Hi everyone and welcome to the written crochet pattern for the Boho Sweetheart Wall hanging. This pattern is a great way of using up some left-over yarn and creating a beautiful accessory for your craft room or a baby’s nursery. I have used dk weight yarn, but you can use whatever you wish, please bear in mind if you use a thinner yarn then your hearts will be smaller and if you use a thicker yarn your hearts will be bigger. I hope you have fun crocheting this gorgeous wall hanging!


Written in US terms Advanced Beginner


Tools

· Any Yarn and Any Hook (I used dk and a 5mm hook)

· Scissors and sharp scissors for the tassel

· Tapestry Needle

· Dowel or a treated stick from outside – There are many tutorials on how to treat your stick. I sanded mine down and removed the bark. Then soaked it in bleach and water for 3 days, dried it out and applied some wood stain. Mine is roughly 25cm long but you can use any length that you wish.

· Fabric Glue/Superglue (optional)

· Wooden/plastic beads (optional) Make sure they fit over your crochet chain – if you use a thicker yarn, you will need a bead that is wide in diameter.


Stitches

Ch – Chain

Slst – Slip stitch

Dc – Double Crochet

Tc – Treble Crochet

St - Stitch

Sk - Skip

RS – Right side

WS – Wrong side


Notes

· Ch3 counts as a st.

· Ch1 does not count as a st.


Construction and Colour Planning


There are two hearts that you can pick from, or you can use both designs. One is made on the right side only and you will fasten off after each round. This heart is great for using up little scraps. The second heart is made in the round, and you will turn your work after each round. You do not need to fasten off after each round so it is perfect for making it in one colour.

Both hearts have 3 rounds each. How many hearts you make is completely optional. It depends on how big you would like your wall hanging.

I made 9 hearts in total, but you can always make more if you wish.



Pattern – Make 9 Hearts


Heart 1


When making this heart you will be fastening off after each round and re-joining your yarn in the bottom corner chain space with RS facing each time.

Fasten off and weave in ends. When weaving in the last end, go straight down and pull tight, this well help accentuate the dip in the top of the heart.




Assembling


Next you will assemble your hearts. I had 3 on each section and I made each one different a

length.


I made the middle section first…


Take your bottom heart, place a slip knot around your hook, insert your hook into the back of the heart coming out of the front and across the sc from the last round, going through to the back again, yarn over and make a slst across the sc to attach the yarn.

Next, I made a ch of around 4cm, keep a note of how many chs you made, then slst to the bottom chsp of the middle heart, fasten off.

Rpt the exact same process for the middle heart and the top heart to join them together.


You can either weave in your ends or snip them close to the knot, leaving a small tail and dab some glue on them to stop them unravelling. I chose to use a little bit of glue.


Once the glue is dry, you will attach the hearts to the centre of your dowel/treated stick. Using the same process as before, attach yarn with a slst across the centre st of the heart and ch the same amount that you used to attach the other hearts, turn your last ch into a big loop, big enough to go over your dowel/treated stick, loop it through the dowel and pull it tight, then wrap the working yarn around the dowel a few more times, snip off a long tail and use a needle to weave through the back of the loops to secure. I also dabbed some glue on the back of the tail end.

Next you will repeat the same process for the left and right hearts. You can add more or less chs in between each heart to make them all different lengths, or you can keep them all the same length. It’s completely up to you.


If you would like to add some tassels onto the hanging, then they will need to be attached before the left and right heart sections go on to the dowel, see below for tassels instructions.




Adding Tassels


Next, we will add some tassels, these are optional but really help to bring out the bohemian look.


Make a ch as long as you wish and attach to the dowel in the same way that you attached your hearts.


If you wish to add a bead or two, now is the time, just feed it through the bottom end of your chain




Cut 6 strands of yarn around 30cm long.



Place them all together and fold them in half to create a loop in the middle.


Yarn strands, a wooden stock and a tape measure


Place your hook through the last chain.


Yarn with a bead and a crochet hook


Take your yarn and put the middle loop that you created over the top of your hook.

Carefully pull the loops through the ch making sure each piece of yarn goes through.



Take your hook out and gently widen the loop with your thumb and forefinger. Then pull the tassel ends through the loop. Be sure to also pull through the yarn tail from the ch.



Yarn and a tape measure



Pull each strand tight to neaten up your fringe. Trim ends with sharp scissors. Rpt for the other end of the tie. I added 3 tassel strands.



A tassel and a pair of scissors


Finally, you will add some yarn to each end of your dowel so you can hang the wall hanging. Alternatively, you can skip this part and hang it directly from two nails in the wall.


Create a slip knot with your yarn, making sure you leave a long tail, slst it around one end of the dowel, pull the knot tight, make a ch the length that you want the hanger to be and loop it over the opposite end of the dowel, tighten the loop around the dowel to secure.


Wrap the tail end around the dowel a few times and use your needle to weave it through the loops to secure. Make you sure you do the same with opposite end that you joined it with. Dab some glue on the back for extra security.


Then that’s it, you’re all done.
