The Easter Egg Hunt Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

Hey Everyone!

Is is just me or is this year flying by? I cant believe it is already the end of march, which means it’s officially spring season. Besides the overwhelming nose blowing because of allergies, it is also almost egg hunting time! Which brings me to introduce the newest free pattern to the blog, “The Easter Egg Hunt” Wall Hanging!

Gosh, my family used to have the most insane Easter egg hunts when I was a kid. All the cousins would come together with all of our baskets before we’d take off to grab as many eggs as we could, hoping to score the egg with $100 that my grandma hid.

That excitement and nostalgia was the inspiration behind the design of this wall hanging. It was also the inspiration behind another Easter wall hanging, “The Oh So Easter” Wall Hanging crochet pattern.

Some of my fondest memories from my childhood are from the springtime, where it would just become warm enough for all the neighborhood kids to be able to play outside again. It was such a joy to relive those memories while designing these patterns and I hope it brings you just as much joy as it has brought me.

Happy Crocheting!

Materials

*5.00 mm Crochet Hook

Weight 4 Worsted Weight Yarn (yarn I used listed below)

Dowel Rod or Tree Branch

*Yarn Needle

*Scissors

*Hand Steamer (optional)

Yarn Choice

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:

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Aran-approx. 150 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Teal-approx. 5 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Citron-approx. 15 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Aqua-approx. 5 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Blue Haze-approx. 25 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Sea Green-approx. 5 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Skylight-approx. 10 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Classic Gray-approx. 5 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in White-approx. 10 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Butterscotch-approx. 10 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Coral-approx. 10 yards

-The turning chain does not count as the 1st stitch of the row.

-The pattern is written as: # of single crochet stitches (color abbreviation), example: 8 (AR)
means 8 sc in Aran.

-The odd rows are the right side rows. Even rows will be the wrong side.

  • Faster After Row 61 leaving a 4 foot tail.

Attaching the Fringe

  • To create the fringe, cut 12 inch pieces of yarn in Aran. You will need 3 strands to complete 1 fringe.

To attach the fringe, grab 3 strands of yarn in White. 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 in 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 the top of the wall hanging. Knot off 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)

Enjoy!
