Deer Stag Wall Hanging - Bobble Stitch | Free Crochet Pattern and Graph

Today I’m featuring a beautiful Deer Stag Wall Hanging crocheted with the Bobble Stitch, handmade by a very talented crocheter called Aldana, from Argentina.
I really love it and I thought you would love to make one too!

In this blog post you will find the free crochet graph and the instructions to make your own Deer Wall Hanging!

And here’s the story behind!
Lately I was contacted by Lucas Budeisky, the owner of Budetex company, based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They distribute and develop yarns and accessories.

Lucas told me that one of their designers tested their new "Pica Pau" yarns (worsted super soft cotton yarns) with my Deer Stag C2C Graph.
She enlarged the background and worked in rows using the Bobble Stitch with a 5 mm crochet hook.

They liked the Deer Wall Hanging so much that they hanged it in their showroom and many of their customers are asking for the pattern and for the yarns used.
That’s why Lucas asked me for permission to publish the picture of the Deer Stag Wall Hanging on their site and to make a yarn bundle with the colors used for the wall hanging.
And the free graph can be downloaded here, on My Hobby is Crochet blog!

I agreed and now you check out the Deer Bundle Pica Pau Yarn on their international site! They are shipping to the US and Canada as well.

Now let’s see how to crochet this beautiful Deer Stag Wall Hanging!

As I mentioned before, this wall hanging was made using the 5 dc Bobble Stitch! You can use a 4 dc Bobble too!
The Bobble stitch is a bit time comnsuming and a real "yarn eater", but it looks awesome!

Note: You can also use the Bobble Single Crochet (or as someone corrected me it is actually called the Single Crochet Popcorn stitch), as seen in this post and VIDEO TUTORIAL. (It would use less yarn as the 5 dc Bobble stitch!)

Or the most fastes way it would be to crochet it with the Corner to Corner (c2c) technique, as seen here.

THE GRAPH

I have remade the Deer Graph with added additional rows and columns for the background and added the Legend for the Pica Pau yarn colors used.

This Graph is my own creation, my own pixel art, designed pixel by pixel in Stitch Fiddle! Please respect my copyright and do not repost or distribute this graph anywhere else!

You can save the graph image for your own personal use to a file on your PC, by right mouse click, option "Save Image". Once saved to your pc, you can print it out.

Deer Wall Hanging Crochet Graph in rows

How to read the graph:

To work in rows with the Bobble stitch or with the Popcorn st, you will read the graph from bottom to top and from right to left! To work one row from the graph, you will actually crochet 2 rows:
1.st crochet row worked with sc sts, reading the 1st. row in the graph from right to left;
2nd. crochet row worked alternating sc with bobble stitches, reading the same 1.st Row in the graph, but in reverse, from left to right!

Each pixel/square in the graph is one bobble in our crochet piece!

One Bobble will be actually worked in 2 rows with 2 sts in each row; that means each bobble is made of 4 sts:
In the first row: you’ll work 1 sc crochet in each of next 2 sts
In the 2nd.row: work 1 bobble st in next st, then 1 sc in next st

How to change colors:

you will always change color at the last sc of a color section, working the last sc till before last over; having 2 loops on the hook, pick new color yarn and finish the sc with the new color.
Use Bobbins for each color section!!

How many chains to start?

This Deer Graph has 31 squares!
For the starting chain you will double that (2 sts for each pixel in the graph) and you will add 2 chains more: one as the turning chain and 1 for an extra st, an extra sc that we will need at the end of the row.
The first and the last stitch of each row will be a sc, this way it will be easier to add a border, if you like.

For our example 31 x 2 + 2 chains= 62 +2= 64 chains to start!

WRITTEN INSTRUCTION:

I will walk you though the first rows!
Start with Off white color and chain 64.

To work one row from the graph, you will actually crochet 2 rows:
1.st crochet row worked with sc sts, reading the 1st. row in the graph from right to left;
2nd. crochet row worked alternating sc with bobble stitches, reading the same 1.st Row in the graph, but in reverse, from left to right!

Row 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd. Ch from hook and 1 sc in each ch across; ch1, turn. (63 sts)

Row 2: 1 sc in first st, *1 bobble st in next st, 1 sc in next st*, repeat from *to* across. (31 bobbles made)

After finishing crocheting row 2, you have finished the first row in the graph!

The next 2 rows in the graph are without color changes, so you will repeat as rows 1-2, two times more.

Row 4 in the graph is with color changes!
1) You will work first crochet row with sc and color changes this way: with Off White work 1 sc in each of next 26 sts (13 pixels in the graph x 2), changing color to White at last sc, work 10 sc (5 pixels x 2) with White, changing color at the last sc to Off White, work 27 sc with Off White ( 13 pixel x 2 + 1 additional sc at the end of the row); ch 1, turn.

Total: 63 sc = 26 Off White + 10 White + 27 Off White

2) Second row with Bobble st: with Off White work 1 sc in first st, (1 bobble st in next st, 1 sc in next st) x 13 times for 13 pixels, changing to White at last sc, with White work (1 bobble st in next st, 1 sc in next st) x 5 times for 5 pixels, change to Off White at last sc, with White work (1 bobble st in next st, 1 sc in next st) x 13 times for 13 pixels

Total 31 Bobbles= 13 Off White + 5 White + 13 Off White

Continue to alternate these 2 rows, one with sc and one alternating sc with bobble sts, following the color changes for each row in the graph.

Last Row: After finishing the last row in the graph, add one additional row of sc sts on the RS. This way it will balance out; you’ll have one row of sc at the bottom and one at the top of your crochet piece.

Add fringe at the bottom of the wall hanger and you're done!

I hope you enjoy this Deer Wall Hanging crochet pattern!
