Best yarn for wall hanging
As I said, I chose a self striping ombre yarn for my design. This is the Bead yarn Macrame multicolor. It’s a blend yarn with 80% recycled cotton and 20% polyester. Cotton is great for such projects because it can easily maintain its shape.
This yarn can also be used to make a macrame wall hanging if you are familiar with this craft, too. It features really long stripes of color, plus different shades of color within each stripe, hence the ombre result.
I have compiled a list with ombre, multicolored, and solid yarns that would be suitable for this project, below. Please be aware that every self-striping yarn is different and your final outcome may be completely different than mine.

Ombre and multicolor:
Making your own yarn for your crochet wall hanging
If for whatever reason you can’t find any of these yarns listed above to make your project, you can shop your own stash. You can either make it in a solid color or if you have enough colors from the same yarn weight you can combine them to make your own ombre yarn.
I would definitely suggest cotton yarns or cotton blends for this project, but wool and acrylic would work out well, with a little blocking involved.
Other crochet projects you might like
From left to right:
You will need:
Gauge: 12 sts x 12 rows is 4” in sc
Yardage: approximately 142 yds (130 m) for the wall hanging and 22 yards (20 m) for the fringe.
Dimensions: 10″ x 14″ (26 x 36 cm)
The fringe is about 4″ (10 cm) long.
WS: wrong side
RS: right side
sc: single crochet
Psc: picot single crochet
The picot single crochet is a stitch that is worked on the wrong side of the fabric but it will appear on the right side. It might just need a little push on your behalf when you complete the stitch.
Psc: Insert the hook in the next st, yo and pull up a loop. (Yo and pull through 1 loop) x3, as you would normally do for a ch 3. Yo and pull through both loops on the hook. Push ch 3 to the back (to the right side, that is) of the fabric when working the next st.
If you are working with an ombre yarn like mine, leave a long tail about 3,5 yards (3 m) before you start your wall hanging. It will be used to attach the wall hanging to the dowel (or driftwood if you like) with no disruption of color.
The length of the tail will also be determined of how wide your wood is. It’s better to leave too much than too little.
If, on the other hand you are going to make it with a solid color, feel free to skip this step.

Cut yarn in the last row and weave in this end. We are going to cut and attach the fringe, now.
How to add fringe to crochet – photo tutorial
Start by cutting pieces of yarn around 12″ (30 cm). You are going to place two strands of yarn in each stitch, so you are going to need 62 strips of yarn.
Take two strands of yarn and fold them in half. Insert your crochet hook under both loops of a stitch in the last row. Take the yarn and pull it through. You can change to a bigger hook for an easier grasp.
Don’t pull the yarn all the way through, of course. Just enough to form a loop.
Grab the ends of yarn and pull them through the loop with your crochet hook or your hands.
Tighten the knot and adjust the fringe if needed. Place two pieces of yarn in each stitch of the last row and give them a good haircut when you are done to make them as even as possible.
How to sew the crochet wall hanging on the dowel:
Thread a needle to the long tail you in the beginning of your project. Insert the needle under both loops in the first stitch from back to front. This will secure the yarn and bring it on the right spot. place the dowel on top of your wall hanging. Wrap your yarn around the dowel and insert your needle from the back to the front again. Repeat the last step until the last stitch. Secure the yarn on the back of your work and weave in that end.
