I have got the cutest little project for you today, it’s a Mickey Mouse Wall Hanging, that works up in no time at all. It’s so much fun you won’t want to stop until you’re finished!
This wall hanging will look gorgeous in any room, mine is going in my craft room, although the kids have put in their orders, so it looks like I may be making more!! The colour possibilities are endless, you don’t have to have stripes, I just thought it would look nice. The colours I chose compliment each other beautifully, and it was an excuse to use more mustard! I love this yarn it’s a tweed yarn from Hobbycraft, it comes in a massive 400g ball.

It really is an easy project suitable for a beginner.
I used tapestry crochet, this is where you carry your unused yarn & hide it behind your stitches, until you need that colour again.
This project is made from the bottom up. (starting in the right hand corner)
Row 2 – 9 have 2sc (UK – dc) in the first and last stitches, from row 10 there are no more increases.
For colour changes – change yarn colour on the last step, so….for the last yarn over, pull though two loops on your hook – do this with your new colour.
The wall hanging is made, ends sewn in and blocked before attaching to the stick and adding tassels.
You will need:
a stick (approx 31cm)
A – Mustard
B – Cream
C – Grey
This yarn is only available from Hobbycraft. For readers outside of the UK, don’t worry, they ship worldwide!
But any DK weight yarn is fine, (the mustard I used is aran, but there is hardly any difference between that and the DK) if you prefer to use thicker or thinner yarn, that is absolutely fine, just remember that your finished wall hanging will be slightly bigger or smaller!
Gauge: 10cm x 10cm – 20 stitches x 22 rows
Measurements: Width – 21cm (8.25″)
Height – 20cm (8″)
Height including stick and tassels – 31cm (12″)
Ch – chain
Sl st – slip stitch
St – stitch
Sc – Single crochet – insert hook into next stitch, yarn over pull through stitch, yarn over pull through two loops on your hook. (UK – Double Crochet)
You will find the FREE chart below,
but if you’d prefer….. I have a clearly written pattern (for those that prefer written instructions), beautifully laid out, with full photo tutorial, ‘advert free’ printable PDF version available to purchase from:

Tassels & extra bits
To make 3 tassels
you will need 6 strands of yarn (2 of each colour) 30cm long
Insert hook into the first stitch (from back to the front), place the yarn strands over the hook.
Pull through a little way to form a loop.
Put your thumb and fore finger through the loop.
Grab the tails and pull back through the loop. Trim your ends.
* repeat for the opposite side and the middle.
For the stick yarn
You will need approximately 160cm of yarn and a darning needle.
Thread your needle, start one end – attach to the piece, loop over the stick miss a stitch and go through the next, repeat all the way across. sew in ends.
Yarn for hanging
I used 105cm of yarn, wrapped 5-6 times around the stick (secure with a knot or two) take the opposite end of yarn and repeat on the other end of the stick.
Now all that is left to do….. is hang and enjoy!
