In my part of the world spring is just starting to show itself.  I love tulips and wanted to created something to hang on my front door to welcome spring!  You can also create this with cotton yarn and use it as a dishcloth!  I hope you enjoy it!

Tulip Wall Hanging/Dishcloth

Pattern created by Gayle www.planetmfiles.com

Size: Approximately  9 inches wide and 12 inches long (Length doesn’t include the hanger or the fringe.)

Materials:

  • I used Red Heart Super Saver in color Medium Purple.  If you want to make this a dishcloth, you can use cotton yarn.
  • Crochet Hook – Size H-8 (5mm)

Gauge: Not important

Abbreviations: ch = chain,  sc = single crochet, st = stitch,  spec st = three double crochets that are joined at both the top and bottom.  See my instructions on how to make this special stitch in the Notes section of this pattern.

Notes:

  • How to make the special stitch used in this pattern: My special stitch is 3 double crochets that are joined at both the top and bottom.  To make the special stitch:  yarn over hook, insert hook in next sc, pull up loop, yarn over hook, pull through 1st two loops on hook, yarn over, insert hook in same sc, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over hook, pull through 1st two loops on hook, insert in same sc again, yarn over, pull up loop, yarn over hook, pull through all loops on hook. Special stitch made!

    What a beautiful reminder of Spring starting, I use to crochet a lot when I was younger and reading your instructions I am very tempted to start again. Thank you Gayle

    VERY, very pretty, Gayle! LOVE that purple color, and the fringe is the perfect finish, as is the twig hanger. This reminds me I need to crochet more. ;o) Happy Spring ((HUGS))

    Very nice :-) And my favourite colour too :-) It’s taking spring a long time to get here – if I knew how to crochet, I’d whip up a few of these and get some spring action happening!

    Have a great weekend :-)
