Quadrate Crochet Wall Hanging Free Pattern

Hi, I’m Tanya from The Cozy Knot! I initially had intentions for creating a rug pattern, but after this yarn arrived and I saw how stunning it was, there was absolutely no way I was going to be putting it on my floors and stepping all over it! It was just screaming to be turned into a wall hanging instead, so I modified my rug plans into a wall hanging plan, and what resulted was this really modern, but still quite cozy, decorative piece!

The inspiration for this piece actually came from my own living room. My living room has a lot of neutral colors and natural looking fibers along with pops of navy blues, terra cotta, and gold accents. I was interested in creating something modern, but not something so overly modern that it lost all of its warmth + coziness.

So, to warm this piece up, I kept the gold details to a minimum, added the plush loopy texture (which you just have the urge to touch!), and used natural twine to attach it to the wooden dowel.

SPECIAL STITCH

Extended Loop Stitch into the Front Loop Only (els-flo)

insert hook into the front loop only of the next st, yo and create 1-inch loop, pull up loops, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull through rem loops on hook

When complete, gently tug on loop to secure (making final loop length approximately 1 ½ inches long).

The extended loop stitch is just like the traditional loop stitch, except that you’re adding an extra “yo, pull through 2 loops” to extend the stitch higher before finishing. If you need an additional visual, you can find a short tutorial I did on Instagram here.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

• pattern is written in standard US crochet terms

• wall hanging is worked flat from the bottom up in rows, turning at the end of each

• pattern uses the Intarsia crochet technique

• ch 1 does NOT count as a st

• to change colors, on last st of current color, complete final “yo, pull through rem loops on hook” of the st with the new color for a seamless transition

• when changing colors, make sure the non-working yarn is always brought to the WS of your work.

FRINGE

Each fringe piece contains (2) 14-inch strands of yarn. You’ll need to cut 34 strands of Color A, 18 strands of Color B, and 8 strands of Color C. With RS facing up, we’ll be placing the fringe along the bottom Row 1 fhdc sts from right to left. Color B will go into sts 1-9. Color A will go into sts 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 19, 20, and sts 22-30. Color C will go into sts 12, 15, 18, and 21.

STEP 1 | Fold 2 strands in half.

STEP 2 | Insert hook into stitch from back to front.

STEP 3 | Grab both strands at the fold and pull through st from front to back.

STEP 4 | Pull ends of strands down through loop.

STEP 5 | Tighten to secure.

Repeat Steps 1-5 for each piece of fringe along the bottom of the wall hanging.

ASSEMBLY

You’ll now need the wooden dowel/branch, tapestry needle, and twine. Place the wooden dowel/branch centered at the top of your work. Working from right to left and using the tapestry needle and twine, sew twice through each stitch along the top of your work AND around the dowel/branch. When you reach the end of your work, leave a long tail for hanging your wall hanging. Attach to other side of dowel/branch to secure.

To finish, steam block your work to relax the fibers and stitches (if you used the metallic gold t-shirt yarn, be very cautious not to melt it), weave in any remaining loose ends, and trim any wild fringe pieces.

Your wall hanging is complete and ready for display!
