When I looked around and realized that all of my friends and family who would wear hand-knits had plenty of pieces to keep them warm and stylish already, I turned to knitting pretty pieces to adorn my home.

Yarn wall hangings have been popular for a few seasons, but I wanted a more modern piece that would match the style of my home.

Using smooth cotton yarn, geometrical shapes, and a bunch of knit blooms, this piece makes a perfect gift as well as a quick decor piece for your own domicile!

Knitting this piece in wool would give it a more boho or country feel. Linen would be another option for a contemporary look.

You will need approx 150 yards for the actual hanging, and a mix of various coordinating yarns for the flowers and leaves. For the sample, I used a cotton, wool, and silk yarns for the flowers and a wool for the leaves.

You will also need a 19” round metal floral hoop or embroidery hoop (a hoop that opens and closes is preferred, but I was not able to find exactly this, so I used a regular floral hoop and made a diagonal cut with a heavy-duty wire cutters. I then used super glue to close the hoop after putting the finished piece on the hoop.
