This wall hanging is part of a series of mini wall hangings. It is an easy, beginner friendly Intarsia crochet piece that brightens any room. Since this wall hanging is smaller, it can easily be added to an existing gallery wall, or be placed in a smaller space.

My favorite part about this wall hanging, and its siblings, is that it can be shipped to a friend or family member without much expense. This Mini Heart Wall Hanging would make a lovely Valentine’s Day present for anyone you’ve been missing lately.

Materials

Yarn

  • Yarn Bee True Colors, bulky/category 6 (5oz, 76yds), 100% acrylic
  • You need 3 different colors to complete this individual wall hanging.
  • The yardage needed per color as follows…
  • MC (Ivory) - 8yds/7m, CC1 (Light Blue) - 8yds/7m, CC2 (Coral Pink) - 8yds/7m

Substitutes : Any other bulky (category 6) yarn will work. I suggest trying Lion Brand’s Hometown yarn for the closest feel. If changing the yarn, be sure to check gauge.

Crochet Hook - 8.00mm or correct hook to meet gauge
Scissors 
Tapestry Needle
Measuring Tape
6” Dowel Rod (3/8” diameter), or a stick from the backyard
If you cannot find a 6” dowel, you can cut a 12” dowel in half. Use the second half to make another mini wall hanging, Do not cut the dowel in half until you finished the wall hanging, and make sure the wall hanging will fit on the 6” dowel. Use your judgement to cut the dowel to your desired width.
Extra piece of yarn, twine, or crochet thread for hanging

Gauge and Finished Size
9 STS x 9 Rows = 4” x 4” square
Use the Single Crochet to create the gauge swatch.

Finished Size
5” width & 6.5” height (before, and after, blocking)

Experience Level = Beginner
You will need to know how to Single Crochet before you begin.

Features
This is the 1st of 4 Mini Wall Hangings to be released Spring 2021. Each wall hanging can be placed together, or worked separately. If you’re interested in working more than one of the wall hangings, I suggest buying 4 different colors of the same yarn, 1 skein of Yarn Bee True Colors is enough to make all 4 wall hangings.
