With these tricks up your sleeve, your wall art will turn out beautifully every time.
Maintain even tension throughout your project.
First up – keep an eye on your tension! If you notice that some portions of your project are looking tighter or looser than others, it’s most likely a tension issue.
You may notice your stitches getting tighter if you’re feeling stressed, or looser because you’re becoming more relaxed as you crochet. Or it may be as simple as your hands are getting tired! Keep an eye on this, and take breaks as needed.
Another tension trick is to try pulling yarn out from the center of the skein. This allows it to pull more evenly than it does if you pull from the outside, which in turn helps keep your tension more consistent, too.
Get comfortable with color changes.
Next, don’t fear color changes! They may seem intimidating at first, but switching colors is easy once you get the motions down. Check out this step-by-step guide for changing colors in crochet whether you’re working in rows or rounds. And remember, leave a long enough tail to weave in your ends for a seamless-looking color change.
If you’re a beginner to crochet color changes, try it out on a practice swatch before starting on your wall hanging.
Or, if you want super simple color changes, try an ombre or self-striping yarn! This way, you can get the visual effect of multiple colors without any extra work.
Keep your project edges straight.
Finally, keep your edges straight and true. This gives a polished look to your piece. The most important thing to remember when aiming for straight edges is to count your stitches. Even if you don’t count every row, count every once in a while to make sure you’re still on track!
And don’t forget – you can also block your project to help straighten it out and achieve a more professional finish.
