Apple Wall Hanging: Free Crochet Pattern

November and December have been such busy, crazy months for me and my family that I haven’t had the opportunity to work on as many crochet projects and patterns as I would have liked, but I have one more FREE crochet pattern that I’m ready to share with ya’ll before the new year 🙂

Teachers, in my opinion, are very underappreciated (especially GOOD teachers), so I’ve been brainstorming additional crochet patterns that will compliment my crochet pencil scarf pattern. Over the years I’ve transformed the pencil scarf into a wall hanging for my daughter’s teachers by shortening the scarf and adding their last names to it. This has been such a big hit, so I figured, why not another wall hanging?

This pattern uses all sc stitches and has a decent amount of color changes – you can either cut your yarn and join each color or use the intarsia method (which I prefer).

Let’s get to it!

• Size G/4mm crochet hook
• Worsted Weight Yarn in:
– Tan
– Red
– Brown
– Green
• Scissors
• Tapestry Needle
• 16” long round wooden dowel (3/16” diameter)

Skill Level: Beginner-Intermediate

Guage: Guage is not important.

Blocked Measurements: 10” x 10” (not including fringe)

Additional Notes:
• This pattern is written in US terminology.
• Sizing will vary depending on your tension.
• The pattern is worked in rows from the bottom up.
• Ch 1 and turn at the end of each row. The ch 1 does not count as a st and the 1st st of each row is placed into the last st of the previous row.
• This pattern contains a chart/diagram as well as written instructions. In the written portion of the pattern, the instructions are written as follows: # of stitches followed by a letter that represents which color you a working those sts in.
Example: 8T, 5R = 8 sc in tan, 5 sc in red
• When completing a color change, complete the last sc of your current by inserting your hook into the next st, yarn over, and pull up a loop (2 sts on the hook), yarn over with your next color, and pull through both loops on the hook.
• I created this pattern by working up a graph in Excel. If you prefer using a graph or would like to be able to print the pattern, I offer a printable PDF with a graph in my Etsy Shop for a small fee. This just helps me keep creating free patterns for ya’ll 😉

Fasten off at the end of row 52 and leave a long tail for attaching your piece to the wooden dowel.
Now it’s time to block your piece!

After you have blocked your project, lay your project on a flat surface with the right side facing up and the top of the project closest to you.

Using the long tail that you left attached to your project, thread a tapestry needle and sew through each stitch around the wooden dowel. When you get to the end of the row, fasten off and weave in the end.

Next, you’re going to add fringe to the bottom of your project. I used one 12” strand of tan yarn per stitch (46 total).

With the top of your project still facing you, fold a piece of fringe yarn in half and use your crochet hook to pull it approximately halfway through the stitch.

Next, yarn over and pull both strands through the loop on your hook and tighten.

Repeat this process for each stitch across the bottom of your piece.

Lastly, you’re going to attach a strip of yarn to the dowel so that you’re able to hang your wall hanging. You can make this portion as long or as short as you’d like – it’s all your preference! At this point, you can tie each end of the yarn to either side of the wooden dowel or you can weave one end of the yarn into your work on the left side and then the other end into the right side, just make sure you weave back and forth so that it’s extra secure.

That’s all there is to it!
