Free crochet pattern for a mini Christmas wreath
Size does matter ?
Crochet is made in rounds . The thickness of yarn and crochet hook determine the size of the wreath. I used a hook in 4 mm and yarn for hook 3.5-4.5 mm and got a wreath with 9 cm diameter.
Christmas wreath: start with a MR in green
R1: 24 sc (UK dc) in the ring, close the ring with a sc (dc) in the first stitch (24), do not pull the ring together completely, only so far that the start and last stitches come together
R2: 24 sc (UK dc) (24)
R3: [sc, inc] (UK [dc, inc]) repeat to the end of rnd (36)
R4: [sc, sc, inc] (UK [dc, inc]) repeat to the end of rnd (48)
R5-8: 48 sc (UK dc) (48)
R9: [sc, sc, dec] (UK [dc, dc, dec]) repeat to the end of rnd (36)
R10: [sc, dec] (UK [dc, dec]) repeat to the end of rnd (24)
R11-12: 24 sc (UK dc) (24)
yarn off, do not cut the thread too short, it is used to sew the ring together. When closing the seam, gradually stuff some filling material into the ring.
For the red ribbon make a chain of 80-90 chain stiches
For the bow: in einen Fadenring 3 ch, 4 tr (dtr), 3 ch, 1sl, 3 ch, 4 tr (dtr), 3 ch, 1sl; bow ribbon: 6 ch, sl in second ch from hook, 5 sl in the next 5 ch, 1 sl in the ring, 6 ch, sl in second ch from hook, 5 sl in the next 5 ch, finish the work with a sl in the ring. Use the rest of the thread to pull/sew the bow in the middle to get it in shape.
Congratulations! Your little Christmas wreath is done!
You can decorate the wreath even further with beads or other knick-knacks to suit your taste.
Have fun decorating your home or giving it away!
