Crochet Square Wall Hanging

11380045_624408724374859_827906087_n_medium2PLEASE NOTE:  I did not create the square pattern for this wall hanging, but did adapt it from the pattern below to turn a single square into a simple wall hanging.

BabyDROPS 13-20 Crochet Blanket Pattern

Details for my wall hanging:

Supplies
Yarn:  Loops and Threads Impeccable Yarn in Cream from Michael’s Craft Store

Hook:  Size H (5mm)

Use the below portion of the pattern to make your square:
Ch 4 on hook size 4.5mm/US 7 with 2 strands of Alpaca held together and make a ring with a sl st in first ch.

1st round: ch 3 (= 1 dc), *ch 1, 1 dc around the ring*, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with ch 1 and 1 sl st in the 3rd ch from beginning of round, (= 8 dc on round).

2nd round: ch 3 (= 1 dc), *ch 3, 1 dc in the next dc*, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with ch 3 and 1 sl st in the 3rd ch from beginning of round, (= 8 dc on round).

3rd round: Crochet as follows in each ch space: 1 sc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 tr, ch 1, 1 tr, ch 1, 1 dc, 1 ch and 1 sc. Finish with a sl st in the 1st sc from beginning of round, (= 8 leaves on round).

4th round: ch 4 (= 1 tr = 1st corner), *ch 5, 1 sc in the top of the next leaf (between the 2 tr), ch 4, 1 sc in the top of the next leaf, ch 5, 1 tr between the 2 sc in between 2 leaves*, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, but finish with a sl st in the 4th ch from beginning of round, (instead of a tr in between 2 leaves) = 12 ch spaces around the square with a tr in each corner

5th round: In the corner tr crochet as follows: ch 4 (= 1 tr), ch 2, 1 dtr, ch 2 and 1 tr. Continue to crochet 4 tr in each space.
In the tr at the remaining 3 corners crochet 1 tr, ch 2, 1 dtr, ch 2, 1 tr.
Finish the round with a sl st in the 4th ch from beginning of round.

My additions:

After your square is complete – before fastening off, go around the entire square and add a single crochet edge.  This adds stability and structure to your square.
Fasten off, and block your square so it will be nice and flat and square.

Loop a halved piece of yarn through each stitch of the bottom of the square, and trim so they are even.  This creates your fringe.

Stitch a long piece of yarn around a wooden dowel and through each stitch of the top of the square.  Leave a long tail at each end of the dowel and tie together at the ends to form a hanger as seen in the picture.

Hang and enjoy!  Here’s how it looks hanging in my studio!
