This crochet wall pennant is a project I started several year ago. I tabled it because I wasn’t sure exactly how to get the words on it. I had bought a bunch of sticky-back felt letters, but they didn’t look as pretty as I had imagined.
So in a bin it went.
When I was cleaning out my stash, I stumbled upon my old sample. I have a couple heat transfer crochet projects under my belt, (my plaid wall hanging and my snowfall wall hanging), so I knew that iron-on vinyl was the answer!
Because natural fibers are imperative for heat transfer vinyl, I chose Dishie for this project, which is a 100% cotton yarn. My blush-colored sample was made with Comfy, which is mostly cotton with a touch of acrylic and it worked well with the iron as well.
The Dishie line has certainly expanded over the last little while, and it now comes in Solids, Twist, Multi Color, and Cones!
I actually designed a few cut files for you to use to make your crochet pennant. The freebie is the cut file that says “HOOK + YARN” . The other 4 say “CROCHET”, “IT’S NOT KNIT.”, “CROCHET”, and “HOOKER”.
Aren’t they cute? I can’t wait to get them up on my wall! I honestly went into this project thinking I would prefer the bold black lettering, but I definitely prefer the white, it looks a bit more modern.
I can’t wait to see yours! Be sure to tag me on Insta when you make your Whistle and Ivy creations! @whistleandivy

Adding Heat Transfer Vinyl to your crochet pennant
Be sure to mirror the design and cut it with the shiny side down.
I get all my vinyl at Expressions Vinyl. They have the best quality and the best prices by far!
When ironing on, you will have to remember that your piece is not flat like a t-shirt, so you will need to iron for extra time and apply extra pressure so the vinyl conforms to the shape of your stitches. When in doubt, try the tip of the letters and if they don’t stay, try ironing again. DO NOT peel all the plastic up if your design isn’t sticking properly.
You will not get as firm of a hold as you would with fabric, so keep that in mind. It just needs to stick well enough to stay in place. This will not be an item that needs to be constantly laundered, so a firm hold is all you need.
