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 will be drawn from my email list subscribers! If you’d like to get in on that, sign up below:
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).
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.
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!).
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!
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.
- Parisian Wall Hangings eBook (Ravelry) (Etsy)
- Blooming Owl (Ravelry) (Etsy)
- Fa La La Wall Hanging (Ravelry) (Etsy)
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!
