The Mini Moon Ridge Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

Hey Everyone!

So I think it is pretty apparent at this point as to how much I love anything lunar or astrological related, especially when it comes to my crochet patterns, lol. Literally every other pattern of mine is somewhat moon related and I literally can’t help myself.

I have been on a plant kick recently so all of my current patterns have something to do with plants. Except for this one. No matter how hard I try to move on to different design themes I always find my way back to the moon.

Let me introduce you to the original larger sized version that inspired this new mini wall hanging, The Moon Ridge Wall Hanging. I designed this wall hanging back in September 2020 and kept the idea of a mini swirling around in my head for a while.

I wanted to move on to different designs that challenged me a little bit more but the idea of doing a mini version of probably my favorite wall hanging never escaped me. Mostly because I have the original wall hanging hanging up in my house and I look at it everyday. lol

Now that I have made to the time to design a mini I decided to go more of an abstract route and added some negative space lines for depth and moved around the placement of the ridges a bit. I truly love how it came out and I hope you all love the pattern as much as I loved creating it.

Happy Crocheting!

Materials

*5.00 mm Crochet Hook

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

Dowel Rod or Tree Branch

*Yarn Needle

*Scissors

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, Loops & Threads Impeccable and We Crochet Brava Worsted.

For this wall hanging I used the following yarn:

Craftsmart Value (Michael’s) in Off White – approx. 150 yards

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Honey – approx. 180 yards

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Seraphim – approx. 50 yards

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Soft Taupe – approx. 50 yards

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Fig – approx. 100 yards

Stitch Key (US Terms)

Ch = Chain

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 (AR) means 8 sc in the color Aran.

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

-This wall hanging is worked up using the cut and tie color changing method.

  • Fasten off leaving a 3 foot tail.

Attaching the Fringe

  • To create the fringe, cut 12 inch pieces of yarn in Honey. You will need 3 strands 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 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 the 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 excess yarn. (feel free to use your preferred method of hanging the project)

Enjoy!
