The Fall Wall Hanging is the perfect way to bring some fall vibes into your home this season. Have fun working it up and finding the perfect place to hang it afterwards!
Do you love fall? I do love the little bit of chill in the air in the mornings and the pretty colors in the leaves at this time of year. However, fall means that summer is over and winter is coming so it’s also a little bittersweet. I’m not ready to see the snowflakes yet!
This tapestry crochet fall wall hanging is so much fun to work up! Colorwork crochet patterns are one of my favorite types of projects. I love watching the design start to come together more and more with each row worked up.
Enjoy working up this fall wall hanging!

- Worsted weight #4 yarn – Either cotton or acrylic yarn (or a blend) can be used for this project. The wall-hanging pictured in this pattern was made with WeCrochet/Knit Picks Comfy yarn which is 75% cotton and 25% acrylic. This yarn is a little on the thinner side for a worsted-weight yarn. If you are substituting with another yarn, please refer to the gauge as your wall hanging may turn out larger or smaller, depending on yarn thickness. The colorways and approximate yardages used are 200 yds of Ivory (cream), 50 yds each of Peony (burgundy/red), Honey (yellow), and Peapod, 20 yds each of Conch (orange) and Silver Sage (grey).
- To make the knotted fringe as shown, you’ll need a little bit more orange, yellow, burgundy, and green yarn cut in strands to attach to the bottom of the panel. 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 width of 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.
- Ch – chain
- Sl St – slip stitch
- SC – single crochet
- When finished, the fall wall hanging (just the square crocheted piece) measures approximately 13.5” wide x 14.5” tall. This panel was blocked to make it even on all sides and flat.
- 2” square = approximately 10 rows of 9 SC stitches.
- Turned Rows– This project 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 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 against the wall when hanging), 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.
- Video Tutorial – There is not a specific video tutorial for the fall wall hanging, however, to see how a similar wall hanging project is worked up, please see the video tutorial on my YouTube Channel HERE. This video provides more explanation and visuals on how to read a graph, work color changes, pick up and drop yarn, and attaching the dowel for hanging.
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 72 rows of 60 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 (RS) of the project facing you, EVEN numbered rows will have the wrong side (WS) facing you. When you are working on a right side row, 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, make sure you are dropping the yarn on the front (towards you) for the color changes. This will ensure that the front of the wall hanging does not show any of the color changes since all the yarn is dropped and picked up on the back (wrong side).
On the wrong side, you will start to see where you drop and pick up each color, pulling it over to where you need it. Yes, it’ll be a little 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.
Color Key: A = Ivory, B = Peony, C = Peapod, D = Conch, E = Silver Sage, F = Honey
Start the project in color A. Chain 61, SC in 2nd ch from hook and in each stitch across, ch 1 turn (60) *This is row 1 of the graph.
Each row from 1-72 will be completed in SC stitches with a ch 1 and turn at the end of each row. When row 72 is finished, do not fasten off. Continue to the instructions for attaching your project to the dowel for hanging.

*Do not fasten off. Continue to next set of instructions below to finish the top to get your project ready for hanging.
Attaching to the Dowel and Adding the Chain
After completing row 72, 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 and photos below from another one of our wall hanging patterns).
Continue working SC stitches all the way across (60 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 70 (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 Knotted Fringe (Optional)
For the knotted fringe, you’ll need groups of 4 strands of yarn in each color. Each strand measures approximately 11” long. To cut even lengths of yarn in each color, it’s helpful to wrap the yarn around a book four times before cutting the ends.
Bundle 4 yarn strands of yarn together. Use your yarn needle to pass them through the first stitch on the bottom of the wall hanging. Make sure the two sides are even in length and then knot all the strands together and pull it tight.
To create the same look as the wall hanging pictured, all 5 colors were repeated in order. After the first fringe knot, the rest of the fringe will be placed in every 5-6 stitches. When you have added all the strands of fringe and knotted them, trim the strands evenly to your desired length.
You’re all done your Fall Wall Hanging! I hope you enjoyed working it up. Have fun displaying it in your home for the fall season!
