sharing!


I love these! I phoned Lisa from F4Y on Friday - major delays with the Rico!! So I might try with some scrap Stylecraft first. I will def make a little donation to you. Thank you for all your hard work. xxx


I love these!

Can I ask where you get the bells from?


Hi Lucy these are just gorgeous, I can't wait to have a go.
Thanks for sharing your lovely ideas and for all your hardwork.

Hi, the little Christmas decorations are great.Thanks for putting your patterns on your blog. I discovered your blog about a year ago when I was travelling Australia in a caravan and I crochet most evenings. I originally found the pattern for the circular bag and made 3 of those. I have always made granny rugs and I love looking at that site on flickr.I live in Tasmania, the little island south of mainland Australia.I love all crafts, at the moment it is anything to do with buttons. Retro is so big in Australia.

Well as we say
