This lovely Christmas Wreath is quick and simple to make. It is made from simple knitted and crochet flowers and leaves. Only basic knit stitches (stocking stitch and garter stitch) and crochet stitches (UK - ch, dc, htr and tr, US - ch, sc, hdc and dc) are used throughout. It uses 1 colour (Big Wool) for covering the polystyrene half ring and 6 colours for the motifs (4 in Kid Classic and 2 in Felted Tweed). The wreath could be ideal for using up some of your stash as only a small amount of yarn is needed for the motifs. It is decorated with a contrasting ribbon and will be perfect for decorating your home for the festive season.
