Are you the kind of person who walks through a store or browses through Pinterest and thinks “hey, I can make that!”? Before I had kids, I thought that WAY more often than I do now, but every once in awhile the inspiration still strikes. That’s how this Modern Crochet Wall Hanging came to be….sort of….

Why only sort of? Well, I was inspired by a pillow, which isn’t quite a wall hanging last I checked. Once I designed and started on the pillow cover, I suspected that the kiddos would have a hard time not tugging on those bobbles. (Our throw pillows tend to get used and well loved.) Hanging it on the wall means we can still enjoy seeing the pattern and texture but it’s just out of reach from grabby little hands.

Don’t the black bobbles just add the greatest texture and contrast? When you’re working on a pattern where the bobbles are the same color as the rest of the fabric, any quirkiness in the bobbles blends right in. Not so much with black bobbles on a white background! Those quirks start to look like mistakes. Getting good, mostly consistent bobbles took some practice. They still don’t look perfect but I’m probably being picky!

Notes:

The pattern is worked horizontally rather than vertically so when you hang it, the rows run up and down instead of side to side.

Adding the fringe first and then blocking it is the best way to keep the shape of the final piece of fabric. I did it the other way around and the bulk added from the fringe made the fabric lose shape a bit. I used a fabric steamer (link leads to Amazon) to block the fabric and straighten the fringe.
