I’m in this weird phase of designing where all I can think about is shapes, lol. So it should come as no surprise if you see a bunch of geometrically themed patterns from me lately. First up is “The Celestial Wall Hanging.” Celestial because it reminds me of the moon and geometric because it’s a circle (insert facepalm emoji here, lol).
If you haven’t noticed I have this incessant need to constantly explain myself. I am working on it but I thought it would be comical for you guys to see my thought process when naming this new design. If I had to choose between designing 10 patterns or naming just one, I would absolutely choose designing 10 different patterns because I have the hardest time naming them.
Okay, now that I have my blubberish chatter out of the way lets get on with the pattern. I hope you love it as much as I had trouble naming it.

Weight 4 Worsted Weight Yarn (yarn I used is listed below)
Wooden Branch or *Dowel Rod
*Hand Steamer (optional)
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, Loops & Threads Impeccable and We Crochet Brava Worsted.
For this wall hanging I used the following yarn:
We Crochet Brava Worsted in Persimmon – approx. 65 yards
We Crochet Brava Worsted in White – approx. 140 yards
We Crochet Brava Worsted in Solstice Heather – approx. 10 yards
We Crochet Brava Worsted in Seashell – approx. 65 yards

- Fasten off after Row 65 leaving a 3 foot tail.
Attaching the Fringe
- To create the fringe cut 12 inch pieces of yarn in Solstice Heather. You will need 3 strands of yarn to complete 1 fringe.
To attach the fringe, grab 3 strands of yarn in Solstice Heather. With a crochet hook, push the hook through the far left foundation chain. Fold the 3 strands of yarn in half, looping the middle of the strands onto the crochet hook.
Fold the strands through the loop.
Tighten to create the fringe.
Repeat for every other foundation chain.
Hanging the Project
To attach the project to a dowel rod or tree branch; using a yarn needle, weave the tail over the dowel/branch and back under into the 1st stitch on the top of the wall hanging.
Repeat for each stitch on top of the wall hanging.
Knot off and weave in your ends.
To hang the project, drill 2 small holes on either side of the branch/dowel. Thread through both holes with cotton yarn and knot off both ends. Trim the excess yarn. (Feel free to use your preferred method of hanging the project)
