Did someone ask for another wall-hanging? Well, I really hope so because that’s what you’re gonna get this week. I hope your ready for like the new Cool Tree Wall-Hangings crochet pattern, because it’s ready for you!
So… this week’s new pattern kind of combines some different vibes from my previous wall-hangings – it’s got cool waves of color but a recognizable landscape and lots of colors so you could make it a fun stash buster. And it’s a fun little low-key addition to your Halloween decorations (or you could be like me and keep it up all year long). Don’t worry, if you want more bold Halloween designs I also have those here: Falloween designs.
Now I couldn’t decide what kind of wall-hanging I wanted to do for Halloween. Did I want something more typically Halloween or something more subtle? I’m often the last to know, if we’re being honest. And I did have a rough draft of a pumpkin and a cat but, alas, it will have to wait for another time. I picked the more subtle design because I thought this one would have more of a broad appeal (because you do have to worry about a thing like that as a designer). It also gave me a good opportunity to flex my design muscles, don’t you just love that tree?
And I do want to say, like my other wall-hangings, this one isn’t purely tapestry or intarsia but somewhere in between. I like to use bobbins but also carry yarn if I need to. I am a big fan of “do what seems right to you in the moment” that will give you a good outcome on this pattern. So if you need to carry the yarn up the back, fasten off, or use loads of floats (which I did, let me tell you the back is pretty wild), then you totally should do it. I just hope you have a good time working this pattern.
Overall, I do hope you have a good week and like this new design.
Please wear and wash your masks and be kind to each other.
Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by We Crochet for the purposes of designing the Cool Tree Wall-Hanging crochet pattern, with compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I always enjoy using this yarn, I’ve used it many times and it’s durable and colorful worsted weight yarn. If you purchase yarn through any of the links in this post, I will be compensated.
