May Flowers Blanket Crochet Along Week 7: Daffodil

Daffodils are such a cheery flower that are little rays of sunshine, which is exactly the type of flower I wanted for my May Flowers Blanket! They’re our free crochet flower blanket square of the week for Week 7 of the May Flowers Blanket Crochet Along. With yellow and orange yarn, you create the different dimensions of the daffodil using tapestry crochet. It’s sunshine yellow colors make it a wonderful addition to our crochet flower blanket.

My Inspiration

As I was designing the May Flowers Blanket, I wanted to add a flower that had a lot of sunshine yellow to go with the sunflower block I had made. When I searched for flowers, I came upon a daffodil, and knew it was exactly the type of flower this tapestry crochet blanket needed! The unique shape of the daffodil looks so cool when done in tapestry crochet with the orange yarn as a contrasting color.

The Yarn

For this crochet blanket square, I only used Hobby Lobby I Love this yarn in orange and yellow for the flower, sage green for the stem/leaves, and periwinkle for the background. One of the things I wanted to capture with this flower design, was the three dimensional look that the daffodil has with its 5 pointed petals and the long base of the flower. To get this look I used orange to contrast with the yellow, and give the appearance the the other parts were in shadow so that it looked more three dimensional. I really love how it turned out even when worked in flat tapestry crochet. If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, some other great affordable alternatives I enjoy using are: Caron Simply Soft, Red Heart Super Saver, or Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice.

May Flowers Crochet Along Week 6: Poppy Block

It’s week 6 of the May Flowers Blanket crochet along, and I can’t believe that there are only 3 weeks left after this till the blanket is officially done! This week’s free tapestry crochet flower is a California Poppy. Although it is a simple flower, it’s striking orange color adds beautiful color to this crochet flower blanket. Since it only uses 3 colors with minimal color changes, this block is an easy tapestry crochet pattern that works up in no time.

My Inspiration

As I was coming up with flowers to do for my flower blanket, I knew that I wanted to do my state flower, the California Poppy. It was actually the very first block that I did to see if I wanted to do all of the crochet flower charts that I thought of to make into this graphgan blanket. I wanted to make the design simple, but with contrasting colors that would highlight the simplicity of the poppy. I loved how it turned out so much, that I ended up crocheting the whole blanket!

Love this pattern? Save it to your favorite Pinterest Board!

The Yarn

For this block, I wanted to use tapestry crochet to highlight the simple lines of a poppy using multiple yarn colors. I chose Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in a lovely pastel orange that I have used in my other blocks, and had a great rust color in my stash that I got from Mary Maxim. Then I used the same pastel green of Hobby Lobby I Love this yarn that I’ve been using for all of the blocks in the afghan. As the crochet along for this blanket has been going on, I’ve seen some really beautiful flowers being made in all sorts of yarn brands. Pick your favorite worsted weight yarn, and go with it! Some brands I would recommend would be Red Heart Soft Essentials, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, or Caron Simply Soft.

May Flowers Blanket Crochet Along Week 5: Hibiscus Block

It’s week 5 of the May Flowers Blanket Crochet Along, and this flower is a special one: it’s a hibiscus! This flower is one of my favorite blocks I’ve made for this crochet flower blanket. It was so much fun creating a crochet hibiscus with tapestry crochet! The hibiscus was one of my favorite flowers when I was growing up, and I always loved the tropical vibe that it brought to whatever it was on. It makes a beautiful addition to the May Flowers Blanket, and one more fun free crochet pattern to make!

Inspiration

My inspiration for this design came from my friend Tonja of Pink Plumeria Maui. Tonja and I met on Instagram after we were paired up for a maker gift exchange, and we quickly hit it off as blogging/crocheter buddies. She lives on the beautiful island of Maui in Hawaii, and her designs constantly showcase her love of her home. As I was coming up with flowers for this design, I knew right away that I wanted to create a hibiscus block inspired by one of the flowers that she loves. I absolutely love how it came out!

How to Crochet a Llama Wall Hanging

I don’t know about you, but I love llamas! If something has a llama on it I probably want it! So that makes this crochet llama wall hanging pattern one of my new favorite free crochet patterns I have on my blog. I’ve even found a way to do tapestry crochet with different stitches than the traditional single crochet or double crochet. This is an easy crochet llama pattern that you can easily learn how to do, and make for your home. If you love llamas too then you’ll definitely want to make this fun tapestry crochet wall hanging!

My Inspiration

I don’t know about you, but there is just something about llamas that I just love. Maybe it’s their fluffy fur or long necks, but whatever it is I just want one. It could also be how their close cousin the alpaca is tied to yarn. After I learned how to do tapestry crochet and started creating my own tapestry crochet patterns, one of the first ideas I had was a llama wall hanging pattern with bobbles as the fur. I wanted to find a way to get create with the crochet stitches used in the pattern, instead of the typical ones you use in tapestry crochet. After learning how to also do the lemon peel stitch, I knew I had found the perfect combination of textures for this design. So many fun stitches and things included in this pattern!

Love this pattern? Save it to your favorite Pinterest Board!

The Yarn

To make this wall hanging I used Hobby Lobby Soft & Sleek yarn, in cream and mauve, which made the perfect combination. This yarn ended up having an amazing drape that worked so well with the design of this crochet wall hanging. If you’re not a fan of these colors though, you could easily do this wall hanging pattern with any worsted weight yarn. I can just picture it in a nursery done in cute baby colors. Wouldn’t that be such a great crochet decoration for a kids room? If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, you can easily use any other worsted weight yarn in pastel colors to make this.

The Hello Summer Blog Hop

I created this fun crochet wall hanging for the Hello Summer Blog Hop, which is a super fun summer crochet event where 12 designers have gathered together to create 12 free crochet patterns. There are some amazing designs ranging from crochet home decor patterns, summer crochet garments, and crochet kids toys. There are some amazing patterns that the designers have created! You can get all of the patterns as premium pdfs for just $16, which is 50% off of their original price, so be sure to check out the Hello Summer Pattern Bundle.

ch 5, *in the second ch from your hook using just the yellow yarn, do one bobble, use both yarns again and ch 8, repeat from * two more times, ch 3, fasten off and sew onto neck of the llama as pictured to the right.

How to Sew on the Flowers to the Wall Hanging

How to Assemble the Flowers on the Llama Wall Hanging

  1. Twist flower chain so that it looks like this.
  2. Secure flower together by sewing bottom together.
  3. Position flower on llama, and sew onto wall hanging.
  4. Repeat this for the other flowers, and position them wherever you’d like.

How to Embroider the Eyes

How to Make the Eyes on the Llama Wall Hanging

  1. Start stitching the eyes on by using black yarn. You’ll make a U shape. Make a line with your thread on the right side above the muzzle.
  2. Then do a line across back to the first line.
  3. After that, do another line down to complete the U shape.
  4. Repeat the same for the other eye.

How to Embroider the Nose and Mouth

How to Make the Nose on the Llama Wall Hanging

  1. Start sewing the nose/mouth by making a v towards the top of the muzzle.
  2. Stitch a line coming down from the center of the V to be where the mouth will be.
  3. Make another V to form the mouth, and fasten off.

How to Create the Bottom Decoration

How to Create the Loops on the bottom of the wall hanging

  1. To make the decoration at the bottom of the wall hanging, start by sl st through the bottom left corner.
  2. Then ch 10.
  3. Sk 6, and sl st in the next st.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 all the way across. You’ll sk 7 st on the very last repeat of this. Then fasten off and weave in ends.

How to Assemble the Tassels on the Llama Wall Hanging

5. To make the fringe, cut 7 strands of yarn about 10 inches each.

6. Then create a U shape in front of one of the chain loops you made.

7. Pull long strands behind the chain loop, and through the U you made. Pull all the way through and tighten to secure it. Repeat steps 7-10 4 more times. I did 3 different colors of fringe.

How to Secure Wall Hanging to the Stick

How to Secure Wall Hanging to Stick

  1. To secure the wall hanging on your stick. Position the stick at the top of the wall hanging. Thread your needle with yarn, loop it behind the stick, and back up through the wall hanging.
  2. Repeat this all the way across till you’ve secured the entire top of the wall hanging to your stick. Then you can cut another long strand of yarn, tie each end to the stick, and you’ll have a string to hang your finished wall hanging!

Now you are all finished with your crochet Llama wall hanging! Don’t you just love it??? I totally want to make another one in different colors and then I could have some llama twins. Be sure to tag me @eclairemakery if you make one of these wall hangings! I’d love to share it! And keep a look out for the other crochet designs as a part of the Hello Summer Crochet Blog Hop!

May Flowers Blanket CAL Week 4 – Zinnia Block

Week 4 of the May Flowers Blanket Crochet Along is here! How has time gone by so fast, and we are already working on the fourth block of the May Flowers Blanket. This week’s block is a Zinnia! As I looked for different summer flowers to include in this blanket, a red zinnia with pink edges stood out to me, and I knew that I needed to create a crochet zinnia pattern as a part of my tapestry crochet blanket.

My Inspiration

Zinnias are such a unique flower that they were exactly the flower I was look to create a crochet pattern for! I’ve found that I’m always drawn to flowers with lots of color, and as I browsed the different colors of zinnias a red one with pink tips on the petals caught my eye. Red and pink always are my favorites, so this was the perfect look to have for my crochet flower blanket!

Love this Blanket? Save it to your favorite Pinterest Board!

The Yarn

For this block, I found one of my favorite yarns that I’ve used for this tapestry crochet blanket. While I was at Hobby Lobby searching for yarn, I found a red yarn that had pink flecks speckled throughout it. I was in love with it right away! It gives such great texture for this crochet flower, and I love the way it compliments the pink yarn I chose for the edges. If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, I found some awesome substitutes: Red Heart Ombre in Anemone or Sea Coral. You don’t have to do it in red though! Any colors of yarn would work for this beautiful tapestry crochet flower!
