Rock Me Wall Hanging – Free Tapestry Crochet Pattern

How many times have you listened to a song and you’ve been taken back to a moment? How many times has it brought back a memory you might have otherwise forgotten? Few things have the ability to anchor you to a moment the way music does. For me, this is where the inspiration for this pattern comes from. 

It comes from the carefree summer days spent cruising through the mountains with my best friend. We would drive through the sunshine, singing at the top of our lungs, nothing existing outside of that moment. These lyrics, while untraditional in the ways of nursery rhymes, have always been a favorite to sing to my daughter. I hope that one day she hears this song and that she is brought back. Back to the sunbeams, back to the story in our laps; back to me rocking her. I hope she remembers the safety of my arms and the simplicity of this moment. How beautiful happy is. 

If this song isn’t one of your favorites, that’s alright. The words are a gentle reminder that our babies are only little for a short while. Read them one more story. Rock them a little while longer. Sing them one more song. Time travel exists, every moment has a soundtrack of its own. Don’t skip yours, let it play. 

I’m so excited – On February 25, 2021, you can download this pattern as a free PDF on Ravelry through the Mums Gifts Blog Hop hosted by my friend Bernadine! First, head to Me ‘n’ My Hook’s Blog to get the coupon code by clicking the link below. Then, come back to here to get the link to the pattern. The free PDF will only be available for 24 hours starting at midnight GMT on the 25th.

The Yarn:

When making a wall hanging, I like to use a cheap, stiff yarn. I find it really helps the project hold its shape. For this pattern, I used less than one skein each (285y/260m) of Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn in colors: White & Black. The Impeccable line has SO MANY great color options, the combinations are endless! Other comparable yarns to use would be, Red Heart Super Saver, Bernat Super Value, or Big Twist Value. Of course, you can always substitute any worsted weight (4) yarn of your choice, it may just have a different drape when completed.

Materials:

  • > 570 yards, worsted weight ( 4 ) yarn. I used 2 skeins, Loops and Threads Impeccable, 4.5 oz/127.5 gm, 285 yds/260 m, in colors:
    • 1 White [MC] & 1 Black [CC] (or your preferred color choices.)
  • US Size 7 Crochet Hook (4.5 mm)
  • Scissors
  • Darning Needle
  • Dowel / Stick
  • Measuring Tape
  • Spray Bottle
  • Pins
  • Foam Mat

Skill Level:

Advance Beginner / Intermediate

Size:

16 x 20 inches (without fringe)

Gauge:

15.5 stitches x 15.5 rows = 4″ square in SC

*Not super important for this project.*

Stitches / Abbreviations Used:

  • CH – Chain
  • SC – Single Crochet
  • SLST – Sip Stitch
  • ST(S) – Stitch(es)
  • RS – Right Side
  • WS – Wrong Side
  • MC – Main Color
  • CC – Contrast Color
  • Approx – Approximately

Notes:

  • All stitches are done in SC using the tapestry crochet technique of carrying two strands of yarn.
  • Turn your work at the end of each row.
  • CH1 at the beginning of each row. (Does not count as a ST)

TIP: The PDF comes with a chart to follow along!

Changing Colors:

RS & WS

Border

(MC): CH1, 1/4 turn so that you are working down the left side – *1SC in each row, (SC, CH1, SC) in corner, 1SC in each ST*. Repeat until you’ve reached starting point. 1SC in CH1 space, SLST to next ST. Tie off. Weave ends.

Blocking

Wet block work by misting with water on both sides until damp, then pin in place according to finished measurements. Leave in place until dry. You can speed up the process if you have a fan to run beside it.

Attaching a stick / dowel

Add Fringe (Optional)

Add a hanger
