Hey everyone! My name is Brianna (I go by Brie to keep things simple) and I am the designer and maker at Fiber and Fern. I started following Jessica's Instagram a while ago, and she has always been such an inspiration to me. Her faith in God is so unashamed, brave, and yet transparent and loving, and she reaches people with such a genuine compassion in a way that I only wish I could emulate! Of course, she also designs amazing crochet patterns working with huge brands – so she is basically everything I want and hope to be in my maker journey. So, you can just imagine my ecstatic delight (and also pure unbelief!) when I found out I would be a featured maker here on The Hook Nook Life!
Although I have been able to crochet ever since I can remember, I started crocheting as a hobby about a year and a half ago, when I was basically sitting on a couch all day with horrible morning sickness while being pregnant with my youngest son. I had to do SOMETHING else to keep my mind off my misery - so I picked up my hook! Really, I am so glad I did, because it got me through one of the hardest seasons of my life. Since then, my hobby has evolved into a side hustle that gives me so much life. The idea that I could create something, and that someone else could repeat my design – and yet still make it completely their own – was completely addicting!
Today, the pattern I will share with you is The Everly Wall Hanging – a design that ever since it has been hanging up in my living room has gotten more “ooh’s and aah’s” than I have received from any of my other pieces. 😊 The wonderful thing about this pattern is that it is so versatile – you can be creative on the fringe, choose a heavier yarn for a larger wall hanging, and it can be a pattern made in summer or winter since it can be used as home décor year round!
- 4 mm hook
- Approx. 250 yards of DK Weight Yarn (Loops and Thread Joy DK in Mint used in example). NOTE: If you decide too, you can absolutely use a different weight yarn – just keep in mind this will affect this size of your wall hanging, and the hook size you choose to use.
- Dowel/Driftwood/Branch for mounting your wall hanging
- Tapestry Needle
This pattern is written in US Standard Terms.

Gauge: The finished dimensions of the body of the wall hanging (the wall hanging without fringe) are: 15 inches by 12 inches (without fringe). To achieve these dimension’s your gauge will need to be: 10 rows of 10 SC = 2.5 inch square.
Pattern Notes: The Chain 1 at the beginning of each row does NOT count as the first stitch unless otherwise specified. There are instructions for adding fringe, tassels, and mounting the wall hanging – but keep in mind that there are always helpful video tutorials on Youtube if you need them.

The wonderful thing about fringe is that you can make it any length you want! Here is how I did it:
1. Cut 48 18-inch strands of yarn.
2. Insert your hook into the left-most bottom corner stitch of the wall hanging.
3. Fold your strand of yarn in half, and insert your hook into that loop (as shown in the photo below).
4. Pull that loop through the stitch.
5. Wrap the folded strand around your hook as shown in the photo below:
6. Pull through the loop and tighten. Your work should look like the photo below:
7. Complete this process all the way across the bottom of your wall hanging. Trim your strands to make them even!
Tassels can be very customizable too! You can make them as long or as chubby as you want, and there are many ways to make them. Here is what I did for mine:
1. Wrap your yarn about 30 times around a DVD case.
2. Take your yarn off the case, but be careful to maintain the shape. Wrap your yarn about 1 inch from the top, and tie it off, as shown in the photo below.
3. Cut off about ¾ of an inch off the bottom of the tassel, and trim to make the strands even (as shown in the photo below):
4. Add your tassel to the wall hanging by pulling a strand of yarn through the middle of the tassel as shown in the photo below.
5. Pull the yarn through the post of the SC stitch directly below the Bobble. Tie it off.
6. Pull the knot through so it is behind the post and won’t be seen (as shown in the photo below).
7. Repeat this process 2 more times and add your tassels just below the top leftmost and rightmost Bobbles!
Adding Your Wall Hanging to the Driftwood:
1. Cut 7 6-inch strands of yarn.
2. Insert the strand into the first stitch of the wall hanging using your tapestry needle and pull halfway through.
3. Wrap the yarn around the wood/dowel.
4. Tie the strand around the wood, and pull the knot to the back of the wall hanging to hide it as shown in the photo below.
5. Complete this process, evenly spacing your strands across the top of the wall hanging.
