The Mountains Are Calling – Tapestry Crochet Wraps

Inspiration:

I’ve always had a deep connection with mountains. They have an instantly calming and grounding effect on me. I wish I could say that this idea came to me on my own – BUT if I’m being honest (which I always am!) this design was inspired by YOU, a follower! I had a message come through Etsy wondering if I had more mountain theme wall hangings in the works and suggested the quote ” The mountains are calling and I must go.” After creating the You’ll Move Mountains Blanket, I knew trying to squeeze the word “mountain” on a wall hanging wouldn’t fit… unless it was HUGE. However, that little seed had been planted in my mind and I couldn’t stop thinking about how to make it work.

I originally designed the bold version but I felt like maybe it was yelling at you. Haha. So I designed the cursive version…. Then I couldn’t decide which one I loved more! After sending out a little survey to family and friends, the poll was divided. “Can you offer both?” What a fantastic idea! Why not do both?? So that’s what I did. I hope between the two styles, you find one that speaks to you!

The Yarn:

I used a combination of L&T Impeccable and Craft Smart Value for both designs. You can use any worsted weight (4) yarn that you love! An acrylic yarn is best, as it’s affordable and washes well. Get creative with your color combinations!

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Tapestry crochet is done using the basic single crochet stitch, and a technique of holding 2 strands of yarn. The tutorial below will walk you through all the basics while you make a little tree sampler! If this is your first time trying tapestry crochet, I highly recommend making the tree sampler first. This will give you some practice with holding both strands of yarn and getting your tension right before starting a large project.
