Crocheted Fall Wreath



I love fall, I love wreaths, I love to crochet... so naturally I crocheted a fall wreath for our front door :)

Crochet Fall Wreath Pattern

Materials:
16 inch Foam Wreath
4 colors of yarn
Size H Crochet Hook
Tapestry Needle

Pattern:
Chain 23,
SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way across, chain 1, turn (22 SC)

You will continue to SC rows making...
5 rows with your first color (yellow)
8 rows with your second color (orange)
10 rows with your third color (brown)
3 rows with your 4th color (blue)

Continue this pattern 6 times so in the end you will have 6 sections of each color. Fasten off and weave in all ends.


Sew onto your wreath. Just be sure to line up each color to itself.



Embellish with my Teeny Tiny Crochet Pumpkins. You can find the pattern HERE.


The leaves are a free pattern from Wind Rose Fiber Studio. You can find the pattern HERE.

Crochet a series of rows to make a bow or loop to hang wreath with. Mine was 6 SC wide and about 3 ft long.



Happy Harvest!

  5. If it's just a solid rectangle, won't it bunch up in some places? I'm going to make this, so I just wanted to be prepared if that's the case lol.

    1. I was afraid of that happening, but it didn't! Just make sure to line up the colors. The yarn stretches and curves nicely with the wreath.

  6. That is really so cute! I love the colors and the big bow!

  7. Love this. I'm also thinking it would be a nice pattern to change up the colors and decorations for other holidays. I'm thinking a Valentine's day one with red, pink, and white colors and some hearts.

  9. Love it. May I ask how you tied the bow at the top. It looks beautiful. I love the colors you choose to use.

    1. I don't think it's tied at all. just different lengths of crocheted strips folded in half. A short strip was folded in half vertically and secured at the top of the bow. A second longer strip folded in half and slid horizontally into the loop, then a strip slid in behind the horizontal loop.

      Hope I made sense to you.

    2. At least that's the way I would do it to make it neat. My bows are awful

      Delete
    3. Yes! That is mostly correct! The bow is just one long strip folded into two loops and then a shorter strip around the middle of the bow to secure it around the wreath.

    1. Yes, I used Vanna's Choice yarn for the orange (Rust or it might of been Terracotta...sorry I am not sure but both would look nice), yellow (Mustard) and brown (Chocolate) and the Turquoise is Loops & Threads™ Impeccable™ Yarn in Aqua. Hope this helps!

  29. I added this one to my fall crochet roundup, too! http://mymerrymessylife.com/2012/10/fall-and-halloween-crochet-roundup.html

  30. I just finished this wreath. Thanks for the pattern!

    PS - was the foam wreath supposed to be a 12" (not 16") foam wreath instead? I bought a 12" wreath by accident and found that my striped wreath cover fit perfectly, and I was glad that I didn't buy the 16" wreath.

  31. Completely gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing! I linked to you on my blog this morning! http://www.mooglyblog.com/10-free-thanksgiving-crochet-patterns/

  33. I have no idea how to crochet but I just knitted the main striped 'scarf' and am working on the bow, but I need help with the pumpkins- I don't know how to knit little pieces like that. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is beautiful! It's a bit late for Fall for me, so I might try it with Christmasy colors. What would you suggest to add as embellishments?

    ReplyDelete
  35. You are SO creative! I love it...! <3 Fall is my favorite season. (I'm originally from Connecticut - that may be why) I love the warm colors, and the fall traditions. This is beautiful... maybe I'm going to try this for next year! Thank you so much for sharing!

  36. My girls and I are going to make this wreath for Fall...how did you attach the leaves and the pumpkins?

    ReplyDelete
  37. How did you attach the strip to the wreath hanger on the door? I didn't want to do the bow but can't think of a good way to hang it on the wreath hanger. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Is there a knitted version of this cute wreath?

    ReplyDelete
  39. What's the color of the yarn used for the bow/leaves?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Absolutely love this. Working on it now... any tips for how to tie the bow? I can't seem to get it right for the life of me!! Thanks!

  44. When you get to the end of the row do you have to go into the chain? my edges are becoming uneven at every other row.
