Inspiration & Design
I don’t know about you but I like to keep crocheting all through the year. Firstly, my hands are lost without a crochet project on the go. Secondly, I use crochet to relax and that’s so important just now. However, as much as I love making all the cosy things and using warm yarn it can get very uncomfortable during summer!
During our last heatwave I was looking for ideas for my next pattern and thought how nice it would be to work with cotton. Cotton is lovely and cool to crochet with when it’s warm weather.
At the same time, I’d also been thinking about decorating the walls in my craft space with some prints or art work. Or maybe one of the beautiful woven wall hangings or macrame pieces that you see on Etsy.
I even have a small loom and thought about trying to weave something myself. But how long would that take and would it be any good!
So, two problems, one solution! Crochet a cotton wall hanging!
This easy, modern crochet wall hanging pattern is perfect for beginners. Like the Glass Pebble Scarf, it’s a simple, one stitch repeat for the entire project.
Easy to Customise
The Sage & Blush Crochet Wall hanging is a really great project to customise. Change the colours to use up some of your cotton yarn stash, to match your own home decor, to make a new home house warming gift or for a baby shower / nursery gift.
I used the inexpensive, 100% cotton yarn Scheepjes Cahlista in five different shades.
My main reason for using this yarn was that it comes in 109 shades (!) and I had my heart set on a particular colour-way. I mean, with that many different shades to choose from you’re bound to find what you’re looking for!
However, once I started crocheting with it, I loved it for more than just the colours. It’s a lovely, smooth yarn that doesn’t easily split and it just glides over your hook.
The pattern includes some substitute yarn recommendations or you could use yarnsub.com to help you find an alternative.

Working in single crochet with 4mm hook, after spray blocking swatch:
16.5 stitches, 19 rows to 4″ / 10cm
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS (without fringe):
10.5in / 27cm wide
12in / 30.5cm long
Level 2 / Easy
I chose to stitch into the bottom bump of the foundation chain.
Starting chains do not count as stitches.
ABBREVIATIONS (US TERMS):
Ch – chain
Sc – single crochet
St – stitch
< > – stitch count
SETUP Ch 44 (43 st + 1 turning ch) in colour A.
ROW 1 Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc into each ch, turn. <43>
ROW 2 Ch 1, sc in first sc, sc into each sc, turn. <43>
Repeat row two 55 times more (57 rows in total), with the following colour changes:
Colour A – 13 rows
B – 8 rows
C – 5 rows
D – 21 rows
E – 3 rows
D – 7 rows
At the end of the last row before a colour change, make your final sc stitch up to the point where you have two loops on the hook ready for the last yarn over. Then make the yarn over with the new yarn colour.
FINISHING Weave in ends and block.
Cut 43 strands of yarn, each 17in / 43cm long.
Each tassel is made of one strand of yarn, folded in half.
The combination used in the pattern is as follows, but this can be customised as you wish:
x6 strands of colour A, x6 of B, x6 of C, x24 of D and x1 of E
- There are 43 spaces between the edges of the wall hanging. Insert your crochet hook through the 22nd space from the edge of the wall hanging and one row up from the end. Insert your hook from front of work to back and up through the same space in the row above.
- Now place the loop of the folded yarn colour E over your hook, grab and pull the loop through the spaces. This middle pink strand marks the centre of the tassel fringe and makes it easier to add a symmetrical colour-way.
- As you pull the loop through try to keep the ends of the strand even.
- Once the loop is far enough through, pass the ends of the strand through the loop. Pull the ends gently to make a tassel.
- Then pull the loop tighter to make your tassel snug and secure.
- Add another tassel in each space along, following the colours in the picture / in the following pattern:
The fringe can be left as it is or the cotton can be combed out to add more volume and texture.
Then trim the fringe until it is even.
TO ATTACH STICK
Cut a strand of yarn in D 180in / 457cm long.
- Tie a knot through the last chain at the top of the wall hanging and weave in the end.
- Wrap the yarn over the stick round the front to the back and stitch back through the chain from back to front
- Keep wrapping the yarn over the stick and back through the top chain, skipping a chain each time.
- Once the end has been reached tie another knot and weave in the end.
- With the leftover yarn, wrap the yarn end round one end of the stick 4 times and knot. Repeat at the other end.
Your crochet wall hanging is now ready to be hung over a nail or hook!
