I’m dreaming of some snow this winter. Just enough so my boys can build a snowman in the backyard 🙂 While I wait for those first few flakes, I decided to make a little bit of a winter wonderland in our house and I’m starting with this crocheted snowball wreath! I have visions of snowball garland hung across the mantel, in the entry way and on the banister. If I can make it happen I will post lots of pictures! Although I can already see my husband giving me crazy looks for trying to yarn bomb our house.
I used a 12 inch round green styrofoam wreath. I found mine at Michaels.
The blue yarn is Red Heart with Love in Iced Aqua
You are going to create a long crocheted strip that you will then wrap around and stitch together onto the wreath.
The pattern is simple:
With size H hook
Chain 21, SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down the chain, chain 1, turn (20 SC)
Rows 2-150: SC in each stitch, chain 1, turn (20 SC)
Leave a long long tail after your last row so you can stitch the edges together onto the wreath.
When you wrap your crocheted strip around the wreath make sure your rows match up. Now take your tapestry needle and start stitch it together. It always looks like it won’t work out, but keep matching up the beginning of the row to the end of the same row and it will all come together with no lumps or bumps at the end.
