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

Dear Lucy, I haven't crocheted for a couple of years (!). But I do want to say that I learned how to crochet by happening upon your website and making several of your patterns. This was during a time period after I had suffered a severe injury and learning how to crochet (and making these beautiful things) brought me much comfort. So, thank you for that. I now want to make an afghan for my son who moved away after Christmas. I knew he'd really like "Woodland Ripple" and so I ordered in a double yarn pack. He wanted large size. I need help! I attempted to cast on 426 stitches and do the single crochet across the chain. All week long -- after several attempts -- I always fell short of the 425 single crochets. This afternoon I posted the question to ask for advice from Ravelry, and received a few suggestions. One was to complete the row in the "foundation single crochet" manner -- where it is all done at the same time. I know you know what I mean. Will this work for your pattern?

Maria Ketch

Is there a tutorial to watch. Just bought pack...I work better following someone doing it. Is this available? Or are instructions available in american version...this is how I leaned using american stitches. Please help I want to get started

Karen Baker

Is there a pattern for the leaves? Thank you.

Marilyn Sneddon

hi Lucy, I am just printing the Woodland Ripple blanket pattern and hoping I have the skills to do it in Australian drought colours. I am using Bendigo Woollen Mills Australian wool and I want to thank you for your generosity in providing all this information free. I will keep following via the Facebook group and may try one of the packs if I can nail this one! again thanks


Hi Lucy i am on row 4 and my 3rd trebles are not aligning up at all, 1-3 rows had all the correct numbers of stitches so what am i doing wrong?
Love Emma

Barbara Clark

Hi and thank you for such clear instructions on such a pretty blanket. Can I ask you if your stitches are British or American? Thanks
Barbara Clark


I'm interested to know if anyone gets a response to their questions? There are lots of questions but I don't see any answers!!! Are the answers not shown?

Hello Yvonne in South Africa have you been able to get to colour recipe for row 37 onwards?

Yvonne Pitter

I am in South Africa and unable to download colors for ripple blanket from row 37 onwards- Can anyone email - row 36 was lime color

Sue Martin

This may seem like a daft question but should it make any difference crocheting your patterns if one is left handed. I have been trying to make the Woodland one and am really struggling. I have crocheted before so am not a complete beginner. Any advice would be appreciated.

Donna Woodbridge

Hi I have just ordered the woodlands colourpack and I am looking at your woodlands ripple blanket. Do you do a talking

Margaret  (Johannesburg, South Africa)🇿🇦

Thank you for this wonderful pattern. I have had such fun making a single blanket. The pattern was easy to follow and works up beautifully. How do I post a picture of what I’ve made?

Sheelagh Franklin

Could you tell me why you have to go through both loops on the first row?

Suzanne Scarola

Is there a good way to print these instructions with a minimal amount of paper? I am a novice and especially love your wonderful illustrations! thank you!

Mary Lloyd Jones

Hi Lucy ,is the tutorial still available for the Hydrangea blanket....I bought the pack but still haven’t had the time to start. Love your blog. Don’t ever stop ,what a fan club you have. X

Linda Burris

I am working on the Hydrangea and would love to start the Woodland next. I love the Batik colorway by Stephanie Harris that you showed. Is there a way to find her yarn info? Colors, amount required etc? I suppose I can go by the photo if necessary to figure it out. I love everything about your blog Thank you for everything...you are amazing Lucy

Hello MaryJo
Somebody taught me something new this week – select the text you want to print (left click with the mouse and drag), then right click the mouse and select print from the menu. It works a treat!
Hope that helps, #Lucyxx


My yarn arrived today and I must say I love the attention that is paid to the packaging of this beautiful yarn and it was shipped via lightning bolts! It arrived in 2 days! I going to start the tension sample now. But I have a question. Is there a pdf file or any file that allows me to print off the pattern? My eyes get extremely weary looking at a computer screen for long periods of time. It won’t matter if I can’t print it off I’ll figure it out, but it can’t hurt to ask! Thanks again I’m excited to get this started!


I want to follow your comments but when I look at the comments I get a huge page of single spaced code. I’m hope by posting this it solves my problem. I’m finishing the Moorland blanket and can’t wait to start the Woodland. Love your site!

Katy Williams

I've completed my sample (starting chain I'm using a 5 hook, and the rest is a 4.5) and it's wonderful! Very intuitive pattern in my opinion. Love all of your work! Thank you!!

Heather Coady

Here I go again I was looking forward to getting started but many holdups with doggies,grandchildren and life in general! I need energy! Started sample but really want to start blanket measured so far and coming out at 17 1/2 cms sojust going for it if I run out of wool will either buy more or go short as don’t want t work with smaller hook! Lucy , you have put in such a lot of work how are you paid for it? This is my first time with you though I did manage some Autumn leaves to finish end of year!

Ruth Hamilton

Hi Lucy and congratulations on your awards, well done.
Am I just not looking properly, I cannot see a print option for the patterns on your site anywhere?

Heather Coady

I typed out a message but it wouldn’t go so will try again if this does

Sandra Stenhouse

Hi Lucy

Really enjoying how the colours sing together. Thank you
