This wall hanging is worked flat, so be sure to turn your work after completing each row.
This pattern utilizes side and center markers to prevent confusion. Pay attention to the first couple of rows since there aren’t many stitches, but the pattern will begin to form and become more mindless quickly.
Always slip markers as you come to them, and work any increases/decreases outside of the markers.
Feel free to knit this wall hanging using as many or as few colors as you would like. Simply keep yardage differences in mind.
When worked to pattern, the finished wall hanging measures approximately 12 inches wide and 19 inches long, measured from the cast on edge to the bottom point.

Proceed to Strap Instructions
This strap is what we will use to attach the wall hanging to the dowel, and the dowel to the wall. Feel free to substitute this method for any method you would like, such as a crochet chain.

Repeat rows 1-2 until your strap measures 15” long, or your desired length.
f/o and attach each edge to opposite edges of the wall hanging. Weave in any ends.
Proceed to Finishing Instructions
I think tassels are a great addition to this wall hanging. Feel free to add or omit them. I made my tassels to be four inches long, and secured them to each bottom side and point. Refer to this tutorial if needed: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CGABUj4psPv/
Finally, weave in any ends, hanging your beautiful new work of art, and admire it! Enjoy it as a decorative piece, or make it useful by hanging earrings, enamel pins, and the like.
