I just love to combine crafts. It gives your project a unique look. This embroidery crochet rose wall hanging combines a crocheted base with simple embroidery stitches to create a stunning wallhanging. I am creating a collection of them for my daughter’s room. Let me know if you want more projects like this!
Below you will find a step by step tutorial on how to create this unique crochet home decor. The pattern for the base is provided. There is also a video tutorial to show you exactly how to embroider onto the crocheted background.
Embroidering + Crochet
I love to mix crafts. It gives your project a very unique look. We have already dabbled in crochet in the Crochet Painting Project and I experimented with crocheting on garments like the Heirloom Doll Dress.
But this little project is the perfect blend of embroidery and crochet. To top it, this project will use up scrap yarn that you already have. You will only need to get one item (assuming you don’t already have an embroidery hoop) and it only takes about one to two hours. It is a great way to just dabble in a new craft.
Crocheting the Perfect Embroidery Rose Wallhanging
You can see from the photo above that I have tweaked my design a bit. The most important thing about making the crocheted base is that you have as few holes as possible. We will not be working into the holes between the stitches but instead into the center of stitches.
The first example that you see uses a pretty Half Double Crochet worked into the Third Loop. I loved the look but when embroidering it was hard to find the right spots to put my stitches. Instead, we will be using a simple single crochet circle worked with a small hook.
Great way to Use Yarn Scraps
When embroidering, you can’t use a super long piece of yarn. I would use strands that are between 3 and 10 feet long. This makes it a great project for yarn scraps. Even the crocheted base only uses a few yards of yarn.

Embroidery Crochet Wall hanging Base
– Written in US terms.
– Worked in continuous rounds.
– Use a stitch marker to keep track of your rows.
– This pattern has been written with extra rows in it to accommodate larger hoop sizes. Continue crocheting until your base is 1 inch shorter in diameter than your embroidery hoop.
Row 1: Work 6 SC into a Magic Circle. (6)
Row 2: *Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* for a total of 6 times. (12)
Row 3: *Sc into next St, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (18)
Row 4: *Sc into next 2 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (24)
Row 5: *Sc into next 3 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (30)
Row 6: *Sc into next 4 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (36)
Row 7: *Sc into next 5 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (42)
Row 8: *Sc into next 6 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (48)
Row 9: *Sc into next 7 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (54)
Row 10: *Sc into next 8 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (60)
Row 11: *Sc into next 9 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (66)
Row 12: *Sc into next 10 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (72)
Row 13: *Sc into next 11 STs, Work 2 SC into next ST* repeat from *to* a total of 6 times. (78)
Continue increasing by 6 stitches in each row until the base is the size you need.
Last Row: SLST to next 2 STs. Fasten Off leaving a very long tail. You want enough yarn left to be able to sew the base to the embroidery hoop.
Preparing Your Embroidery Hoop
Once your crochet base is complete you will want to sew it to the embroidery hoop. To make this easier I took four pieces of yarn and tied the base to the embroidery hoop in a few places. This helped keep my crocheted base centered while I was whip stitching the edge to the hoop.
When sewing the base to the hoop, I whipped stitches every other stitch on the last row to the hoop. This gave me a secure base and the stitches kept the outside whip stitch evenly spaced out. Once this is complete you can place the inner embroidery hoop into the out embroidery hoop or leave it off.
It is Time to Embroider
The embroidery part of this tutorial can be found in the video tutorial below or here on Youtube. In this video, you will learn how to prepare your hoop, embroider a woven rose, the stem stitch, and a lazy daisy stitch.
