One final wall hanging for 2022? Don’t mind if it I do. And this time, it’s not going to feature mushrooms… I know, I was as surprised as you are. But I think you’re gonna like the new Moonlight Trees Wall Hanging.
Some time in November I got an itch to make another wall hanging. I just love the freedom and the joy of making wall hangings and using what’s in my stash. But I wanted to make something winter-ish and I kinda got stuck on that. I went back and forth on mushrooms that were icey blue and stuff like that but it just didn’t feel right. So I decided to start from a different perspective, nature yes but how about trees this time. And so the image you see here built into a wall hanging.
I was actually kinda nervous on how this one would turn out. I wasn’t sure if the trees and the moon were going to look boring so I added the clouds and that brought on the worry that it was going to look too cartoon. I honestly went back and forth on this design until I was like, “nope, that’s it, I’m going to just try it out and if it looks bad it won’t be my first design to do poorly.” But I like how it turned out. Especially after I went a little wild with stars, giving it a real nature feel. I just love it looks to be honest 😀
As 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.
