Exclusive Pattern: Traditional crewel colors shine in this table topper.
Arundel Crewel, 15" round, #3- and #4-cut wool. Designed by Joan Moshimer and hooked by Lisanne Miller, Wells, Maine, 2016.
Arundel Crewel, designed by Joan Moshimer, is a classic pattern that, when hooked as shown, is a traditional crewel color plan.
At 15" round, Arundel Crewel is a pattern that allows you to “taste” or “test” a new color palette, try new techniques, and even explore new binding options. Small projects like this are good for creative explorations. I found this pattern was the perfect “travel” pattern for my long trips last fall.
Arundel Crewel lends itself to being hooked in tones and values of one color: bright or muted, or any color play you choose. For this version of Arundel Crewel, I chose traditional crewel colors. The soft and light background has a bit of variation; it is a spot dye called Mother of Pearl. Once I chose this light background, it was easy to settle on the wonderful shades of violet, turquoise, and rich greens for the motifs in the design.
