I’m back again with an eye-mazing pattern and this time we’ll be making a crochet evil eye wall art piece. As I mentioned in previous posts, the crochet eye applique is one of my most popular patterns. Over the years, I’ve gotten requests to design more eye-themed patterns.
Last month, we explored the wonders of the crochet eye granny squares. This month we’ll be taking that pattern, spicing it up and making our very own evil eye wall hanging. Let’s get to it!

About the Evil Eye
The evil eye is mentioned a couple of times across the Bible and is connected to materialism, envy and an obsession with wealth, to the point of competing so you can equal or outdo others. This wall art is a reminder to not envy others and their possessions because God will generously provide all we need.
Reference :Mark 7:1-23 (emphasis on v. 20-23), Proverbs 28:22, Proverbs 23:1-8 (emphasis on v. 6) and 2 Corinthians 9:8-10.
