The Mini Moon Phase Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

Hey Everyone!

I am back and with a new free crochet wall hanging pattern! This pattern has been on the books for so long and I am so excited to finally have it out for everyone to enjoy.

I have been so inspired by the moon and anything astronomy lately that it is no surprise that this new wall hanging pattern is lunar themed. This wall hanging was actually inspired by a larger wall hanging that I published last year, The Autumn Moon Phase Wall Hanging.

It is a little on the larger side so I knew I wanted to be able to offer it in a smaller size (and for free on the blog). I am so obsessed with how this came out and I hope you love it as much as I do. I cant wait to see what color combinations you guys come up with!

Happy Crocheting!

*5.00 mm Crochet Hook

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

Dowel Rod or Tree Branch

*Yarn Needle


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, Caron One Pound and Loops & Threads Impeccable.

For this wall hanging I used the following yarn:

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Aran

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Soft Taupe

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Gold

Stitch Key (US Terms)

Ch = Chain

St/sts = Stitch(es)

Sc = Single Crochet

Color Abbreviations

ST = Soft Taupe

G = Gold

Special Notes

-The wall hanging is worked in rows.

-The wall hanging is worked from the bottom up.

-The 1st st of each row should be placed into the same stitch as the turning chain.

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

-The wall hanging is worked in single crochet.

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

Dimensions: 7 inches wide x 12 inches long (not including fringe)

Gauge: 15 sts x 18 rows = 4 inch square

  • Fasten off leaving at least a 2 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. Use a crochet hook to push through the far left foundation chain. Fold 3 strands in half and loop the middle of the strands onto the crochet hook and pull the loop of strands through the chain about 2 inches.

Fold the strands through the loop.

Tighten to create the fringe.

Repeat for every other foundation chain. Trim the fringe to your preferred length.

Hanging the Project

To attach the project to the 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 piece. Thread through both holes with cotton yarn and knot off both ends. Trim excess yarn. (feel free to use your preferred method of hanging the project)

    I love this pattern and I have started it but I’m struggling with the first few rows of color changes when it’s just a stitch or two. Like it doesn’t look right from the right side. Maybe I need to give it a few more rows to see it coming along?

    • Amanda

      I would definitely give it a few more rows and if it still looks funky you could always try another method of color changing. I have a few videos on my youtube channel if you need a reference.
