April 17-23, 2022: Wall Hangings Bundle

I hope everyone has been enjoying my Designaversary Celebration (don’t forget to enter the Grand Prize giveaway on YouTube)! April has gone by so quickly already!

Last week’s contest winner has been notified on my Facebook Page. This week’s contest (expired) will be drawn from my email list subscribers! If you’d like to get in on that, sign up below:

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Last week’s bundles were HUGE! One bundle had 94 patterns, the other bundle had 73. They were all squares (designed to be joined together as blankets), but if you saw my last post you’ll know there’s so much more you can do with a square!

This week I am featuring my wall hanging patterns!

These patterns were designed to decorate your wall (but I also love that you can really put any of my designs on your wall). They all come with written instructions and charts for BOTH the interlocking crochet method and the overlay mosaic crochet method (like ALL of my patterns).

My selection of wall hanging patterns. Fa La La crocheted by Altona Newcombe, Parisian set crocheted by An Anonymous Squirrel, Blooming Owl crocheted by me

What makes these patterns different? Mostly, the yarn suggestion.

Using a 1 – fine / fingering weight yarn keeps these projects smaller and lighter than my normal 4 – medium / worsted weight recommendation. You’ll use a smaller hook as well.

Of course, you can use fingering weight yarn on any project but these patterns specifically include instructions for attaching them to a wooden dowel for you to hang on the wall.

There are many ways to join your project to a dowel. Blooming Owl Wall Hanging was designed so you could tie the mosaic fringe on the top of the piece to the dowel and then hide it behind.

Fringe gets tied together and then hidden at the back of the wall hanging. The piece is sideways in the photo.

For my other patterns, or if you use the interlocking crochet technique where there is no fringe, I suggest a simple whip stitch.

I also really like the way it looks when you create tabs to go over the dowel. I added 3 sections of single crochet tabs to my single-width sample of Glacial Warmth (a blanket pattern, not a wall hanging pattern).

I also have these two Mountain squares on my wall (these are also not wall hanging patterns but, as you can see, anything can get hung on the wall!).

Mosaic sample at the top uses the lighter blue for the main color (MC) whereas the interlocking sample below uses the darker blue as the MC.

Details on the Bundle

I have 5 patterns designed as wall hangings and for this week only you can get them ALL in one bundle!

The bundle deal gets you 60% off! *Cue the jaw-drop!* But it’s only available on Ravelry and the offer ends 11:59pm CST April 23, 2022.

If you don’t want ALL of them, you can also buy them individually and you’ll get 30% off. The 30% off offer is valid on Etsy and Ravelry until 11:59pm CST April 23, 2022; no code needed, no eBooks included.

They are each available separately (the Ravelry and Etsy links are listed above), and the three Parisian designs are also available as a set (eBook on Ravelry or eBook on Etsy). The Parisian eBook represents a 23% savings versus buying each pattern individually; normally that’s a good deal, but this week (if you’re not going to grab the Wall Hangings Bundle at 60% off) you’re better off grabbing each pattern individually so you can get the 30% off!

Why even bother with such a small bundle?

Well, this Designaversary Celebration month is intended to take you on a journey of discovering more about me! And the first wall hanging I ever made also happened to be the one I got published in a magazine!

Unfortunately, my crocheted Eiffel Tower got lost in the mail back to me in Canada from Crochet Now! magazine in the UK.

But, besides that, I am proud of these designs and wall hangings seem to be one of the preferred ways crocheters can show off their talent so it’s time for you to show off your talent!

Next week it will be all about blankets!

Une Autre Fleur

This is a 3rd companion to my Eiffel Tower Wall Hanging and my Fleur-De-Lis Wall Hanging. A friend found a beautiful design in her pillow and I tried to capture a piece of it here. She helped me name it too! If you don’t speak french, I will tell you it means “Another Flower”. The Fleur-De-Lis is a classic french image and although the image is a bit abstract the translation is a lily flower so this new wall hanging is simply another flower.

You may remember, my Eiffel Tower pattern has been published in Crochet Now! magazine. The rights will revert back to me in a few months and I will publish it to Ravelry and Etsy at that point. The sample in the image below was crocheted using the interlocking technique and only uses two colors (the original in the magazine is overlay mosaic and has 7 colors!).

The Eiffel Tower Wall Hanging – with just two colors

I have created an eBook Bundle for these three Parisian Wall Hangings. You can purchase the bundle now and it will be updated to include the Eiffel Tower at the end of August 2021. Updating is easier on Ravelry but if you don’t use Ravelry I have made it available on Etsy as well.

You can see in this image below that my tester used 2 wooden dowels for each wall hanging – you can do the same, or you can just put one at the top. I love seeing creativity and I always think of my patterns as guidelines or suggestions rather than strict rules. Make your project your own!

Bundle of 3 wall hangings: Eiffel Tower, Fleur-De-Lis, and Une Autre Fleur

On Ravelry: if you already purchased the Fleur-De-Lis Wall Hanging you will receive a retroactive discount on the eBook bundle – it happens automatically.

On Etsy: I have already contacted the individuals who purchased the Fleur-De-Lis

For “Une Autre Fleur Wall Hanging”:

You will receive one file containing:

  • the interlocking pattern (including instructions for adding fringe and attaching a dowel)
  • a one-page chart (101 x 109)
  • the overlay mosaic pattern (including instructions for an optional envelope border and attaching a dowel)

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet uses single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row. The back is striped but often gives a faint impression of the pattern on the front (sort of like illusion knitting). See an example here.


I have YouTube tutorials available for both crochet methods! Follow this link to get to my YouTube channel and find my other social links.
