A few months ago I started my most complex corner to corner design, it ended up being absolutely enormous!! I thought my tiger wall hanging was complicated but that was nothing compared to this!!
It was my partner, Matt, who suggested I do Stripe from Gremlins. So I got to work drawing up the graph chart for it, it took me an entire day to get the chart finished but that was nothing compared to how long it took to crochet it!
It took around 150 hours to complete, each row took the best part of an hour and there were 137 of them! I was using aran weight yarn too so the size was a lot bigger than it would have been if I’d have used DK. I used fluffy yarn for the mohican and love the effect it gave.
I attached it to a bamboo cane as it’s so large and heavy, it’s not hanging in our living room but we might need to get a bigger house soon as we don’t have enough room for it!!
I absolutely love working on big pieces like this, I love the entire process of drawing up the design then seeing it as a finished piece of wall art.
I’ve already drawn up my next big one too, I won’t tell you so it’s a surprise but it is a character out of another 80’s movie, they are just the best!!
