The Sun and Moon Mini Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

Hey Everyone!

I’m back and with a new free wall hanging pattern! This wall hanging pattern is a little different because it doesn’t just have 1 panel…….it has 2! That’s right, this is a 2 panel mini wall hanging and I am so excited to share it with you guys.

I have been obsessed with the theme of the sun and moon for a while now and I figured it was time to act on my idea and create a sun and moon inspired project. So naturally I wanted to design a wall hanging around that theme and from there came The Sun and Moon Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern!

This pattern is super easy to follow and includes the written instructions as well as charts you can follow. I wanted to make sure there were options for everyone because I know that some people like to follow charts (me!) and others like to follow written patterns. So grab your yarn and put on your favorite show and get to crocheting!

It is a total of 7 pages including the front and back cover pages. I also included PDF downloads of the charts for both the sun and moon panels.

Materials

*5.00 mm Crochet Hook

Weight 4 Worsted Weight Yarn in 2 colors

2 Dowel Rods or Tree Branches

*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 these wall hangings I used Caron One Pound in Soft White and Craftsmart Value in Ginger. Craftsmart can be found at Michaels!

Ch = Chain

-Each panel is worked from the bottom up.

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

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

-Each panel is worked in single crochet.

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

Attaching the Fringe

  • To create the fringe, cut 10 inch pieces of yarn in the color you used for the project. 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. (Repeat steps for the sun panel)

Hanging the Project

To attach the hanging 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 of the top of the wall hanging.

Repeat for each stitch on the top of the wall hanging. Knot off and weave in your ends. (repeat steps for the sun panel!)

 

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. (fee free to use your preferred method of hanging the project) Repeat for the sun panel!

ENJOY!
