Wee Woven Wall Hanging

The fiber wall hanging trend from the ’70s is back and stronger than ever. Crochet’s sculptural nature and definable rows that can be used as a canvas for embellishment inspired this project: a Wee Woven Wall Hanging. Double-crochet stitches create “bars” to latch fringe around, and half double crochet worked in the front loop adds textural effect. Add simple fringe pieces in different colors and weights of yarn and maybe a touch of embroidery, and it’s easy to create a one-of-a-kind work that can be personalized any way you’d like.
