The Akelej Wall Hanging is a gorgeous contemporary design inspired by the fauna of the Island on which I live, my beautiful Ornö. My love for flowers are everlasting and with this make I wish to take them to the next level by joining them as I go; from one flower to the next, and ending it all with beautiful wooden beads and raw tassels.
This delicate wall hanging is a wonderfully quick make and ideal for stash busting.
The written pattern was first published in the Botanical Issue 123 of Inside Crochet Magazine and is now available here from us as a single pattern with both US- and UK-Terminology.
The finished Akelej Wall Hanging floral section measures 50 cm x 50 cm. The drop is approximately 115 cm from top of the hanging string down to the bottom of the lowest tassel.
For this make you’ll need:
Yarn in four different colors. You can use any DK weight cotton. Try different yarn weights and materials for different sized hangings.
