Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.


Do you sell the granny squares 6 x 6 ?

hi lucy thank you soo much for this pattern. you're a big help to me....


Lucy, Love this pattern and have tried it, but I end up with the same problem every time!
My flower has 8 petals, but as you look at them each petal has two 'parts', apart from my first one which is made up of 1tr rather than a bobble so it only looks like it has one 'part' ( hope that makes sense!)
The pattern says to do a treble followed by 7 bobble stiches, so I get an odd petal every time. What on earth am I doing wrong....?


I've just spent ages googling for the granny square pattern that I wanted to make and am so pleased to have come across this. It's exactly what I had in mind and I'm now addicted to making them. Thanks so much for sharing.


Lucy, your life in the north of England sounds glorious! I share a number of your interests, including sewing, crochet, & gardening. I also teach sewing, patchwork, & crochet. I love this granny square. You've done a brilliant job of creating it, and have written an awesome tutorial to go with it. If you were my daughter, I'd be telling you how proud I am of you! I look at lots and lots of patterns on lots and lots of blogs, but they rarely captivate me as yours has done. May God (whom you haven't mentioned in your interests list, but I hope He's behind all this!) bless you with continued happiness in your life!!

Hi, I love your blog always has nice things here, beijokas ...



Dear Lucy, thank you so much for this pattern. I already made several blankets using these squares, you really are an inspiration. Got a question tho, and I really really hope you can find the time to answer me because after making 3 blankets I suddenly got very very confusing: round 4 you start making 4 chains, countng as 1tr + 1 chain. The rest of the corners however all heve 2 chains.. Am I mistaken? It seems off but it may be me. Hope so much to hear from you and be reassured :) Big hug Rosa

Lucy ~ Just wanted to leave you a small note (along with everyone else). I taught myself to crochet a few years ago and just recently started getting more into it. I refer to youtube a lot and feel pretty confident that I'm getting better. I just finished a ripple afghan for my boyfriends niece and people went crazy over it. I decided my next project would be for me. Fell in love with making Granny's. I've been researching trying to come up with the right pattern and they're either too boring and straight forward or way too complicated. Until I found your blog. I absolutely love everything you make. Not just the patterns but the color choices too. So bright and so fun. Anyway, just kept coming back to this blog in all my research. Thanks for sharing your work and for being a good teacher. You speak my language with the way you break down your pattern, and its appreciated. Sometimes just looking at a crochet pattern and all the abbreviations make me say "forget it". Best blog out there and as soon as I can i'll be donating!! Great patterns. Thanks!

Hi Lucy! Thank you so much for posting your patterns. My Grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was 9 years old. I love crocheting but really didn't do it a lot. I have recently started again and I am hooked. (pun intended) I came across your blog by accident while looking for free patterns. I love your beautiful bright colors! I am so drawn to them. I have crocheted many things but have never made a granny square. Seeing all of your colorful things has made me want to try it. I printed out your instructions and can't wait to get started. Thanks again for all the help you give your fellow crocheters. You use your God given talents in a wonderful way and I for one thank you.

Hi Lucy,
I just have to thank you for helping me FINALLY make sense of crochet! It's only taken me 30 something years for it to click :-)
Your blog is inspiring me to add more colour into my home & I've ordered the 'Attic24' pack online, ready to begin my first crochet project - the summer garden throw... Can't wait x


Hi, I absolutely love this!!! I saw it today and I have decided to use cotton, I love all the colors. I am wondering if when using cotton if you used maybe an H hook size? just wondering....thanks again.....

Tracy Berg

Hi Lucy,
I love your blog and tutorials. Thank you so much for sharing them...I have learned so much. I just finished a pillow in your Summer Garden Granny Square pattern to make a spring / Easter pillow and it turned out beautifully. My family is quite impressed. I just have a question...what type of yarn do you use to achieve such beautiful colour combinations? Tracy
