Designer Becky Skuse says: “Give yourself the chance to practice making extended and half stitches, and create this colourful wall hanging in the process. We chose colours to represent a sunset over the ocean, but you can use any colours you like to harmonise with your space and mood. Once you get stuck in, you’ll want to create a wavy wall hanging for every room in your home!”
