Free Crochet Pattern // Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

Free Crochet Pattern // Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

Hey there! I’m back with probably my last design for this year, the easy crochet Christmas tree wall hanging, unless a miracle happens and I inherit super speed with my hook and needles…..I bought my first Christmas present today for one of my kids so I am feeling real accomplished……have you started shopping yet? If you are done shopping I don’t want to hear it, okay?

What can I say, I think designing around Christmas trees are my jam! While I don’t do much with macrame I do love the look of it and that is where this design concept came from. I always see these beautiful macrame hangings all over the place and I decided to create one using crochet stitches instead. AND I AM HERE FOR IT!!!! It turned out so good if I do say so myself. And the fact that it only took 2 attempts to get it right was a bonus.

I chose to use Bernat Make Home Dec yarn because well it is great for “home” related designs, hence the name. It worked up beautifully and provided great stitch definition and texture. I do find that steaming the project after it is done helps smooth out the yarn quite a bit. Sometimes it can look a bit wrinkled especially when adding fringe.

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked from the bottom up. The turning chains at the beginning of each row DOES NOT count as a stitch. I used Jute Twine to hang my piece but you could sub anything here even a piece of the yarn itself.

Abbreviations

  • ch – Chain
  • st(s) – Stitch(es)
  • dc – Double Crochet
  • sc – Single Crochet
  • bo – Bobble

Gauge

10 sts x 8 rows (4 rows of dc, 4 rows of sc, alternating rows starting with dc) = 4in x 4in

How to create the bobble stitch for the crochet Christmas tree wall hanging.
To create the bobble stitch you will yarn over and insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on the hook, 2 loops will remain on hook, yarn over insert hook into same stitch, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, you will now have 3 loops on your hook. Repeat this same step until you have 6 loops on your hook (pictured), then you will yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on the hook.

Finish

Weave in all ends. Cut 21 pieces of yarn 16 inches long and loop through each stitch in beginning chain.

Steam your piece so that the fringe lyes flat, trim fringe if necessary. Cut a piece of twine 22 inches long (or whatever you choose to use) and double knot it around the dowel on each side. Now hang up your piece and admire it!

Modern Christmas decor.
Bobble stitch creates great definition.

    • Hi Diane-I have noticed this yarn has been going in and out of stock lately. You can go to yarnsub.com and type in Bernat Maker yarn and it will give some suggestions. I would definitely keep your eyes peeled on yarnspirations website. They seem to have been restocking this yarn more frequently than before.

  • Hello,
    After you work your bobble stitch are you closing it with a stitch or going directly into the next stitch? I hope that makes sense. Thanks for the pattern!
    Laurie

    • Hi Laurie!
      Once you have all loops for the bobble on your hook you’ll yarn over and pull through all the loops. There are no other steps to close the bobble you just move onto the next stitch. Hope that helps Laurie!

      • Help,
        Thanks for getting back. As soon as I asked that question I realized
        it was an oops on my part. I’m going to try making this with with a worsted weight from my stash but I’m going to look for the Bernat Maker. Thanks again!
        Laurie

    • Hi Madeline – I used 5/16 inch but you could use just about anything it depends on what look you are going for. Using sticks/twigs looks really cute too for a more rustic feel.
