So I’ve been really into creating these wall hangings.
I made this one for my dad’s office and hs really turned out to look quite amazing. It is a project I had in mind for our collaboration with Knitter’s Pride, so it is a win-win kind of creative endeavor.
Here are the instructions:
Pointy Waves Knitted Wall Hanging
-Any kind of yarn with two or three sizes bigger needles. I used my regular worsted weight yarn and size
-I used my 41 cm 9 (16 in) swivel cord and US 11 (8mm) knitting needles from my new Heirloom Set from the Lantern Moon Collection at Knitter’s Pride.
-Sewing needle, big enough to fit the thick yarn through and between the stick and knitted fabric/
-Found wooden sticks ( mine are ocean driftwood).
I casted on 44 stitches, the Pointy Waves pattern I used calls for a multiple of 14 plus two edge stitches, (14+ 14+ 14 +2= 44)
Four rows of garter (knit all stitches for 4 rows)
4 reps of The Pointy Waves Pattern
Row 1.- k1 *k4, yo, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k2,* k1.
Row 3.- k1, *k1, yo, k2tog, k2, yo, ssk, k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k2tog,* k1.
Row 5.- k1, *k2, yo, ssk, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k4,* k1
Row 7.- k1, *ssk, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2, k2tog, yo, k2, ssk, yo, k1,* k1
6 rows of garter (knit all stitches for 6 rows)
4 rows of knit, purl alternations (rice stitch)
4 more reps of The Pointy Waves Pattern again
Garter for 6 rows casting off on the 6th
A shorter version of this pattern would also look great. So you could simply knit up to the garter part after the first pointy waves set and cast-off (take off stitches).
Then, you can proceed with making Tassels. You can follow a simple tutorial on that HERE.
Also, make sure you check out the new Lantern Moon Collection at Knitter’s Pride. They are elegant and versatile knitting needles and accessories that are handmade with the highest quality materials like Ebony Wood.
