Every spring and summer I try really hard to work ahead and get a bunch of winter and fall designs finished. AND every spring and summer I can’t make myself do it! I can’t pull myself away from crocheting fun summer projects.
This cute Beach Please summer crochet wall hanging has been on my to-do list since last year. I originally wanted to use an ombre yarn that melted softly between 4 beachy colors, but I could not find yarn with the right colors. I decided to ditch the ombre idea and go with a bit more retro look of chunky stripes. Now I was able to choose my own palette!
These colors are exactly what I was hoping for: warm colors that are reminiscent of a lazy, summer sunset and cool colors that look like tropical ocean waters.
I have used Dishie, a yarn by WeCrochet, in a few projects before, so it popped into my mind when I was brainstorming yarns for this project. Dishie is 100% cotton, which is really great for wall hangings. I like using cotton because I love the matte look it has; it also doesn’t give or stretch, which is perfect for the longevity of decor projects.
The colors I chose were Conch, Creme Brûlée, Mint, and Kenai, with Linen as the neutral tan color.
I really liked working this project, it includes a bit of colorwork that creates the words, but then it has the ease of simple sc for the chunky stripes. The graph part is simple colorwork and only alternates between 2 colors, so this is perfect for advanced beginners.
This pretty crochet wall hanging works great anywhere in your house or even on the front porch or front door.

You can choose to weave in ends, but this piece has a right and wrong side, so you can choose to simply knot some of the ends on the back to keep them out of the way.
From here, I recommend you block your wall hanging before attaching it to a dowel. The colorwork section may pull in a bit at the sides, so blocking it will help the edges remain clean and straight.
I use a Blockz All, handcrafted by Chetnanigans. Spritz with water before blocking to ensure a lasting effect.
From here, you can add two little tassels in the bottom corners (or add fringe across the bottom)
Then, string a long-ish length of Conch yarn on a darning needle. Work a cast-over stitch across the top row and around your dowel, attaching the fabric to the dowel. Cut another length of yarn, tie both ends to either end of the dowels to hang it from.

Is there a similar or a video for this? I’ve taken my words section apart three times now and it’s showing my carry through very prominent.
Hi Melissa! I don’t have a video, but something you can try is to not carry, simply let it run behind. Because this project has a right and wrong side, it’s okay to have those threads running in the back. Just make sure you run them all on the same side. So for one row you would let it run across the back and then the next row you would let it run across the front so those yarns are always on the back of your piece. Does that make sense?
Yes I think so. I’ll try that. Thanks!
Very cute, Beth. I grew up by a lake and we always said we were going to the beach. Sand plus water = beach.
I just made my 1st yarn purchase from WeCrochet. Anxious to receive and get to work on a blanket for my granddaughter.
Thanks for sharing your talents.
Right?! That’s how I feel <3!!
I hope you love the yarn, your granddaughter will love her new blanket I am sure!!
Is the hook size 4mm or 4.5 mm? Both are listed.
Ah thanks for catching that mistake! I used a 4.5mm but the gauge is not important for this project.
