Potted Blooms Crochet Wall Hanging-Free Pattern

This floral wall hanging is a great way to bring a bit of spring freshness indoors, and display your own corner-to-corner project.

Spring is in FULL bloom in my part of the world, and one fun way to celebrate is by brightening up the house with lighter, airier decor. In one particular room of my own house there was already a wall hanging that I’ve been wanting to switch out for something a little more seasonal, which is how this project was born. Hopefully it provides some inspiration for your own crochet wall hanging using c2c.

About This Project

The Potted Blooms design is a project for anyone who would like to create some floral decor for the home and/or make something using c2c to display. Working in dk weight yarn makes the squares smaller than when using worsted yarn or larger weights, and gives the whole thing a slightly more delicate feel. 

Gauge

The gauge for this project is 6 rows by 16sts of dc per 4” square. You can also get the same results from a swatch of 6×6 C2c blocks. 

While the gauge doesn’t matter for this project quite the same way as it would for a garment, final sizing is relevant to make sure your mounting rod is a good size for the finished project. But, be sure to check out this resource if you would like some help and practice with your crochet gauge.

Sizing 

This wall hanging measures 14” square when finished. This includes a round of single crochet edging, but not the extra 2” or so of length that the hanging straps add. 

Materials Needed

To create this design yourself, you will need the following: 

  • E/3.50 mm hook
  • Approx 325 total yards of DK yarn: 170 of grey, 75 of green, 30 of peach, 28 of red, and 18 of blue. Also, a few yards of yellow or another color for the knots that get added to flowers. 
  • A small length of dowel and hanging hardware, as well as any needed tools. 
  • A tapestry needle for weaving in ends(optional)

For my crochet wall hanging, I used the Simply Cotton DK yarn from Paintbox. This cotton was easy to work with, provided a nice finish, and as always with this brand there are plenty of colors to choose from!

Abbreviations Used

For each row of the main c2c panel, the numbers refer to how many blocks of c2c to work in each color. 

Skill Level

As a corner-to-corner pattern, this design is somewhere between the beginner and intermediate levels. On the one hand, crocheting c2c does not involve any complicated stitches. If you know how to chain, double crochet, and slip stitch, then you can work this technique

However, what makes c2c a challenging for some is the way that is crocheted. Working from corner to corner means that the rows are all diagonal. Getting the very first 2-3 rows can be tricky, and even after that it takes a little while to get used to the edge your work to look like stair steps(a result of the block structure). 

If you’ve never tried c2c before, you may want to practice that technique before starting in on this project. But, even as a beginner you can absolutely learn how to do it!

Bind off. If you want, leave 12” or so of a tail at your bind off and use that to attach your straps.

To do this, thread the tail of your yarn, or another piece, through a tapestry needle. Evenly space your hanging straps and hand stitch them onto the top edge of your c2c panel. Check to make sure the whole thing hangs level when you are finished.

Adding Flower Detail

Add French knots, or a some other type of little stitching, to the flowers with a tapestry needle. Here is a tutorial on how to do French knots if these are new to you.
