Spring is here and the colors are more vibrant than ever! This has to be my favorite part about spring. All of the beautiful flowers and trees starting to bloom and showing off all of their beautiful colors. This was a major source of inspiration when designing this wall hanging pattern because I wanted something super fun and colorful with fun texture mimicking the blooming of flowers. What better way to encompass that then pom poms!
Pom poms are so much fun to make and have become so much easier to make with the help of pom pom makers! If you love making pom poms then you’re in luck because there are 16 pom poms on this wall hanging but with a pom pom maker this will take you know time at all. Feel free to get super creative with the colors you choose for your pom poms. I think this would look super cute in pastels, just in time for Easter!

*Weight 4 Yarn in White, as well as 4 colors for your pom poms (or whichever color story you’d like to tell!)
A wooden branch or a wooden dowel rod (cut to fit 2 inches wider than the finished piece).
A drill for drilling holes to hang the piece (only if this is your preferred method of attaching string for hanging)
*A Steamer (optional to steam the piece before hanging and steaming the fringe)
For most of my wall hanging patterns I prefer to use a thicker and tighter spun worsted weight yarn. I feel like it gives a lot more definition to the piece and details tend to stand out more. I really don’t focus too much on the texture of the yarn because I steam every single one of my wall hangings, which softens the piece and makes it more flexible and flowy. This is especially helpful for tighter crocheters. The brands I tend to gravitate the most towards are Red Heart Super Saver and Loops & Threads Impeccable.

-The ch 1 in the beginning of each row does not count as the 1st st.
-The wall hanging is worked from the bottom up.
-The wall hanging is worked in rows.
-The last single crochet of each row will go into the turning chain from the previous row (this gives a clean edge to the project).
-The pom poms are attached after attaching the plain hanging to a dowel rod (tree branch).
Finished Dimensions: 11 inches wide x 11 inches tall (not including fringe)
Gauge: Not necessary for this pattern.
Row 1: sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, *ch 1, sk the next ch, sc in the next ch,* repeat until the end of the row. Ch 1, turn. (25 sc, 24 ch 1 sp)
Row 2: sc in the very first ch 1 sp, *ch 1, sk the next sc st, sc in the next ch 1 sp,* repeat across placing the last sc in the turning ch. Ch 1, turn. (25 sc, 24 ch 1 sp)
Row 3 – Row 44: Repeat Row 2
Row 45: place a sl st in the very first ch 1 sp and in every st and ch 1 sp in the row. Place the last sc in the turning ch.
- After completing Row 45, Fasten off and leave at least a 6 foot (2 yard) tail to attach to a branch or dowel. (Before attaching the piece to a branch, I highly suggest blocking the piece with a steamer).
To attach the piece, weave the tail around the front and under the dowel and through the first stitch from the last row of the piece.
Continue weaving until you reach the last stitch of the row. Knot off the tail and weave in your ends.
To hang the piece, drill two small holes through the dowel on either side of the piece. Thread through both holes with yarn and knot off both ends to keep the yarn from coming through the hole. Trim off the excess yarn. (feel free to use your preferred method of hanging the project)
Using a 1 3/8 inch pom pom maker and weight 4 yarn, make 16 pom poms in any color variation that you would like. I chose Pink, Orange, Yellow and Green
When the poms are completed place them where you would like them to be attached keeping them the same distance from each other. Mine are about an inch and a half from one another. Taking a picture is super helpful to remember where you want everything to go!
To attach the poms use a yarn needle to weave the ends of the poms through the piece to the back of the wall hanging. Tie a double knot with the 2 ends of the pom strings and weave in the ends into the back of the piece. Repeat for each of the pom poms. (Tip: Complete the top row of pom poms and use it as a guide for the rest.)
Attaching the Fringe
- To create the fringe, cut 12 inch pieces of yarn in your choice of color. You will need 3 strands of yarn to complete 1 fringe.
To attach the fringe, grab 3 strands of yarn. Use a larger crochet hook and push the hook through the far left foundation chain on the bottom of the piece. Fold the 3 strands in half and loop the middle of the strands onto the crochet hook and pull the loop of strands through the foundation chain about 2 inches.
Fold the end of the strands through the loop.
Tighten to create the fringe.
Repeat for every other foundation chain. I incorporated the colors I chose for the pom poms into the fringe by placing these colored strands underneath their respective colored pom poms.
To finishing everything off steam (optional) and trim the fringe and pick a perfect place on your wall to hang it!
