About Me

  • 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.

Im enjoying this so far. Its great for a beginner like me and i love the colours. Is the away of keeping track of how many stitches there should£ be in each round?

Mary Cerveny

Coming back to the blog notes helped me. That hidden stitch was giving me trouble (nothing new there)! Thanks for this pattern. It's a nice challenge and variation of the Granny Square. This is my second kit from you. Made the chunky bag and love working with Stylecraft Yarn.

I love this ---- I too will be turning my work every row to keep my blanket from that little bit of twist. (I do this on all my square blankets) - and I have a HUGE basket of leftovers that have been just waiting on the correct pattern for using it. Thank you so much for your generosity


I love the pattern and colours. I have ordered the yarn from Wool Warehouse. The packs were sold out but I just ordered the 15 balls from the website. I have done nine rows from scrap yarn to practice the pattern. I have turned the work after every row (which I do on all my granny squares to keep them straight) and the pattern is working out fine. I thought I might be able to post a photo but there isn’t any way that I can see to do that.

Teresa Williamson

Loving the colors and pattern. Please, how to stop twisting. I believe many are having struggles

Maureen MacRae

Hi Lucy could you give me some advice please . (I’m not experienced at crochet!)
Pattern states there are 78 rounds & colour change @ the end of each round.
Also states each stripe is worked in 2 rows does that mean I have 2 rows in every round making a total of 156 rows . Sorry if this is a silly question.
Thank you & your blanket is gorgeous .

Hi Lucy
I am a newbie to crochet and going wrong somewhere on my Yuletide blanket. Can I ask will there always be an even number of spikes after each pattern repeat or does it alternate with each repeat? I hope this makes sense! Hoping you can help with this.
thank you.

Hi Lucy So in love with this Yuletide blanket...alas, yarn is sold out at the moment and I will be notified. Out here on Vancouver Island, Canada, we have had some stormy rains this last week...summer is definitely over and fall is in the air. Working on the Dahlia blanket, so hook in hand. Take Care...Hugs, MO

I am new to crochet and was looking for something to do. A visit to a wool shop in my Mums city and i was introduced to this.

Needless to say, I purchased the wool and I am currently practising before I start. I'm looking forward to getting going with the project.


Hi Lucy!
I just orderd my pack of wool in the Netherlands, my neighbour country at WOLPLEIN.NL
I live in Belgium but they do’nt distribute all coulours of DK Special.!
So now I am exited to receive my xmas woolpack very soon! Happy as a Child in a candyshop!

Love. Love. Love. I woke up early today and placed my yarn order before I event got out of bed.
Your work is such an inspiration and is making a crocheter out of this quilter!!

This is fabulous, have my yarn pack ordered and can't wait to get working on this blanket. Your use of colour and the colour order is as always ingenious. Thank you so much Lucy for continually giving us crocheters such wonderful patterns!!
