Chunky square inside a square wall hanging

 

 

What do you do with your left over yarns? I had some gorgeous left over crazy sexy wool from a jumper kit I received from the awesome Wool and the gang. The jumper I made is called heart of mine jumper. The kit comes with everything you need to make it the right amount of yarn in any colour of your choice the pattern to make it and the right size crochet hook, The pattern is very easy to follow and you can make it in no time at all, I chose the colour Cameo Rose such a pretty colour, crazy sexy wool is so squishy and soft to touch imagine how lovely this jumper is to wear.

I was very happy with my new jumper and even more happy because I had nearly one whole skein of crazy sexy wool left over, I wanted to make something visual and special with this last little bit of yarn. I love the texture you get from chunky yarn also this beautiful cameo Rose colour is so pretty and calming I could stare at it all day long that’s why I decided to make a cute chunky wall hanging.

How to make the wall hanging, which also gives you a great excuse to try crazy sexy wool from Wool and the gang.

 

Materials 

150 g of crazy sexy wool

 15 mm crochet hook 

yarn needle

Any stick you can hang your square on

 

The pattern is called a square inside a square. The pattern is not my pattern. I found it on Pinterest from hooksandyarns.blogspot.com. I made my square in just the one colour. You can use any square pattern really, I just love the look and texture you get when using this pattern. When you have finished your square sew in all ends. Now to attach some tassels, I put one tassel through every stitch at the bottom of my square.

 

How to make your tassels

With one piece of yarn 24cm long, fold it half, with the loop at the end push it through your first stitch, then gently pull the yarn threads through your stitch and loop and tighten, repeat to very last stitch. Don’t worry if some of your tassles are longer than the others you can give them a little trim once finished.

 

Attaching your stick

Using your yarn needle sew the stick onto your square,  attach another piece of yarn to each end of your stick which you will use to hang your wall hanging.
