Parisian Champagne Throw

ILC_August_small-56

Motifs built upon motifs create a whimsical and visually entertaining throw. Four small motifs come together, and are bordered to create a larger motif. As the squares dip slightly in the center of the side, these are left un-joined to create an open effect. The construction of this throw allows it to be a join-as-you-go that is still very portable.

Tree Full of Friends” is the perfect toy for busy little hands. This 20″ x 24″ crochet wall hanging of a tree against a bright blue sky includes several pockets on the tree in which to tuck an amigurumi owl, bluebird, and squirrel. Children will enjoy popping the flower petals onto oversized buttons on stems and in the tree. This colorful toy, which also doubles as a children’s room decoration, offers a great opportunity to use up stash yarn.

We are making this wall hanging over the course of three issues, and in this third and final installment, we will cover crocheting the squirrel amigurumi and flowers and finishing the assembly.
