Crocheted wallpaper continues


Continuing the task to try to crochet something that resembles my beloved bedroom wallpaper. I went agains my principles, to not buy new material (have to much already in stock) and bought two new colors that are closer to the ones on the wall than the ones I had in my stash. Getting closer now. It starts to look a little bit like the wallpaper .


The snow reflects the sunshine so the colors becomes very vibrant in the image. Took it outside on this sunny "winter"(!?) day at Öland.

Oh my gosh! This is so lovely! It does look just like the wallpaper. Which is the greatest wallpaper ever, btw.

Jag är så fascinerad av virkarbetet att jag kände mig inspirerad att nämna det i mitt virkinlägg på kurbits.nu idag, det är verkligen fint det du gör! Vilken rolig idé och vad fint det blir! Hej!

Thanks everyone! I'm so happy for your positive response. Had some dips with it....now I'm slowly starting to like it too.
Meg; I think it's going to be some kind of garment. I will see :)

A very original idea! Making a crochet pattern from your wallpaper ?! This pattern is looking wonderful. Colors are nearly same with the wallpaper.
