Special Pattern Notes:
This pattern is worked in the round continuously. Use a stitch marker to keep track of the first or last stitch. Working in the round reduces ends to weave in and allows for a nice backing. Plastic canvas can be inserted before closing so the wall hanging keeps its shape better when hung.
The wall hanging is worked from the top down. Stitch counts include chains.
Embellishments may include, but are not limited to:
Bells, floral/greenery, pinecones, tassels, shells, stones, air succulents, wooden cutouts, etc

Finish off and weave in ends.
Using the Furls Lucet Fork, and 4 strands of bulky or 1 strand of super bulky yarn, make the following i-cords at roughly the measurement indicated:
- Red: 19”
- Orange: 18.5”
- Yellow: 16.5”
- Green: 14.25”
- Blue: 12.5”
- Purple: 11”
Assembling the Wall Hanging
Stitch the Pot with the edge of the pot even with the left edge of background with the lowest part of Pot on Round 16.
Adding the Rainbow
Starting with red, tuck one ends partially into pot and curve to opposite side. Opposite end should be slightly even with Rounds 16-18. Once all colors are arched, use glue gun and glue sticks to glue down one color at a time keeping the arched shape. After bottoms of i-cord are glued down, add glue to sides of colors to keep the background from showing through if needed.
Weaving the Wall Hanging
Weaving will only be worked in the chain 1 spaces. Take roving and tape the ends. Start weaving the roving from Round 17 across (working over ends of rainbow colors), and then back on Round 18. Make as fluffy as desired or repeat once more. Weave in ends.
Cut 24” strips of Color B. With thinner yarn, more strands per fringe will be needed, thicker yarn will need less. Add 3 strands of fringe to back ch 1 spaces and single crochets. Find a fringe tutorial here.
Cut plastic canvas just under the measurements of your top portion of wall hanging (Rounds 1-17). Insert canvas and sew up bottom using Color A and working under cloud so sewn area is not visible from front.
Weave in all ends. Single crochet wooden dowel on top of wall hanging (or attach a strand to each corner for hanging).
Add any embellishments.
And that, my friend, is how you make the pot of gold wall hanging!
