Let’s face it, just because you love plants, doesn’t automatically mean you have the greenest thumb on the planet…If you or someone you know keeps buying plants just to watch them slowly die on a shelf (like me…) then this is the perfect in-good-humor thing to stitch up 😀
aka The Boring Shit.

- Tapestry Needle
- 12″ Wooden Dowel Rod or rod of some sort for hanging

The leaf stitch is the decorative border stitch at the bottom of the hanging. There is a short version and a long version.
Long Leaf: ch10, tc in 4th ch from hook, picot, tc in same ch as previous tc, ch3, sl st into same ch as 2 tc, sl st into next 6 ch
Short Leaf: ch7, tc in 4th ch from hook, picot, tc in same ch as previous tc, ch3, sl st into same ch as 2 tc, sl st into next 3 ch
Turning ch does not count as first stitch unless otherwise noted
Piece is worked from the bottom up, beginning with the graph section, the bottom border is added separately.
Ch 43, begin graph in second ch from hook
It is recommended to work RS rows in the back loop and WS rows in the front loop, this will help your letters line up better.

Pattern Instructions Continued
This is when I prefer to sew in any tails and block the wall hanging, before starting to incorporate the dowel/hanging rod 🙂
Choose a color. 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 8, sl st in first ch, ch 38, sl st in 30th ch, ch 38, sl st in 30th ch, fasten off.
You should have a long chain with a loop and a long tail at each end, plus a loop at the center. Attach per instructions below;
- At each end of the cord, push center chain thru the loop to create a slip knot. Slip this on to the dowel about 1/2 an inch from the end. Pull taught. Do this on both ends of the dowel.
- Thread tail into yarn needle and wrap tightly around the center of the chain loop 3 or 4 times. Thread the needle up thru about 5 or 6 chains on the center chain. Pull taught, but be sure not to scrunch up the chain. If you scrunch it up, just pull the chain from above the needle to straighten it back out. Then run the needle back down the chain towards the dowel and snip. Do this on both ends of the dowel.
Now all that remains is to whip stitch the panel along the top and onto your dowel rod!
I use doubled up yarn in my yarn needle and whip stitch once or twice through each stitch along the top edge. I like to run just one stitch if I’m using a natural branch so it kind of peeks through or two for a plain dowel rod so it DOESN’T show through. Totally your choice though!
Get creative with the color! Use the contrasting color from the lettering or match the body, or fuck convention and use something completely different! Do you friend 🙂
