I seem to be very fond of circles lately, and today’s crochet light up mat or wall hanging is no exception.
Basically what you are doing is crocheting a spiral around an LED rope light, to create a crochet work of art that can be used in whatever ways you would like, and that your imagination takes you.|For instructions on how to crochet a basic spiral stitch, you can find numerous tutorials online.

You can make it in more than one color, which looks really nice in a spiral, your could use colored rope lights, and this lit circle would look amazing on a nursery wall too, done in the same colors as the baby’s room! A nice soft, gentle light for baby as they drift off to dreamland!
You could also use up some of your stash by making this a multicolored spiral, and they would also make phenomenal gifts – or even holiday gifts (ie: Christmas)! They are such a novelty I can practically guarantee that your friend, family member will not have seen them before, but will love them like crazy!
Special thanks to Johanna Hyrkäs , the original creator, and Carmen Jorissen at CraftyQueens.nl blog for sharing this pattern and their tips and insights with us!
As a note of caution, please please please ensure that you are only using LED lights, because they do not warm up, and conventional holiday lighting could potentially become a fire hazard once covered with yarn, and I do not want that to happen to anyone – and especially not our friends on this blog!
If you make one, please send in pics of it, so that we can all admire your handiwork! I can’t wait to see them!
Be Well Friends!
