I have been seeing quite a few crochet wall hangings online lately so I decided to test my skills out and make one of my own. I think the great thing about wall hangings is the imperfections or the slightly inconsistent piece of yarn that kind of just makes its place known when you look at it. There are so many different ways you can make wall hangings with crochet so I am sure I will be doing some more patterns in the future for them. So let’s get started with the free crochet & weave pattern!
Hook size 10mm
Yarn-worsted weight 4 for the tassels and a portion of the decorative addition to the piece. Weight 6 yarn for the crocheted portion(I used Lion Brand thick and quick yarn). Additional material for the pattern-Chunky Luxe Yarn sold by Michaels stores
Wooden stick or anything you would want to use to hang it up with
The chain(s) at the beginning of each row DO NOT count as a stitch.
For color changes, I have noted at the end of the row which color to change too. The easiest way to change colors is to complete every step except the last step of the stitch you are doing, before completing it add new color and pull through to complete the stitch.
This is a beginner/intermediate pattern, however, I did include the link for the video to help with the crochet single loop stitch.
Bobble Stitch-Yarn over, insert hook into designated stitch, draw loop through, yarn over, draw through the first 2 loops on the hook, [yarn over, insert hook into the same stitch, draw loop back through, yarn over, draw through first 2 loops on the hook], repeat  one more time. You will end up with 4 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops to complete the bobble stitch.
Herringbone HDC Stitch-Yarn over, insert hook into designated stitch, yarn over and draw through the stitch and first loop on the hook, yarn over and draw through the remaining 2 loops on the hook to complete the stitch.

Row 25-Chain 1, turn. SC in the back loop only. (27 BLO)
Continue single crocheting with same yarn around the entire piece. Make sure to place 3 SC in each corner, this helps it too lay flat when hanging. Slip stitch into your first SC when you get back around. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
I then chose to cut a row of my crochet single loop stitch. You can keep both rows loops or cut one or both. If you do it creates mini tassels like the picture posted below.
After I was done with my crochet & weave pattern I chose to block it. This helps it to stretch out and become even around the entire hanging. To do this I just purchased some $5 foam squares I found at Wal-Mart in the toy section (they were clearance). I laid my piece out on top of the squares and stretched it out how I wanted it to be and pinned it onto the foam square. I then sprayed it with some water and let it sit for a day and a half or so. After that, it should be good to go to complete the weaving part of it.
Now onto the weaving part of the pattern.
For the roving portion use the big open slots in the middle of the crocheted piece.
Pull your roving through into the second space from the under-side leaving about a 5-6 inch tail to be woven into the back. I have detailed pictures below to show the process.
Then using your long side of the roving- go over the outside of the crocheted piece and back under. Then pull the roving up through the first space.
Next, you’ll skip a space put your roving into it, then pull through the skipped space.
Pull it through all the way. Try not to pull too tightly. Repeat across until you are out of open spaces.
I also wove into plain dc rows with my worsted weight yarn. And as shown below I did a row of x’s.
Prepare whatever color you desire, double the length of how long you want the tassels to be and fold them in half. I have included the link to my previous post with how to attach the yarn to make tassels.
I added them all along the bottom also but the sky is the limit with where you want to add them!
And you can try adding different weaving techniques as well. Go online and type weaving techniques and it will bring up a TON of different ones that you could add to it to make it your own!
When you’re done, weave in all the ends onto the back side.
To connect the piece onto your rod or stick, grab a long piece of yarn or string and your yarn needle. You’ll insert the needle and yarn into the top of your weaving, and up over the rod and through the back side of the weaving. I went every other stitch. Make sure you make the passes even so the weaving will hang straight. It is up too you on how loose or tight you want it to hang from the rod or stick.
And there you have it, your own crochet & weave pattern a beautiful masterpiece that you can enjoy for years to come! Feel free to change it up by adding different weaving techniques and or colors. Hope you enjoy!
