The Rolling Hills Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern
I’m back and with a new free wall hanging pattern! To no surprise at all, this pattern continues on with the lunar theme I’ve been pretty much obsessed with for the past month or so (hope you aren’t sick of the theme yet :))
This pattern is actually inspired by my most recent full sized wall hanging pattern release, The Moon Ridge Wall Hanging. I am so in love with the pattern and I knew I wanted to make a smaller and similar version to be able to offer for free and my blog!

The Rolling Hills Wall Hanging pattern is slightly different to the Moon Ridge with the addition of the sun. I had so much fun creating this pattern. I hope you all love it as much as I do. Also, feel free to get creative with the color story!

Weight 4 Worsted Weight Yarn (yarn I used listed below)
Dowel Rod or Tree Branch
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.

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 rod or tree branch: using a yarn needle, weave the tail over the dowel/branch and back under into the 1st st on 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 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)

Hi!! I really lucked into your website. I love coaster patterns – and yours – are wonderful! Then, I noticed your wallhangings. Never thought to crochet a piece of art, even though, I think mug rugs are little pieces of art.
So, I have been studying intarsia – what a different way to crochet. So, I have your sun and moon. I’m looking forward to starting my new adventure, Thank you
Now, you have a new one that compliments the set. I was going to copy it, however, it seems I don’t have the option – I downsize all the pages into Word (It’s your free version); please advise. Anyway, thank you so much for this inspiration – deeply appreciated. I’ve grown tired of crocheting afghans. Debbie
Thank you so much Debbie! Do you mean copy and paste the contents to a word document? The copy and paste function is disabled to protect the contents and pictures on the blog. I do offer paid PDF patterns that you are able to print out and follow along in my Etsy shop if that is how you prefer to follow patterns.

do you carry the different colors of yarn along or cut and restart colors in the rows
Hi Patricia! I personally use the cut and tie method because I find that carrying the yarn messes with my tension. Intarsia is also a great method of color changing!
Hi. This is beautiful! I am very excited to make this. I am thinking I would like to make it larger, what are you thoughts on making that work? If I just double everything, do you think that would work?
I am loving this pattern! How are you doing the color changes though? I’ve always done the use the new color as the last pull through but I’m not sure if that’s the best bet.
Hi Joi! The best color changing method is the one that is most comfortable for you. I have a few videos on youtube going over each method if you need a reference. I have a channel link in each one of my blog posts.
