Who thinks it’s time for a new wall hanging pattern? By my calendar it’s been a whole month since last one (the Mushroom Moon Wall Hanging) and I think it’s well past time for another. And I guess we’re all in luck because this week’s new pattern is the Ghostly Mushroom Wall Hanging.
Now if you’ve been following my blog for a while you know that my favorite time of year is the Fall and my favorite holiday is Halloween. And I like to sneak in some unconventional Halloween patterns here and there to make it so you can have a little bit of Halloween in your life all year long. Me? Oh, I always have my Sally Skulls Wall Hanging up but you can do something a bit more subtle, like this week’s Ghostly Mushroom Wall Hanging, which is a fun little mushroom image… with a haunted secret. Well, it’s barely a secret, it’s very obvious that there are ghosts on the cap of the mushroom. Don’t you just love it?
I was feeling oh so silly when I designed this one. I wanted to make something Halloween-ish and also bring in more mushrooms (did I say or did I say that this was going to be a big year for mushrooms?) and I love how it turned out. It’s weird but fun and still so very colorful. I really hope you all like this one as much as I do.
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.
