We are all a little weird, and life’s a little weird. And when when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it LOVE.

Dr. Seuss

#### Inspiration:

The inspiration for this wall hanging was my sisters recent wedding. I wish for everyone to be able to find that special soul that loves them truly. The one that never thinks you are “too much”. The one that loves your dance moves, your terrible jokes, your enthusiastic stories. Maybe you’ve already found them? Stitch this for the wonderful weirdo in your life!

#### The Yarn:

For this design (and most of my tapestry patterns) I’m using Loops & Threads Impeccable. I love to use an affordable, stiffer yarn for my wall hangings. We want the tapestry to hold its shape for months/years on the wall, so save that fancy, gorgeous draping yarn for a garment! I like to stitch mine in black and white to showcase the design but please feel free to use any creative color combinations you like! The Impeccable line has SO MANY beautiful colors to choose from. Comparable yarns for substitutions include:

- Red Heart Super Saver
- Big Twist Value
- Phentex Worsted
- Bernat Super Value

#### Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Tapestry crochet is done using the basic single crochet stitch, and a technique of holding 2 strands of yarn. The tutorial below will walk you through all the basics while you make a little tree sampler!

#### Materials:

- 490 yards, worsted weight ( 4 ) yarn. I used Loops and Threads Impeccable, (4.5 oz/127.5 gm, 285 yds/260 m), in colors: White (approx.150yds) & Black (approx. 340yds)
- US Size 7 Crochet Hook (4.5 mm)
- Scissors
- Darning needle
- Spray Bottle
- Pins
- Foam mat
- Stick / Dowel

#### Gauge:

15.5 stitches x 15.5 rows = 4″ square in SC. *Not super important for this project.*

#### Sizes:

18 x 24 inches (without fringe)

#### Abbreviations / Stitches Used (US Standard)

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

#### Changing Colors

#### Right Side (RS) / Wrong Side (WS)

When working RS, bring contrast color around to back to crochet over. When working WS, bring contrast colour up front of work to crochet over.

## TIP: The PDF comes with a chart to follow along with the written pattern.

# Pattern Instructions

**CH62 with MC (I suggest going up .5mm hook size just for the chain)**

***Start working over your contrast color from the first row to the last row. This will ensure an even look throughout the project.***

**← Row 73 [RS]: **[MC] 61.** **Cut contrast yarn. Move on to border.

## 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 stick / dowel

With RS facing, join two stands of yarn at top right corner. Pull up a big loop and insert your stick. Insert hook into next stitch, yarn over. Pull through stitch. Pull the loops up taller than the stick. Remove your hook. Slide loops over stick, then pull snug but not too tight. Repeat for each stitch, sliding stick along as you go.

## Add Fringe (Optional)

With WS facing, insert hook from back to front. With fringe folded in half, pull up a loop. Remove hook, grab yarn with your fingers and pull through. Pull snug. Alternate using one, then two pieces of fringe to keep it from getting crowded/looking to sparse. If you want to shape the fringe, I recommend using masking tape to help hold your yarn as you cut. I chose a triangle shape but this is a great chance to get creative!

## Add a Hanger

**RS**– Cut 4 pieces of yarn to approx. 24 inches or your desired length. Make a slip knot over one end and pull snug, tie a knot. Repeat with second side.You could put a dab of hot glue or cut/file a notch behind where your hanger string sits, so it doesn’t squeeze your work in from the sides.**WS**–
