Free Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern – Shit.

I mean people keep saying you should speak your truth. And sometimes…Shit. is a complete sentence. If you agree, this free wall hanging crochet pattern is for you my friend.

When I imagined putting my own personal favorite word on a tapestry (see Fuck.) it only seemed natural that the next pattern be Shit. I like to think that George Carlin would approve…

I hope you’ll enjoy this pattern as much as I enjoyed dreaming it up <3

Shit. - Free Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

This is the second design in the “To the Point” Series. This is a super easy and quick pattern to work up. The main body of it is worked as a graph in single crochet stitches. 

If you need some help in the colorwork area, I recommend this tutorial by my friend Claire over at E’Claire Makery. Since this is a one-sided piece, intarsia is by far my recommendation for working your color. It looks all nice and clean when you’re done 🙂

Top it off with a few decorative rows, slip it on to a 12″ dowel rod and you’re good to go! 

Stitch it up in a weekend and you can be telling the world just how you feel in no time!

Or WIP it up for a friend who has a love affair with the word shit. You will be the coolest person they know 😀

Image of various crochet notions and yarn. Lion brand comfy cotton in whipped cream, lion brand ice cream cotton blend in grape, clover 4.5mm hook, yarn needle, reading glasses and wooden dowel rod. All things used in the Shit. wall art crochet pattern.

Notions -

Gauge

Using US #7 (4.5 mm) and yarn (A) 15 single crochet stitches and 17 rows = 4”

Why gauge? If you want your piece to fit on the 12″ dowel rod, gauge matters. If you are fine with needing to cut a larger/smaller dowel, then it matters less.

beg – beginning

ch – chain

dc – double crochet

sl st(s) – slip stitch(es)

sp(s) – space(s)

st(s) – stitch(es)

tc – triple crochet

WS – wrong side

Pattern Notes

  • Try playing with different size yarn and corresponding hooks to achieve different tapestry sizes, just remember you’ll have to adjust the dowel rod to match

Finishing

Hanging Cord

Choose a color, I prefer to use the same color as the background, but you do you. We’re going to create a cord using a simple crocheted chain.

Leave a generous tail at the beginning and end of this piece, it will be used to help secure the cord to the dowel in the final step. I like to leave about 18in.

ch 10, sl st in first ch, ch 70, sl st in tenth ch from hook, fasten off.

You should have a long chain with a loop and a long tail at each end. See 1st photo on Page 8 for visual.

Block

Sew in those ends and then BLOCK IT with the main piece (not including the hanging loops/tube) measuring around 10″ x 14″ 

I know, I know, blocking is no fun. But blocking can mean the difference between a nice rectangular flat piece and a piece that looks like it belongs in a fun house. Block it damn it! Love you <3

I find that I prefer steam blocking for these pieces, it dries faster. BE CAREFUL with steam if you go with an acrylic yarn, overheating acrylic will “kill it” making it super shiny and drapey (totally a real word right? Right.) Unless, of course, that’s the look you want, then kill away 🙂

These are the mats I use and I love them!

Thread Dowel Rod

Thread the dowel rod through the loops/tube at the top of the piece. You may need to bust out a bit of sandpaper if the dowel is not smooth and the threads catch. Don’t have sandpaper? Try a nail file to at least smooth out the worst spots.

Now high five yourself because you're done my friend!

Share your amazingness with the world!

It brings me great joy to see how you make these patterns your own!
