Rainbow Dreams Wall Hanging – Free Crochet Pattern
*** I hope you enjoy this free crochet pattern available here on my blog! An ad-free, formatted PDF version of this crochet pattern is also available for purchase here:
I bought this gorgeous roving yarn a while back, with absolutely no clue what I was going to do with it. It was just too pretty to pass up!
I’ve been on a mission to use up some of my stash yarn, and we are also working on redoing my daughter’s bedroom. I thought this yarn would be perfect to make a wall hanging for her bedroom!
I used two balls of Lion Brand Wool Ease Roving Stripes to make this wall hanging, and a dowel rod for hanging when it was finished.
If you’re unfamiliar with the bobble stitch, you can find a tutorial here.
Don’t forget to save this pattern in your favorites and add it to your project queue to save it for later! View this pattern on Ravelry here.
I would classify this crochet pattern as “advanced beginner”. It would be helpful to have had some experience with amigurumi before creating this project.
I’d love to see what you make with this tutorial! Don’t forget to share a photo of your finished work in your Ravelry projects and my Facebook group!
