How I made my Crochet wall Hanging

You will need:

  1. A crochet motif pattern. You could just whip up a good old granny, but for an interesting crochet wall hanging use one that fits together well or ‘tessellates’. I used Jane Crowfoots Mystical lanterns pattern.
  2. Some chunky scraps of wool.
  3. A 12mm crochet hook, or the correct size for the yarn you choose to use.
  4. Something to hang it from, I used a branch from the log pile, you could use bamboo stick or even a wire coat hanger?
  5. A large eyed tapestry needle
  6. Some cord for hanging.
  7. A pompom and or a tassel maker. You can make do without these and use the traditional circles 0f card, but I do find them handy to have around at all times. I use this tassel maker from clover also available from Etsy too. Or see my top tip below

 


 

Top tip!… you can easily make tassels by hand too.  I have a  step by step tutorial if you dont have a tassel maker yet? Its very easy take a look?

 


The Method:

  • When you have decided on your pattern motif. Decide how many you are going to use and in what colour. As usual keep it simple, perhaps just three colours? It might help to make a quick sketch too.

  • Next sew in all your ends and thread up the tapestry needle with your chosen thread. Then simply oversew to the branch/stick picking up the work as you go. Its wrapping with thread, dont worry about being neat it adds to the handmade charm?
