The Teeny Weanie Christmas Cactus Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

Hey Everyone!

I’m back and with a new Teeny Weanie crochet pattern! This one is a holiday pattern dedicated to my fellow crocheters in the warmer climates. Introducing The Teenie Weanie Christmas Cactus Wall Hanging! Just when I thought nothing could top The Teeny Weanie Christmas Tree pattern this little gem came to mind.

I have been obsessing over nothing but holiday patterns lately! They literally wont stop coming to my mind. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but I keep a white board next to my bed just in case I get a pattern idea in the middle of the night. I actually designed The Very Bobble Christmas pattern at 4 in the morning because I couldn’t go to bed without drawing it out! (insert face palm emoji here, lol)

Grab a copy of The Very Bobble Christmas pattern here!

Anyways (lol), I hope you enjoy the pattern and I can’t wait to bring you more holiday themed patterns. Wishing you and yours the Happiest of Holiday’s!

Happy Crocheting!

Materials

*4.50 mm Crochet Hook

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

Dowel Rod or Tree Branch

*Yarn Needle

*Scissors

*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:

We Crochet Brava Worsted in White – approx. 20 yards

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Avocado – approx. 10 yards

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Wine – approx. 2 yards

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Caution – approx. 2 yards

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Dove Heather – approx. 1 yard

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Mint – approx. 2 yards

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Custard – approx. 1 yard

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Seraphim – approx. 2 yards

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Red – approx. 2 yard

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Orange – approx. 2 yard

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Canary – approx. 1 yard

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Alfalfa – approx. 1 yard

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Cornflower – approx. 1 yard

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Cotton Candy – approx. 1 yard

We Crochet Brava Worsted in Rouge – approx. 1 yard

  • This is the perfect project to use up your scrap yarn!

  • Fasten off after Row 33 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 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 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 the excess yarn. (Feel free to use your preferred method of hanging the project)

Enjoy!
