There’s something about lanterns that make them the perfect accessory to your house and foremost, your garden! They add coziness, warmth and creativity They just give the finishing touch.
At first I wanted to design one with lots of different stitches and colours. But then I saw this stitch pattern with all the little windows and I realized it had endless colour possibilities. You could vary the colours of the longer stitches and leave the shorter stitches in one colour, or the other way around or all mixed up!
The long stitches reminded me of the long and slender branches of the willow, hence the name!
