- 9.0 mm N crochet hook
- Scraps of super bulky/6 yarn of your choice…I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick (I used the “Barley” “Pumpkin” “Fisherman” and “Mustard colorways)
- Tapestry needle
- Tape measure
- 12 inch wreath form
- Glue gun
- Optional: Ribbon for a wreath bow
- 14 inches across (12 inch wreath form with added width from leaves)
Instructions for one round leaf:
Note: I made several in each yarn color…make enough to cover your wreath (number of leaves will be dependent on what size wreath form you are using. Wreath shown has 30 leaves)
Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1: In the center of the ring, ch 3 (counts as a dc) then work 5 dc, 4 sc, 1 tr, 4 sc. Join with a slip stitch to close leaf and fasten off. Weave in any ends that remain and you may need to shape the leaf a bit with your hands.
- Pre arrange leaves around the wreath from to get an idea of the design first. I arranged mine so that they all went in the same direction around the circle.
- Once leaves are how you want them to be, glue each leaf into place with the glue gun.
- Add a bow if desired.
- If you need a hanging loop, tie a little scrap of yarn/ribbon/twine to the top of the wreath.
- Allow wreath to completely cool and dry before hanging.
