Woodland Wreath, Fir Cones
This is the seventh in a series of twelve linked patterns for a knitted wreath, to be published daily in December 2013.
These fir cones add some texture to the wreath; they are a knitted strip, shaped with short rows and then rolled up and sewn to make the cone shape. A picot cast off in a lighter shade gives them that distinctive edge. You can use various shades of brown for your fir cones or, for a frosted effect, you could work the cast off row with cream yarn.
There are two sizes of cones in this pattern, the big ones are about
4 cm long and the small ones 3 cm. 40g of yarn will make about a dozen fir cones.
All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease.
