The Plaid Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

Hey Everyone!

I’m back and with a new wall hanging pattern, except this time is Christmas themed! I was determined to design at least one holiday themed pattern this year and thankfully I was able to pull this one together. I can’t believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away and I haven’t started making any of my gifts yet!

While designing this wall hanging I knew I wanted to do something around a plaid design because who doesn’t love plaid…….am I right?! The original design was supposed to be a snowflake, but after days of trial and error (and maybe a few tears) I decided to leave it on the cutting room floor and try something else.

My first design idea was initially a Christmas Tree, but I was afraid the design would be too simple and not that exciting. Boy was I wrong! I am actually totally obsessed with how this came out and I’m kind of disappointed I didn’t go with the tree idea the first time around.

Anyways….I hope you all love this pattern as much as I do and you all have a safe and wonderful holidays:)

Happy Crocheting!

Materials

*5.00 mm Crochet Hook

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

Dowel Rod or Tree Branch (cut to size)

*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 and Loops & Threads Impeccable.

For this wall hanging I used the following yarn:

Loops & Impeccable in Burgundy

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Red Heart

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Black

Red Heart Super Saver in Aran Fleck

Stitch Key (US Terms)

Ch = Chain

St/sts = Stitch(es)

Sc = Single Crochet

** = Repeat

Color Abbreviations

B = Burgundy

R = Red Hot

BL = Black

A = Aran Fleck

Special Notes

-The wall hanging is worked in rows.

-The wall hanging is worked from the bottom up.

-The 1st stitch 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(B) means 8 sc in the color burgundy.

Dimensions: 13 inches wide x 14 inches long (not including fringe)

Gauge: Not necessary for this pattern.

Fasten off leaving at least a 3 foot tail.

Attaching the Fringe

  • To create the fringe, cut 12 inch pieces of yarn in Claret. You will need 3 strands of yarn 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 or tree branch; using a yarn needle, weave the tail over the dowel/branch and back under into the 1st stitch on top of the wrong hanging. (photos from previous project because I totally forgot to take pictures for this wall hanging) Insert face palm emoji here!

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 the excess yarn. (feel free to use your preferred method of hanging the project)

ENJOY!
