Spring Wall Hanging Free Crochet Pattern


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to my page!


Who's ready to start working on a fresh and colorful project?

Let's get ready to welcome the Spring season with a fun wall/door hanging.


Everything about this crocheted panel screams spring, from the pastel colors to the cute bunny face.


The panel is worked with the tapestry technique that allows you to work with 2 or more colors at the time, carrying the non-worked color inside the stitches.

If you are new to the tapestry technique, here's a helpful tutorial for you to check:

TECHNIQUES REQUIRED


SEAMLESS COLOR CHANGE

Work in the previous color until two loops of the last stitch remain on the hook. Use the new color to complete the stitch, then continue working with the new color as before.


TAPESTRY CROCHET

Color-changing technique that allows you to work a single row of stitches in more than one color; it is worked very tightly with the non-working color carried inside the stitch.


Here below a link where you can find a helpful tutorial for working both techniques:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHHNpXiMhj8




Start your crocheted panel by working 47 chains, work 1 sc into the 2nd ch from the hook, then keep working 1 sc in each ch across. Once you have completed the 1st row, chain 1 and turn.


Remember to always ch1 and turn at the end of each row.


At row #6 you will start creating the bunny pattern by incorporating the second color.

Work with blue yarn until two loops of the last stitch remain on the hook.

Use the white yarn to complete the stitch, then continue working with the new color as before.


Always remember to carry the additional yarn along with you and work over it as you crochet the row.


Do the same when working the nose and the pink section of the ears.

In this case you would carry two additional yarn strands (blue and white) while working the new colors.


Now it’s time to work on the additional parts that will be then sewn or embroidered on the crocheted panel.





Cheeks (pink yarn; make two)


Rnd 1: 6 sc in a mr (6)

Rnd 2: sc inc around (12)

Rnd 3: (1 sc, 1 sc inc) (18)

Rnd 4: (2 sc, 1 sc inc) (24); F/O and leave a long strand of yarn to sew the cheeks to the crocheted panel between rows #10-16.


Embroider the eyes with a long strand of black yarn between rows #19-25 (2 sts wide).

Use a scrap piece of black yarn to embroider a horizontal line on the eye, to create the eye glare.

Use a scrap piece of black yarn to embroider a vertical line below the nose between rows #13-17.



Flower (white and yellow yarn)


Rnd 1: starting with white yarn, 10 sc in a mr (10)

Rnd 2: switch to yellow yarn, 2 ch, [(1 dc, 2 tr into the 1st st, 2 ch, work a sl st into the tip of the last worked tr stitch), (2 tr, 2 ch, 1 sl st into the next st)] rep 5 times; F/O and leave a long strand of yellow yarn to sew the flower to the crocheted panel between rows #31-32.



Let’s create now two blue crocheted STRIPES to insert the wooden dowel into.


Right stripe:

Row 1: insert your hook into the 1st st of the last row, work 1 sc into the same st and 1 sc into the next one (2); ch 1 and turn

Row 2: 2 sc (2); ch 1 and turn

Row 3 -10: rep row 2 (2); F/O and leave a strand of yarn to sew the last row to the opposite side of the panel to create the space for the dowel.


Left stripe:

Row 1: insert your hook into the second-last st of the last row, work 1 sc into the same st and 1 sc into the next one (2); ch 1 and turn

Row 2: 2 sc (2); ch 1 and turn

Row 3 -10: rep row 2 (2); F/O and leave a strand of yarn to sew the last row to the opposite side of the panel to create the space for the dowel.
