Oh my, are you excited? I am so excited! Why you might be asking… well it’s because of today’s new pattern. I have been so into this pattern since I designed it that I couldn’t wait for it to come out. And if you follow me on Insta or TikTok you’ve seen this one a lot because I’ve been so into it. So… who’s gonna join me for the Ghost in the Mushrooms Wall Hanging.
Last month I brought you the Ghostly Mushroom Wall Hanging and while I was working on it I loved how it was turning out but in my heart of hearts, I wanted more. I wanted something more Halloweenish. I wanted the bright colors and fun mushrooms but I also wanted a bigger and bolder ghost. So, I designed one. That’s just one of the perks of being a crochet designer I guess (the other is yarn is really soft).
I basically worked backward with this design, graphed out the ghost first and then designed the rest of the piece around it. I wanted movement, kind like the Follow the Moon Wall Hanging, but I wanted to bring in a classic Halloween vibe. At first I had blacks and oranges and the a couple purples, very modern Halloween but it just wasn’t working for me. The gray yarn (Brava Worsted by We Crochet in Cobblestone) was so pretty but still soft that I thought some really vibrant oranges or reds would be the best way to go… and I was right. Man I love when things turn out the way I want them to. Anyway, as I added movement swirls to the colors, the mushrooms were a must and before I knew it, the wall hanging was done. All bright and colorful.
So what do you think? Do you think this would make a great home decor piece for you? Or maybe a pillow or bag (make two, seam them together)? Of course I added a couple stars and some fringe, because I love finishing touches on my wall hangings but you can add as much or as little as you’d like. Just remember to have fun with it my friends!
I’ve said it before, but when it comes to color work you should do what works the best for you. I used bobbins for this particular pattern 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. But I firmly believe that anyone can make a color work project like this, you just need to know how to make a single crochet 🙂 Oh, and a little bit of steam blocking will help straighten your piece right up.
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 is often icky 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.
Anyway, I hope you like this pattern and give it a try. 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 Ghost in the Mushrooms Wall Hanging crochet pattern, without 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.
