Kindness Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

This Kindness Wall Hanging is such a fun, cheerful, and feel-good crochet project! Enjoy working it up and finding the perfect place to display it afterwards!

Throw Kindness Like Confetti Wall Hanging

I have been using the WeCrochet/KnitPicks Brava Worsted yarn line for awhile for many of my projects and I love it. When I saw the speckled colorways come out, I was thrilled to see the Cake Pop one! It immediately made me think of sprinkles or confetti, which brought me to thinking of this quote, “Throw Kindness Like Confetti,” which is a great message for spreading kindness.

This Kindness Wall Hanging project has been on my mind for awhile now, so I’m excited I finally worked it up this summer!

To make the Kindness Wall Hanging, you will be working from a graph using the intarsia crochet technique (explained further in the pattern). Once the main panel is worked up, you’ll crochet it to a dowel for hanging. The fringe is added at the end.

This project would also make a great pillow! You’d just need to work up a second panel the same size as the first one and then crochet them together, adding stuffing or a pillow form in the middle.

Enjoy working up this fun and colorful crochet wall hanging!

Materials:

  • Worsted weight #4 yarn – This project was made using WeCrochet/Knit Picks Brava Worsted yarn in the Cake Pop Speckle and Asphalt Heather colorways. You’ll need approx. 270 yds of yarn in a main color for the background and approx. 90 yds in an accent color for the letters. Another yarn, either cotton or acrylic, can be substituted instead. Please refer to the gauge as your wall hanging may turn out larger or smaller, depending on yarn thickness. Note that this yardage applies to the main panel only. To make the rainbow fringe as shown, you’ll need a little bit of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink yarn cut in strands to attach to the bottom of the panel at the end. The yarn for the fringe is not include in the yardage calculations above.  
  • Crochet Hook – 4 mm size crochet hook
  • Wooden Dowel (or similar material) – a 5/16” thick dowel was used for the wall hanging pictured. The dowel was cut to approx. 1-1.5 inches wider than the panel. You can also use a pre-cut 18” dowel and trim it down a touch or leave it slightly long on the sides.
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends.

Stitches Used:

  • Ch – chain
  • Sl St – slip stitch
  • SC – single crochet

Gauge

  • 2” square = approximately 10 rows of 9 SC stitches.

Finished Size:

  • When finished, the wall hanging panel (just the square crocheted piece) measures approx. 16” wide x 15.5” tall. Blocking your project is Note that the panel was blocked to make it nice and even and flat.

Important Notes:

  • Turned Rows– Each panel is worked in turned rows of SC stitches. At the end of each row, chain 1 and turn. Chain 1 stitches do not count towards stitch count.
  • Color Changes – You will be changing colors often in this pattern. To change colors, complete the last SC in the first color up until the last yarn over. Yarn over with the new color and pull through last step of the SC stitch. So, your SC will go like this: insert hook into last stitch of the first color, pull up a loop, yarn over with new color, pull through all loops on hook. Now you will be working in the new color until you change colors again.
  • Intarsia Crochet Tips – For this Kindness Wall Hanging project, you will be using the intarsia crochet technique. When you change colors, you will not be carrying the unused colors along under your stitches. Instead, you’ll be dropping the color that you are finished with (leaving it attached) and picking up the next color, pulling it over to where you are working the stitches. There will be a right side (RS) and wrong side (WS) of this project.  You’ll see the color changes and the yarn traveling over on the wrong side (back of the panel that will be inside the pillow), but it will not be visible on the front. You’ll need to make sure you are only dropping and picking up your yarn on the wrong side of the project so it’s not visible on the right side (front). I’ve explained this further in the Graph Notes below.

Throw Kindness Like Confetti Graph Instructions

Below, you’ll see the graph for this project. Each box in the graph counts as one SC stitch. This means you’ll be working 78 rows of 71 stitches, following the color changes in the graph.  

IMPORTANT NOTE – To read this graph, you will be starting at the bottom right and working your way across in back-and-forth rows. All ODD numbered rows will have the right side of the project facing you, EVEN numbered rows will have the wrong side facing you. When you are working on the right side (RS) or even numbered rows, make sure you are dropping the yarn to the back (away from you) for the color changes. When you are working on a wrong side (WS) row (odd numbered rows), make sure you are dropping the yarn on the front (towards you) for the color changes. This will ensure that the front of the pillow cover does not show any of the color changes since all of the yarn is dropped and picked up on the back (wrong side).

On the wrong side, you’ll start to see where you drop and pick up each color, pulling it over to where you need it. Yes, it’ll be messy looking with all the ends and yarn carried across, but it’s the back so you won’t see it once it’s hanging on the wall.

Remember to keep consistent tension, even when working with the different colors. This is so your panel comes out nice and even on the sides. However, if it’s a little off at the end, blocking it will help.

I have also provided written instructions below for working all the color changes in the graph.

Written Instructions

For the instructions below, “A” is the main color (Cake Pop Speckle) and “B” is the accent color (Asphalt Heather).

Row 1: In color A, chain 72, SC in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across, ch 1, turn (71)

Rows 2-78: SC in each stitch across (following the graph or written instructions for the color changes), ch 1, turn (71)

*After row 78, do not fasten off. Continue to instructions to attach your project to the dowel for hanging.

You may choose to either use the written notes below for the color changes or follow the graph. In the written notes below, the row number, number of SC stitches in each color, RS/WS rows, and the direction you are traveling (relating to the graph) are included.

Get your Kindness Wall Hanging Ready for Hanging

Attaching to the Dowel and Adding the Chain

After completing row 78, ch 1 and turn so you now have the right side (RS) facing you. Line up your dowel along the top of your project. Now, you’ll work one last row of single crochet stitches, however, you’ll be working these stitches over the dowel. To make your SC stitches, insert your hook into the stitch, passing under the dowel. Yarn over on the other side of the dowel and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through both loops on your hook (see video tutorial).

Continue working SC stitches all the way across (71 sts in total). When you get to the other end, do not fasten off. Next, you’ll be making the long chain for hanging your project.

Chain 80 (or your desired length for the hanging chain), join with a slip stitch to the first stitch on the other side of the project. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Adding the Fringe (Optional)

To add a fringe, you’ll be attaching strands of yarn to each of the stitches along the bottom of your project. You’ll need 71 strands of yarn in total, each about 17 inches long (depending on how long you’d like your fringe). For the wall hanging pictured, seven different colors were used to create the rainbow effect.

To attach fringe:

With the front of your project facing you, insert your hook through a stitch. Fold a strand of yarn in half and place it on your hook. Pull the halved yarn partially through the stitch. Then knot the yarn by passing the ends through the loop.

When you’ve added all of the strands of fringe, trim it evenly to your desired length.
