Free Crochet Pattern - Wall Hanging

{15.06.18}

I’ve been so taken with all the beautiful Wall Hangings I’ve seen online recently. I made a crochet sampler wall hanging a few years ago and it gave me such joy I decided to try another one...

Anyway, I seem to have acquired a small amount of enamel pins recently so I thought a wall hanging would be a fabulous way to display them in my office.

I experimented with some new Katia yarns (Malibu and Louisiana) I found in my local yarn shop and I really enjoyed using them in the border and for the fringe of the wall hanging. If you’d like to see more of the finished wall hanging and the yarns I used I am talking about it in episode 15 of my YouTube podcast that you can view here.

I have written the pattern up below and added some step by step photos if you’d like to have a go. It’s a very simple pattern so perfect for beginners and a brilliant project for using up leftover yarn.

Edging:

{If you are using two different yarns for your edge, as I have, you will need to go down a yarn size or two, otherwise your work will plucker…for example I have worked my edge in the Katia Malibu and a black 4 ply cotton}

Joining yarn to edge of row 50 work 1dc for every row along edge of wall hanging. Work 2dc in corners and 3dc in point. (See photo)

Block if needed, you can also use a light spray of starch if you’d like to stiffen the wall hanging

Tassels: 

For the tassels cut 4 lengths of yarn approx. 35cm in length for each dc along the bottom of the wall hanging.

Join by folding yarn strands in half, inserting hook into stitch and pulling a loop through, pull remaining strands through loop and pull tightly. (See photos) Continue for each st along bottom edge of wall hanging.

Finishing:

Thread a wooden dowel or twig from the garden (approx. 1 inch wider than hanging) in and out of the treble stitches at the top of the hanging – starting from behind the first treble.

Decorate wall hanging with surface crochet or simple embroidery stitches if you’d like.
