Crochet Palm Tree in a Frame for Wall Decor
First published in Simply Crochet Issue 84 and especially designed for this magazine. Every single detail is explained. You'll find instructions on how to create the palm tree, its branches, bananas, flowers, lianas, grass. The tree branches and the grass are crocheted on wire, so they keep their shape perfectly and can be used separately (they don't need to be fixed on a frame but you'll need to use thicker wire and insert wire into the trunk too). I used King Cole Pricewise Double Knitting yarn but different yarns and threads can be used. Original tropics and jungle themed exotic design, perfect for wall decor.
The idea of « Nature aux fils » came from a distant childhood memory of a 3D flower knitted, I think, on a skirt's strap by my talented grandma for me. Inspired by nature, I want my crochet flowers and other creations as realistic as possible but I don't want to copy nature and reproduce the whole flowers because I know that I'll never do better, so I introduce them into my pieces of jewellery.
The patterns that I publish here are unique and were designed by me with great care and passion. Today I want to share my secrets with you. My technique is simple but new and original, it permits you to obtain a needed shape rather easily. I also use some unusual materials that everyone can have at home but doesn't think to use.
Welcome to my universe!
