I am back with a new crochet wall hanging pattern and this one is a little on the funky side. The Lorelei Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern has such a fun and modern design with a pretty unique construction.
Most crochet wall hangings are constructed of 1 single continuous panel. The Lorelei Wall Hanging is constructed of 4 separate panels and then stitched together to create a modern and almost geometric design.
The construction of this wall hanging has to be the most fun part of the project. It is always so satisfying to see a project take shape and come to life. With crochet there is almost this instant gratification because you can get a pretty clear picture of how a project will look like after completing just a few rows.
With the Lorelei Wall Hanging the fulfillment comes from being able to essentially build the wall hanging and put the pieces together like a puzzle to create this beautiful piece of wall art. I currently have mine hanging up in my bedroom where I get to wake up and see it everyday and remind myself why I love pattern designing so much (super cheesy, I know).
I truly hope everyone loves this pattern as much as I do. Happy Crocheting 🙂

2 Wooden Dowels
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.

Stitch Key (US Terms)
Ch = Chain
St/sts = Stitch(es)
Sc = Single Crochet
Sc2tog = Single Crochet 2 Together
Sk = Skip
** = Repeat
Sc2tog: Insert hook into stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into next st, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through all 3 loops on your hook.
-The wall hanging is worked in 4 separate pieces and later seamed together and connected to dowels.
-Each piece of the wall hanging is worked in rows.
-The 1st st of each row should be placed into the same stitch as the turning chain (unless specified otherwise).
-The turning chain does not count as the 1st stitch of the row.
-To adjust the size of the wall hanging change your hook size to establish your preferred gauge
Finished Dimensions: 16.5 inches Wide x 13 inches tall (including dowels, not including fringe)
Gauge: Not necessary for this pattern.
Row 1: sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc in the next 7 chs, 3 sc in the next ch, sc in the next 9 chs, *sk the next 2 chs, sc in the next 9 chs, 3 sc in the next ch, sc in the next 9 chs* repeat until the end of the row. Ch 1, turn. (62) Work in the back hump of the ch for a cleaner edge.
- You will be working in the back loops only for the rest of the pattern.
Row 2: sk the 1st st, sc2tog, sc in the next 7 sts, 3 sc in the next st, *sc in the next 9 sts, sk the next 2 sts, sc in the next 9 sts, 3 sc in the next st* repeat until you reach the last 9 sts. Sc in the next 7 sts, sc2tog in the last 2 sts. Ch 1, turn. (61)
Row 3: sc2tog, sc in the next 7 sts, 3 sc in the next st, *sc in the next 9 sts, sk the next 2 sts, sc in the next 9 sts, 3sc in the next st* repeat until you reach the last 9 sts. Sc in the next 7 sts, sc2tog in the last 2sts. Ch 1, turn. (61)
Row 4 – Row 6: Repeat Row 3. Fasten off after Row 6.
Repeat the pattern 3 more times to create the 4 zig zag panels.
Line the panels up front to back to recreate the design pictured below.
For every point of connection on each one of the panels tie on the same color yarn you used for the panels. With a yarn needle, weave in and out through at least 2 stitches. Knot off and weave in your ends.
After connecting all 4 panels, line the panels up with the 2 dowel rods to establish where you will connect the panels to the dowels. (Each dowel should measure 16.5 inches, or should measure at least 2 inches from the end panels)
Begin by connecting the top half of the panels to the dowel. (there is no right top or bottom side)
To attach the panel to the top dowel begin by tying on the same color yarn to the right of the panel your working on. Using your yarn needle, weave the yarn over the dowel and under into the first row of the panel. Repeat for each of the 6 rows.
When you reach the end fasten off and weave in your ends. Repeat for each of the top of the panels.
To attach the bottom half of the panels to the bottom dowel rod, tie on the same color yarn to the right of the panel your working on and chain 1 loosely.
Begin by placing a sc in each row of the panel around the dowel, making sure to end with an odd number of stitches (place 1 more sc after the 6th row). The odd number of stitches will allow the fringe to be placed in every other stitch. Repeat for each of the panels.
This is what you should have after attaching both the top half and bottom half of the panels to the dowel rods.
To finish off the wall hanging, attach the fringe to every other sc stitch on the bottom dowel.
To create the fringe, cut 12 inch pieces of yarn in the same color as the panels. 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 sc on the bottom dowel. 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 stitch about 2 inches. Fold the end of the strands through the loop and tighten to create the fringe. Repeat for each sc stitch on the bottom dowel rod. Trim the fringe to your desired length.
To hang the piece, drill two small holes through the top 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.
