You know what? I almost named this post “nothing to be scared of” because this week’s new pattern isn’t really spooky at all. It’s more cute. It’s cutesy Halloween – at least it is in all the bright and playful colors I use to make it 😀 And That’s totally fine with me, there’s always more room for cute. Don’t you agree? If you do… then say hello to the Ghosts of the Blue Lagoon Wall Hanging.
I didn’t originally intend to release a 2nd wall hanging this month but some things had to be shifted around so, it had to be. Personally I’m not mad it at, this new design makes me smile so much and I hope it makes you smile too. And after the response to my Mug’Shroom Wall Hanging, I’m hoping a little bit of spooky helps this one be more liked. And this one is a variation, like a sister piece, to last year’s Ghost in the Mushrooms Wall Hanging, but it’s brighter. Like a fire and ice combo.
For this wall hanging I mostly used a bobbin technique (keeping the yarn attached to the skein or multiple skeins as the case often is) and made sure to turn the piece back and forth rather than in a circle as I worked the rows. I have a couple Reels on my Instagram that show how I change colors from the front and also the back, so if you’re struggling with changing colors those might help you. With all the individual bits of color, I had separate pieces of yarn attached. It did get a little messy but kept on trucking and it worked out. It’s so nice to snip the yarn when the time comes 🙂
And keeping with industry standards, if you’d like written instructions to this pattern you can pick those up in my Ravelry shop. I know talking about money makes people uncomfortable but I split up these patterns this way so that people do have an incentive to pick up the pdf, it helps me to keep making patterns here on my blog. I hope you understand.
Overall, I do hope you like this week’s new pattern. It’s a very fun and colorful take on a Halloween make. It’s for those of us who like Halloween all the time, not just in September and October 😀
Remember to be kind to yourself and others, and wash your hands and masks.
