This was not the summer that any of us were expecting, but it's been nice to be able to find joy in the small things. One of the things that has brought us joy is the wreath that I made for our front door, so we decided to write up a short tutorial so that you can make one too!
This isn't a pattern, but a recipe. Feel free to make any substitutions that make you happy and be sure to tag us on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook @erieliknits!
Faux flowers and greenery
Size 4 (worsted or aran weight) yarn in your desired amount of colors
We used one main color (cream) and six contrast colors: red, blue, green, purple, orange, and yellow
Size D crochet hook
Hot glue gun
Begin by making 30 three-row granny squares and weaving in the ends. We opted to make the last row of every square the same color.
Slip stitch seam all of the granny squares together through the back loops, creating a rectangle that is 15 squares wide and 2 squares tall.
Using some extra yarn and your darning needle, wrap the granny square fabric that you have made around the wreath frame and lace it together.
If, like with our wreath, there is still an uncovered portion of your frame, cover it with duct tape.
Now, take the faux flowers and greenery and hot glue them to your wreath, covering the duct tape.
