01 May Happy Home Wall Hanging Free Crochet Pattern
Scroll down for Happy Home Wall Hanging free crochet pattern.
The Happy Home Wall Hanging was inspired by the recent current events and having to be home for an extended period of time. I realized that my home is my sanctuary, and it truly is my happy place! I am an extrovert, but I also love to be home. I believe that creating a space in which you can relax, make memories, and enjoy with your friends and family is the key to happiness and a happy home.

Add new piece of CC
ch 1, sc evenly around entire work, putting 3 sc sts in each of the four corners. Sl st to join and sl st in the next st for a seamless border. Cut yarn and weave in all ends.
Wrap CC yarn around a 12” wide piece of cardboard or thin book, and cut on one side to create 24” long strands of fringe. Sample used 26 pieces of fringe, 2 pieces per fringe set.
Step 1: Fold 2 pieces of fringe in half
Step 2: Insert large crochet hook into bottom corner stitch on border
Step 3: Pull loop through stitch
Step 4: Pull ends of fringe through loop
Repeat steps 1-4 in every other stitch across bottom border
Take your 24” dowel or stick and place it at the top of your work. Attach a new piece of CC yarn to the top right side of your sc border, and sc 1 in each st and around your dowel/stick to secure them together. Cut yarn leaving a 24” tail.
Take the other end of your 24” tail and secure it back to the right side of your work, creating a long loop to hang your piece. You can adjust the length of this depending on how low you want it to hang on the wall. When this is complete, gently steam block entire piece, including fringe to relax the fibers. Then trim all pieces of fringe for a perfectly straight edge. Weave in all ends
