For this pattern, you can use any weight yarn you’d like. I used Knitpicks Wool of the Andes which is a worsted weight yarn and my wall hanging turned out to be 10 inches wide by 12 inches long. Again, you can choose any sized yarn you prefer, just know that your finished wall hanging will be a different size than mine!
For a worsted weight wall hanging, use a 5.0mm crochet hook. For any other sized yarn, just use the suggested crochet hook size listed on the label!
Some other good (and affordable) yarn options for this project would be:
Dishie Yarn from Knit Picks (I love a good cotton yarn for texture and structure!
Rewind Yarn from WeCrochet/ Lionbrand (another good cotton blend option)
Paintbox Simply Cotton from Love Crafts (they have an AMAZING color selection. They have 60 shades to choose from! imagine the rainbow of options! 😉 ) This yarn comes in both a DK and a Worsted option and in acrylic options for chunky, bulky, and super bulky yarn as well. All with the choice of 60 colorways and its $3 regular price!
Feel free to comment any other yarns you think would work well and I’ll edit the post to link them up for you!
- CH: Chain
- SC: Single Crochet
- Sl St: Slip Stitch
- DNC: Do not chain
- SK1ST: Skip one stitch
- F/O: Finish off (Slip stitch and weave in ends)
- This pattern is written in US terms
- This pattern is worked from the top to the bottom, following the chart.
- Yarn choices:
- You will need seven different colors of yarn for this project; one main color and 6 accent colors for the stripes.
- You can choose any weight of yarn for this project. I used worsted weight and ended up with a product that was 10 inches by 12 inches. You can use any size yarn you want! Just make sure to adjust your hook size to the yarn size you choose.
- This pattern follows a chart (included on page three). Each square on the chart represents one single crochet stitch. The white squares outside of the main grey shape do not represent stitches.
To begin, chain 39 in your main color.
Single crochet into the second chain from your hook and across.
You have just crocheted the first row of the chart below. Continue the chart and seamlessly change colors when the chart changes. Crochet the chart until Row 29.
To Begin Decreasing:
Row 30: Turn, Do not chain, skip one stitch, single crochet into the next stitch and across until there are two stitches left. Skip one stitch, single crochet into the last stitch.
Row 31: Turn, DNC, SK1ST, SC into the next stitch and across until there are two stitches left. SK1ST, SC into the last stitch.
Row 32- 39: Repeat Row 31
Row 40: Repeat Row 31, when you come to the last stitch in the row, SL ST instead of single crocheting. Then, single crochet up the side, across the top and down the other side of the wall hanging. Then, SL ST and F/O in the first stitch of Row 40. This gives your piece a finished look.
Now, hang your wall hanging up!! You can easily tack it to the wall or attach it to a stick or a piece of driftwood for extra flare!
