Day of the Dead Banner Crochet Pattern - Four Papel Picado Patterns - Dia de los Muertos - Mexican Home Decor
Digital file type(s): 1 PDF
Celebrate Day of the Dead with the bright colors and passion of Mexico in a banner that will last. I designed four fun patterns in for this medium-level project with simple stitches. This pattern includes all four designs--what a deal!
There are no charts, just simple repeated motifs--clearly explained. If you like charts, you’re bound to quickly get the hang of the motifs and can use the high-quality images as a chart. I recommend using cotton crochet thread, but the designs come out great even with sport or DK weight yarn. Each flag takes 3-4 hours to make.
Day of the Dead is a colorful holiday in Mexico on the day after Halloween. Families celebrate the dead with bright yellow marigolds, wildly ornamented sugar skulls, and banners of finely perforated paper (papel picado). In the spirit of “death is the thing we all have in common,” jaunty skeletons in sombreros, traditional dresses, and pedaling away on bicycles fill every corner of these decorations.

Love the patterns, the only issue is that a couple of them have some mistakes in them and if you're not experienced at crochet this may cause a problem. Of course I didn't mark where the mistakes are to pass it along, sorry! Otherwise, really happy with the product.
Love it! Easy download! Can't wait to create from this beautiful written pattern!!!
Super easy! Cant wait to finish all 4.
It has some flaws in the instructions but with the image I was able to follow the pattern and weave it.
