The Simple Shibori Knit Pin Banner was inspired by three needs I had – to dress up my studio space, to add a bit of sound absorption, and to display my enamel pin collection! It was fun to make, and I thought you might have the need for something similar. So I’m sharing the free knit wall hanging pattern with you all here on Moogly!

Featuring Red Heart Irresistible
One of the things that made this a one-afternoon project is that I used Red Heart Irresistible! This Jumbo weight yarn is nearly as thick as they come, requiring my biggest knitting needles.
The Shibori colorway is lovely and appealing and inspired the name of this pattern, but you can choose from any of the 20 different colorways. Or create your own Jumbo yarn by holding several strands of Bulky or Super Bulky together!
Make It Your Own
The pattern for the Simple Shibori Knit Pin Banner is great for beginners – no shaping or complex stitching, just knits and purls. And you can use your favorite cast on and bind off, whatever you like! Sew the finished banner to a dowel, pretty branch, or whatever strikes your fancy – and display your own pin collection!
