“2 Wall hangings in 2 weeks? Amber, you must be losing it.” Is what you might be saying… but if you’re not, please skip that part. But it is true, last week’s new free pattern was the Cute Hearts Wall Hanging and this week you get the Heart Wave Wall Hanging but I swear I have a good reason for it. I just like wall hangings.
Ok, technically that’s not a “good reason” but it is a reason. I love designing wall hangings and they’re so fun to make. So I keep making them. Also, have you seen my projects people on these? I love seeing all the colors and bits of creativity people add to make these unique. It fills me with such joy. And you know what, it doesn’t hurt anyone so I’m gonna keep leading with joy.
This design is sort of a mash up of a Valentine’s Day pattern and the Cool Waves Wall Hanging or Follow the Moon Wall Hanging that I released last year. I thought because love is the “music of the heart” that the waves and lines here would read like a lyrical visual metaphor for love. I might be getting a bit overly with this but sometimes that’s how I work out designs in my head. I like to create a story for myself and build form there. But now I’m wondering if that makes sense to anyone else but me… hmm… Oh well. It still looks cool and that’s really at least worth a C+ right?
As with all my crochet colorwork/ tapestry designs, you can work these in whatever way feels right to you. I have floats on the of this design in a couple spots (especially where I created the white spot on the heart) but for the most part I used bobbins for this pattern. And like I say often on Instagram, when it comes to how you work color it doesn’t matter what you call it, you do what feels good to you. I don’t ever follow just one technique to change and carry colors, sometimes I carry them for a couple sts and then drop the color altogether and work the rest of the way across the project. As long as you steam block (which I always do for colorwork) then it’s going to be a-OK. Don’t just take my word for it, give it a try yourself.
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. It’s definitely more involved than last week’s heart wall hanging but it is a good step up, a good challenge if you’re into it.
Please wear and wash your masks and be kind to each other.
