Halloween Wall Hanging-Free Pattern

Trick or Treat?!

I love the texture the herringbone stitch gives, it creates a nice solid fabric, perfect for a wall hanging. This project is a fun introduction to crocheting with beads. Use chain stitch lettering to personalise your wall hanging and finish with fringing. I made these as a fun Halloween decoration but you can also change the colours and letters to make a personalised wall hanging for a children’s bedroom (see photos below). They would work great as a seasonal decoration with a festive theme too!

The Brook Crochet Cowl-Free Pattern

I was so happy to be asked to be a guest blogger for the Bella Coco Crochet blog this month. Thanks so much to Sarah-Jayne for featuring my pattern!

The Brook Cowl was inspired by the beautiful Caron x Pantone yarn I received with one of the recent Crochet Society boxes. This luxurious chunky yarn is a merino acrylic blend, making it super soft and lovely to work with. The wave like stitches make this a therapeutic and really satisfying project that you won't want to put down! I used 1x 100g skein in the Morning Blues colourway, but check out the full range of colours available at lovecrafts.com
