Over the past few years, collecting fiber related enamel pins has become almost as popular as buying yarn. Whether you're purchasing one from your favorite small business, yarn shop, or yarn festival, these pins can elevate the vibe of a project bag, be a conversation starter, or mark a fond memory.
If your pin collection continues to grow like ours, consider downloading and making our free Pin Pendant pattern to display them in a fun and unique way.
With worsted weight, work the 10" x 7" wall hanging from the bottom up. Strategically placed increases and decreases create the the chevron shape that resembles a macrame or woven wall hanging. Once you have finished, instead of binding off stitches, knit the stitches directly onto a dowel or thin stick. Secure the end and hang!
