“More mushrooms! I must have more!” Has been on repeat in my brain since the beginning of the year. I even said I’m loving mushrooms this year and that it was going to be a big year for mushrooms for me on Instagram back in January and I plan to make good on that promise to me with this week’s new free pattern – the Mushroom Reflections Wall Hanging.
So… oh boy am I making good on my promise, right? This week’s design has not one but 2 mushrooms and I love it so much. I wanted to be a little out there, a little wild, and very abstract with this wall hanging – and so you have a strange maybe outdoors scene with these cute little red capped mushrooms. It’s like “mushrooms in the wild” or something. Although I I wasn’t going for a specific look but I do love green so I wanted to use a couple different ones for this design.
Like most of my wall hangings of the last couple years, I used Brava Worsted from We Crochet/ Knit Picks for it because it’s a great little worsted that has many colors. I like a worsted for a wall hanging because it allows for ease of use, a good dense fabric when I’m done and blocks like a champ. I love to block my wall hangings because it helps them to lay flat and have a great movement to them. Then again, I love to block all my makes so that’s not specific to wall hangings and worsted weight yarn.
As with all my crochet colorwork/ tapestry designs, you can work these in whatever way feels right to you. I use bobbins throughout this design and really didn’t carry yarn unless I absolutely needed to. 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. Carry the yarn, use bobbins, or do what works to make sure you have a finished product that makes you happy. 🙂
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. And I promise there will be more mushrooms to come this year!
Please wear and wash your masks and be kind to each other.
