The Calming Crochet Wallhanging

The new Winter 2018 issue of Interweave Crochet is now out! Check out the new beautiful new lookbook format to show all of the designs in the magazine.

When I first submitted this design to the magazine, it was an idea for a scarf. I had some beautiful grey variegated yarn and thought would be interesting to crochet a wave pattern that would really show off the changes in color.

When I heard back from the editor, she asked if I could make a modern wall hanging based on the design instead. I had been making woven wall hangings using our eWoodStory weaving looms, and so I was in the perfect mindset to do it!  They sent me this gorgeous Blue Sky Fibers Bulky alpaca and wool blend to work with, which couldn't have been a better choice for the project. I have since bought more of the Polar Bear color to dye with natural dyes. I will report back to you with my results once I have given it a try!

So here is what I came up with for the issue, the Calming Wallhanging:

  1. Hi Shelby, I'm in Australia and just picked up the Winter Interweave Crochet last week. I noticed your wall hanging in the mag but I think I like your scarf version better!

    Interweave has always been my favourite magazine because of the variety of techniques featured. There are always new challenges to stretch my mind as much as stretching my yarnstash. Looking back over your 2017 posts, it was interesting to read your account of the secret garden activities - I had been following them through Tammy's blog (Daily Treasures). How wonderful that you have a great little creative community where you live.
