“ENJOY LITTLE THINGS” CROCHET WALL HANGING

“ENJOY LITTLE THINGS” CROCHET WALL HANGING

Hiii Everyone Am really excited to share this with you!! I have been featured on the blue elephants blog as a guest blogger!! and the free pattern for this crochet wall hanging/tapestry is published there now. Go check it! on the blue elephants blog!

But let me tell you more about what inspired me to make this pattern. When I was making a vision board for 2020. (And by the way am preparing a blog post about how to DIY a vision board)
I thought of my goals, my aspirations, and I also wanted something to remind me to enjoy my time and be grateful and this quote popped in my mind “Enjoy little things” so I put it on my vision board. And as I was thinking of a pattern for my guest blog post this quote came across my eyes and I was inspired!!

Now this wall hanging is in-front of me all the time to remind me of my mantra of enjoying little things that makes me happy. Without always worrying about what I have to do next!
Those things includes drinking coffee in the morning when its all quiet and calm. hugging a hot pad and feeling warm when its cold, seeing the sun rays on my bed (this one make me so happy). A good laughter with my family or friends, as well as playing with my baby Nephew!

Special Stitches and Techniques:

Bobble stitch: Watch this tutorial for the method I used to change colors with the bobble stitches 
Yarn over, insert your hook into the next stitch, pull yarn through (3 loops on the hook)
again yarn over and pull yarn through 2 loops only, as if you are doing the first part of a double crochet (DC) (2 loops on the hook);repeat it until you have 5 HDC on your hook and 1 initial loop (total 6 loops on the hook); yarn over and pull through all 6 loops (1 loop on the hook – pull pretty tight, so your bobble really pops up); and sc in the next stitch.

Surface slip stitching

Now before we write “little things” on the crochet wall hanging

Put a stitch marker in the middle of your wall hanging to mark the space between your two words and count 6 rows from the bottom and put a stitch marker. Now count 10 rows from the marked row then add another one. This will mark the height of your letters!

Now you will have to plan the places of your letters. For me I free handed it. However you can mark it lightly with a pencil.  before you slip stitch your letters on the surface.

Finishing Touches

  1. Work one last row of slip stitches around the 4 edges of the wall hanging
  2. Attach your wall hanging to the wooden dowel as you see in this video 
  3. Cut 51 strands of white yarn that are 21.5”(55 cm)
  4. And attach it to the bottom edge as you see in this video (one strand in each stitch) 
  5. The last step which is optional is to make some Decorative Tassels and attach it to the bottom edge! 

I hope I inspired you to make something beautiful as you! If you made it, share it with me on Instagram. I would love to see how you adapted it and what variations you made 🙂

Take care and happy crocheting.
