Directly from Anne Weil, the Author and Pattern Designer behind Knitting Without Needles: "Make your space your own with a striking wall hanging. [Use] a variegated fiber adds extra interest and depth, while the modern font keeps it fresh. Using old cardboard and piles of finger knitting opens up all sorts of possibilities--imagine a fuzzy bunny in the nursery, a neon peace sign in your tween's room, or a frame around your son's favorite painting...wrap a styrofoam wreath, egg, or cone for dazzling holiday decor." And the best part is that you won't need to buy any needles!
Anne Weil includes wonderful photo tutorials and written instructions with her patterns so that even the novice can make all of her patterns. Please visit her site at Flax & Twine to see video tutorials and more lovely patterns!

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Tosh Vintage by Madelinetosh (100% Merino Wool; 200yds): 5 Skeins.
ALTERNATE YARN: Rios by Malabrigo (100% Merino Wool; 100g/220yds): 5 Skeins. While it may seem counter intuitive to use Rios, the spectacular variegation creates a stunning piece for your wall. Please use care when dusting so that you do not pull the fibers loose.
ALTERNATE YARN: Cotton Fleece by Brown Sheep Co. (80% Cotton / 20% Resilient USA Wool; 100g/215 yds): 5 Skeins. Cotton Fleece will not show all of the variegated colors that Rios has, but it does provide great opportunity for solid colored stripes on your piece. This is an easy care yarn, so it should withstand vigorous dusting over time. Please note that cotton will fade over time if left in sunlight.
ALTERNATE YARN: Handknit Cotton by Rowan (100% Cotton; 50g/93 yds): 11 skeins. This high twist cotton yarn has a beautiful sheen and will withstand years of abuse with lovely color. This solid colored yarn is great for stripes, too. Please note that cotton will fade over time if left in sunlight.
