The Spooky Moon Phase Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

Hey Everyone!

Happy September 1st, aka Halloween 1st in the makers world. To start of the “almost fall” season I would like to introduce you to my newest pattern The Spooky Moon Phase Wall Hanging!

I know how much you guys love the Mini Moon Phase Wall Hanging so I decided to do a special Halloween version of the pattern. I little spider here, a little black cat there and a spider web to tie the whole theme together.

Materials

*4.50 mm Crochet Hook

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

*Yarn Needle

*Scissors

Wooden Branch or *Dowel Rod

*Hand Steamer (optional)

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, Loops & Threads Impeccable and We Crochet Brava Worsted.

For this wall hanging I used the following yarn:

Loops & Threads Impeccable in White-approx. 140 yds

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Black-approx. 63 yds

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Plum-approx. 10 yds

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Lemon-approx. 20 yds

Loops & Threads Impeccable in Pumpkin-approx. 10 yds

Stitch Key (US Terms)

CH = Chain

St/sts = Stitch(es)

SC = Single Crochet

Color Abbreviations

W = White

B = Black

PL = Plum

L = Lemon

P = Pumpkin

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 pattern is written as: # of single crochet stitches (color abbreviation), example: 8 (P) means 8 sc in Plum.

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

  • Fasten off after Row 81 leaving a 2 foot tail.

Attaching the Fringe

  • To create the fringe cut 12 inch pieces of yarn in White. You will need 3 strands of yarn to complete 1 fringe.

To attach the fringe, grab 3 strands of yarn in White. With a crochet hook, push the hook through the far left foundation chain. Fold the 3 strands of yarn in half, looping the middle of the strands onto the crochet hook.

Fold the strands through the loop.

Tighten to create the fringe.

Repeat for every other foundation chain.

Hanging the Project

To attach the project to a 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 branch/dowel. 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!
