Self Love Club – FREE Tapestry Crochet Wall Hanging

It might be hard to love yourself sometimes, but it is much harder to not love yourself. You have to choose yourself, my beautiful friend. You have to love who you are and stop putting yourself down because you have entire galaxies inside of you. You have ideas and experiences and dreams that no one else has. And you have to love all of you. Your feet, your thighs, your stomach, your heart and your soul - because it is all you. You have to become someone you love because whether or not you like it, you are stuck with you until the very end. So start treating yourself with kindness. Start taking care of yourself emotionally and physically. Start loving yourself compassionately. Start loving yourself entirely.
 
                                                                                        - Walk the Earth.

The Yarn

Like many of my wall hangings, I used Loops and Threads Impeccable in colours Black [MC] & White [CC]. It’s a great affordable acrylic yarn, with many colour options that’s available at my local Michael’s. Any worsted Category 4 yarn that is stiff is perfect for wall hangings as it can hold its shape on the wall. Choose two bold contrasting colours that speak to your space and brand and give this project a go.

The pattern includes written instructions, photos, a video tutorial and a colorwork chart.

Skill Level – Advanced Beginner / Intermediate

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! If this is your first time trying tapestry crochet, I highly recommend making the tree sampler first. This will give you some practice with holding both strands of yarn and getting your tension right before starting a large project.

Materials:

  • 225 yards, worsted weight ( 4 ) yarn. I used Loops and Threads Impeccable in colors:
    • 150 yds White [MC] & 75 yds Black [CC]
  • 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.*

Finished Size – 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

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.
  • CH 1 at the beginning of each row.
  • CH 1 does not count as a ST.

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.

Attach to Stick / Dowel

Add Fringe – Optional

Add a Hanger
