A small knitted Holiday Wreath (5.5” in diameter). There are no wires or inserts in the ring, the structure is held together by the power of yarn engineering. The Mini Wreath is great in Christmas colors, but you could also knit one in black and orange for Halloween.
For an ADVENTUROUS BEGINNER knitter because the short row shaping is fully explained in the pattern and most of the wreath is knitted flat on straight needle and the part knitted in the round could be knitted flat and sewn together instead. Otherwise there are only three short sewn seams.
