Another year and more mushrooms… ya know, that old saying. Well, it’s old in my house because baby, I’m designing mushrooms. And to celebrate Valentine’s Day (a bit early) I’m bring to you the Mushroom Love Wall Hanging crochet pattern.
Now you know, if you’ve been following along for a while, that I love designing for holidays. It gives me a goal, a parameter to work within and that helps to challenge me to make something fun. And with Valentine’s Day coming up next month I wanted to get started on that but I couldn’t figure out what exactly to make. I tried to go the tradtional heart and pink route, like I’ve done with lots of Valentine’s designs before, but it wasn’t working. So I returned to my good ol’ reliable, mushrooms.
There is just something about those cute little red caps that makes me just smile, which is why you can find so many mushie patterns on my blog. But for this new design I wanted to get a little silly with it by hiding some hearts in the mushroom spots, because it is Valentine’s Day themed after all. Hidden hearts are even more special I think 😀 And I had a ball playing with colors and the border effect on this design. I do think I’ll be using it again if people like it.
As always, 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 new mushroom pattern and give it a try. Please wear and wash your masks and be kind to each other.
