how to make a knitted wreath

December 9th, 2010
Categories: Ideas

There are many more ‘proper’ wreath knitting patterns on the net which have definitely inspired my own attempt, like this one and this one, but I am currently looking for excuses to practice my stockinette stitch so here is my own variation.

To make the wreath you need a small ring of wire or pipe cleaner (I made mine about the size of a small bracelet) and a long piece of green stockinette knitting (knit a row, then purl a row). My knitted piece is fifty stitches long and six rows wide).

Then wrap the knitting round and round the wire ring, like this…

and sew the ends of the knitted strip together.

Add a loop to hang the wreath by and then you can add anything you like.

A small needle felted robin…

Some candles…

Or a sleeping baby and a star…
