As I am sure many of you have noticed - wall hangings are the new thing when it comes to home décor! I have spent so much time on Etsy and Instagram drooling over the beautiful Macramé art pieces so many designers have put out,  thinking "Oh my goodness! HOW did they make that?"

I have designed another wall hanging (you can find the pattern in my shop HERE!) but the thing about that design, is that it doesn't have the Macramé feel that I LOVE - it was really more of a wall tapestry. (By the way - stay tuned for that pattern becoming available on the blog! It still continues to be one of my bestselling patterns!). I really wanted the macramé and bohemian vibe in my next wall hanging design. 

So, I came up with the Chenoa Wall Hanging! Isn't she beautiful? 

ALSO - don't you love the stick I used for this? I was inspired by a wall hanging that one of my long-time friends had made, where she used driftwood as a way to hang her project! I didn't have any driftwood - but my backyard is full of branches and sticks! It totally adds a boho chic feel to the wall hanging and is the perfect finishing touch:)

THE TAPESTRY

Chain 53.

Row 1: SC in each chain all the way across (52). Chain 1 and turn.

Row 2: SC in each stitch across(52). Chain 1 and turn.

Note: This is where we begin the mini bean stitch. A helpful video tutorial for this stitch by Hopeful Honey can be found here:

 https://www.hopefulhoney.com/2017/11/how-to-crochet-mini-bean-stitch-easy.html

Written tutorial for the mini bean stitch: To do this stitch, first insert your hook into the closest SC to your hook. Wrap yarn around your hook and pull through the stitch– you will have 2 loops on your hook. Wrap the yarn around your hook again, and insert your hook into the stitch again. Wrap your yarn around the hook, and pull through the stitch for the last time. At this point, you will have four loops on your hook. Wrap the yarn around your hook, and then pull it through all four loops. Chain 1. This completes your mini bean stitch!

Row 3: In 2nd stitch from hook make 1 mini bean stitch. Chain 1, skip 1 SC, and make a mini bean stitch. Repeat this process all the way across, but end your row with a SC in the last stitch. Chain 1 and turn.

Rows 4-11: Skip the first mini bean stitch. Make a mini bean stitch in the next stitch and chain 1. Repeat all the way across the row, but end your row with a SC. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 12: HDC all the way across. Chain 1 and turn.

This is where we start the special technique of HDC in the 3rd loop. A helpful video tutorial from Moogly Blog can be found here: http://www.mooglyblog.com/third-loop-half-double-crochet/.

Written tutorial: First, locate the front and back loop of the stitch. The third loop is the loop beneath the back loop. HDC in this loop - this will push the front and back loop to the front to create a “knitted” or "ribbed" look. 

Row 13: HDC in the 3rd loop 22 times. FPTC in next 10 HDC and HDC in the 3rd loop 22 times. This starts the foundation for your cable work. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 14: HDC 22 times. At this point, your project should look like this (photo below: note that this is the back of your work):

Picture_20180226_103106473.jpg

Insert your crochet hook into the closes HDC BEHIND your FPTC (as shown in the photo below.)

Picture_20180226_103211309.jpg

Make 10 DC’s – one in each HDC.

Your project should now look like this (photo below):

Picture_20180226_103247756.jpg

Complete the row by making 22 more HDC. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 15: Make 22 HDC in the 3rd loop. Make 2 FPTC in the first 2 FPTC. Skip 3 FPTC, and make 3 FPTC in the next 3. Going behind your work, make 3 FPTC in the skipped stitches. Make 2 FPTC in the last 2 FPTC. At this point, your work should look like this:

Picture_20180227_104208379.jpg

Make 22 HDC in the 3rd loop. Chain 1 and turn. This is what your work should look like:

Picture_20180227_104303919 (1).jpg

At this point, we will just be repeating this process until we are finished with the cable work of the hanging.

Row 16: HDC 22 times. 10 DC in each of the next 10 DC, HDC in the next 22 HDC. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 17: HDC in the 3rd loop 22 times, make 10 FPTC in each of the next FPTC. HDC in the 3rd loop in the next 22 stitches. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 19: Repeat Row 15.

You are now finished with the cable section of your wall hanging!

At this point, your work should look like this (photo below):

Picture_20180301_133035245.jpg

Row 39: *Skip 1 HDC and make a mini bean stitch in the 3rd loop. Chain 1.* Repeat from * for a total of 11 times. At this point you will reach your cable work. Insert your hook into the 2nd FPTC and the 2nd DC stitch directly behind it as shown in this photo below:

picMonkey0.5101398396350207.jpg

Make a mini bean stitch. Work as you would otherwise: Chain 1, skip 1, make a mini bean stitch – except for inserting your hook into both the front and back stitches like we did above, for a total of 5 times.

*Skip 1 HDC and make a mini bean stitch in the 3rd loop. Chain 1.* Repeat from * for a total of 11 times. SC in last stitch. Chain 1 and turn.

Rows 40 – 49: Skip the first mini bean stitch. Make a mini bean stitch in the next stitch and chain 1. Repeat all the way across the row, but end your row with a SC. Chain 1 and turn.

At this point your work should look like this:

picMonkey0.1589604385302702.jpg

Row 50: SC all the way across. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 51: SC all the way across. Fasten off and weave in ends.

The Fringe:

At this point we are all finished with crocheting! We just need to add the fringe to our wall hanging.

Note: You can make the fringe of your wall hanging any length you would like! This is just the length I chose to use😊

Cut 42 12 inch pieces of yarn.

We are going to start by adding fringe to the posts of the HDC from Row 38.

How to add fringe:

Insert your hook into the post of the HDC as shown in the photo below.

picMonkey0.7557705431844757.jpg

Take a 12 inch strand of yarn, and wrap your yarn around the hook as shown in the photo below:

0402181007 (1).jpg

Pull the yarn half-way through the post so it looks like the photo below:

picMonkey0.5016849729304412.jpg

Knot the strand as shown below and pull tight:

picMonkey0.053404948372347216.jpg

When you have finished pulling the strand tight, it should look like the photo below:

picMonkey0.37136386636809315.jpg

Add fringe to every HDC post in Row 38 on either side of the cables. At this point, your work should look like this (note: it will look better once we trim it):

picMonkey0.7400446801814521.jpg

Cut 52 18 inch pieces.

Use the same process to add fringe all the way across the bottom row of your wall hanging. Afterwards, your work should look like this:

picMonkey0.7415717697529318.jpg

Now – lets shape the fringe! I just cut the yarn at an angle and trimmed up the ends so it looked even. You can, however, make the fringe one length if you would like to and that is what you are more comfortable with.

Now – lets shape the fringe! I just cut the yarn at an angle and trimmed up the ends so it looked even. You can, however, make the fringe one length if you would like to and that is what you are more comfortable with.

Next – adding the dowel or stick to your wall hanging. This part is so easy!

Simply cut 9 strands of yarn (they don’t need to be very long – I made mine about 4 – 5 inches).

Insert each strand of yarn into the top row of your wall hanging (make sure you are evenly spacing each strand) and pull each strand halfway through.

Take your stick, and the strands tightly around.

Shift the knots to the back of your work so you can’t see it when its hanging!

Voila! Your beautiful wall hanging is complete!
