If, like me, you have a penchant for wall hangings and rainbows, this is the perfect project for you!
You’ll only need a few hours to make this statement piece to hang on your wall!
If you’re new to tapestry crochet, or a little rusty, I highly suggest checking out this fantastic website that explains everything you’ll need to know!
For this project you’ll need:
– 3.5mm crochet hook – 300 mm wooden dowel -Scissors
-Stylecraft Special dk in colours: – Darning needle
Let’s start crocheting!
For the wall hangings I make, I like to start with the centre piece.
Below is the grid you’ll need to follow. Each square represents one SC stitch.
Starting in the second chain from the hook, SC in the next 57 chain spaces.
Turn and chain one.
Continue 57 SC along each row for another 43 times, remembering to refer to the graph for colour changes.
Now that the centre piece is made, it’s time to add the point!
With the ‘yay’ text facing away from you (like in this picture), join your yarn to the beginning of the foundation chain.
Chain 1 and SC2TOG into the 1st and 2nd stitch.
SC into the next 53 stitches, finishing with another SC2TOG over the last two.
Turn and chain 1.
Continue to to start and end each row with a SC2TOG, filling in the remaining spaces with SC, until you reach the final row that contains 3 stitches. SC3TOG over these final 3 stitches and fasten off.
To attach the dowel:
SC along the top of the piece, crocheting over the dowel and into the row below.
Tie a piece of yarn to both sides of the dowel.
You may want to add some fringe to the bottom, too!
YAY! We’re finished!
