These wall hangings are created using Tapestry Crochet for the background.
Tapestry Crochet is similar to regular crochet, except that two or more strands are worked at the same time to create a colourful fabric. The colours not being used are carried along the top of the previous row. Double crochet (US-single crochet) stitches are worked as you would normally, through both loops of the previous row and over the top of the carried colours.

The flowers use florists wire and wadding to create a 3-D effect and are appliqud to the background. Nearly all of the flower parts are worked in dc (US-sc) and, provided you take the instructions step by step, are not complicated.

Materials: Natura Just Cotton, Florists wire. The florists wire I use is 30cm (12inch) lengths of gauge 28. It is available from most florists or on eBay.
Equipment: 2.50mm hook, needle, two hanging rods.
Tension: 13 dc x 15 rows to 5 cm square.
Finished Size: The back panel measures about 23 x 61 cm (9 x 24 in).

Sunflower Head Crochet Pattern

I have used florists wire and wadding to create a 3-D effect and keep the petals in place.  The centre is kept in shape with the inside of an embroidery hoop.  The back is just as pretty as the front so it can be hung where you can see both sides if you would like to.

Materials:  DMC Petra size 5 - one of each in 53854, 5434, 5938, 5700 and 3 in 5742. Florists wire, m wadding, 30cm square of felt, 25cm embroidery ring.

Equipment:  2.50mm hook, needle.

Tension:  22 dc x 26 rows to 10 cm square.

Finished Size:  The Sunflower measures about 51cm (20 inches) across.

Clematis Crochet Pattern

The Clematis uses a few different techniques in its creation.  These include Thread Painting, short row crochet and loop stitch.

While making your clematis, please remember - Size Matters! You can make your frame as big or as small as you wish. However, the bigger you make it, the more stems you have to make and the more leaves you have to make - you get the idea.

The first part of the pattern is not specific instructions but guidelines for planning and creating any size frame and the stem system to fit it.

The leaves, flowers, buds and fluffy heads are conventional patterns with plenty of pictures to help explain some of the more difficult bits.

For more information you can download the colour requirements.

These wall hangings are created with a unique combination of Thread Painting and Tapestry Crochet to produce the effect of a silhouette against a sunset.   Thread Painting is a way of changing colours to produce a shaded effect.   Tapestry Crochet is similar to regular crochet, except that two or more strands are worked at the same time to create a colourful fabric.

The large wall hanging measures about 48 x 72 cm (19 x 28 in) and is made with size 5 thread and a 2.50mm hook. The small wall hanging measures about 36 x 48 cm (14 x 19 in) and is made with size 8 thread and a 1.50mm hook.

Materials:  DMC Petra in colours: Black, White, Lemon, Gold, Orange, and Red.
One ball of each colour is enough to make one wall hanging, however, as you need 3 strands of each colour, you will have to wind off a separate ball to use and use the main ball from both ends.
If you plan on making the full set, it is easier to buy 3 balls of each to start with.

Equipment: 1.50mm hook for No.8, 2.50mm hook for No. 5, needle for sewing in ends, 2 rods for hanging.
