We often think of crocheting as a way to make practical pieces, like blankets, hats, and scarves. But this roundup of crochet wall hanging patterns will show you that it can be a great medium for wall art, too! 

A crochet wall hanging is such a beautiful and expressive way to decorate your home. Not only do you get to show off your crafty skills, but you also get the satisfaction of creating something by hand that’s totally unique.

In this post, we’ll be sharing 20 of my all-time favorite crochet wall hanging patterns. Whether your style is modern, boho, floral, or geometric, there are so many possibilities in this list. Make one to decorate your home, gift to new homeowners, college students setting up dorms, or new parents decorating a nursery.

Wall hangings can be a great pattern choice for beginners, especially if you’ve got a little crochet experience under your belt. Some wall hangings might involve textured stitch patterns and color changes, but don’t be intimidated.  

For crochet beginners, we’ve handpicked a few simple patterns to get you started:

Supplies

Here are some supplies you may need to make your wall hanging.

  • Crochet hook(s)
  • Yarn
  • Other notions (stitch markers, scissors, tapestry needle, wooden dowel, metal ring(s), beads, feathers, etc.)

What yarn is best for crochet wall hangings?

Most patterns in this list use acrylic or cotton yarns in DK and worsted weight. But since wall hangings don’t take a lot of wear and tear, you can really get creative with a variety of yarn types. 

Fiber content. Acrylic and cotton are safe bets, but you can experiment with other types of yarn you have on hand! Wall hangings are great for scrap busting.

Yarn weight. DK or worsted weights are popular, but again, feel free to play around with different sizes too. Thinner yarns create a more delicate look, while bulky yarns make a bolder statement. 

In this list, we’ve included suggested yarns for each pattern. Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton, Red Heart Super Saver, and Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick are some of the most popular options.

Crochet Techniques

Wall hangings are a great way to expand your crochet skills by learning new stitches and techniques! Here are some that you may need to know in order to make your pattern:

Tips and Tricks

With these tricks up your sleeve, your wall art will turn out beautifully every time.

Maintain even tension throughout your project.

First up – keep an eye on your tension! If you notice that some portions of your project are looking tighter or looser than others, it’s most likely a tension issue.

You may notice your stitches getting tighter if you’re feeling stressed, or looser because you’re becoming more relaxed as you crochet. Or it may be as simple as your hands are getting tired! Keep an eye on this, and take breaks as needed.

Another tension trick is to try pulling yarn out from the center of the skein. This allows it to pull more evenly than it does if you pull from the outside, which in turn helps keep your tension more consistent, too.

Get comfortable with color changes.

Next, don’t fear color changes! They may seem intimidating at first, but switching colors is easy once you get the motions down. Check out this step-by-step guide for changing colors in crochet whether you’re working in rows or rounds. And remember, leave a long enough tail to weave in your ends for a seamless-looking color change. 

If you’re a beginner to crochet color changes, try it out on a practice swatch before starting on your wall hanging.

Or, if you want super simple color changes, try an ombre or self-striping yarn! This way, you can get the visual effect of multiple colors without any extra work.

Keep your project edges straight.

Finally, keep your edges straight and true. This gives a polished look to your piece. The most important thing to remember when aiming for straight edges is to count your stitches. Even if you don’t count every row, count every once in a while to make sure you’re still on track!

And don’t forget – you can also block your project to help straighten it out and achieve a more professional finish.
