A project for a nightowl – crocheted wallpaper

I adore bright colored patterns (and I like to mix them). In the back you see my beloved bedroom wallpaper. A flea market find from Amsterdam. It’s a vintage kitchen wallpaper, presumably from the 60′s or 70′s. It is my favorit pattern of all. Suddenly I thougt it looked little like a crocheted old-fashioned beadspread – and then that night was spoiled:-) I had to make a test. Traced it and made a sketch, found the right colored yarn in my boxes and started to crochet after the traced flowers.

This is how far I came with the project for now. I’m not sure if I like the big flower. Going to try a couple of other ways to solv it, less three-dimetional.

    Hejhej!
    Sschnyggga grejer! Handarbete är för mig en slags pågående tyst revolution, en slow-mood rörelse. Vi vägrar anpassa oss efter den alltmer uppskruvade arbetsmarknaden, vi vägrar vara stresståliga, flexibla och serviceinriktade..!

    Håll virknålen varm i höstmörkret!
