Today’s pattern release is extra special because its a DOUBLE pattern release! You’ll get both the ‘Wild Moon’ & ‘Stay Wild Moon Child’ wall hanging patterns. I designed them to be the same size so you could hang them side by side as a statement piece, stagger them, or hang them separately! From the nursery to the living room, these wall hangings will be the perfect addition to any moon lovers decor!
This series of patterns was created for one of my dear friends. She’s a fellow Moon Child and a wildly creative soul. She’s one of the people that the universe placed in my path at the perfect time. If you think you can’t find real friendships through social media – you’re wrong! We originally bonded over the fact that we were both artists, then we found out that we were pregnant just 6 weeks apart. When we met for the first time, everyone around us thought we had been friends for years because the connection was so instant. Her birthday is coming up and when I think of her, I think of the moon. After I showed her the first design (Wild Moon) – she suggested making a second one the exact same size – then they could hang over her bed like a headboard! I loved the idea and the challenge was accepted! The Stay Wild Moon Child design was born!
For the both these designs (and most of my other tapestry patterns) I’m using Loops & Threads Impeccable. I love to use an affordable, stiff yarn for my wall hangings. We want the tapestry to hold its shape for months/years on the wall, so save that fancy, gorgeous draping yarn for a garment! I always make my designs in black and white to showcase the design but please feel free to use any creative color combinations you like! The Impeccable line has SO MANY beautiful colors to choose from. Comparable yarns for substitutions include:
- Red Heart Super Saver
- Big Twist Value
- Phentex Worsted
- Bernat Super Value
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!
