Mini Christmas Wreath Free Pattern




These mini wreathes are only slightly bigger than an inch in diameter. They are easy and quick to make. It took me only ten minutes to make one.

They will be great for Christmas card making, decorating wrapped presents, or as Christmas tree ornaments (just add a string for hanging). You can also use a pin and wear one as a Christmas brooch.  

Size ten green and red cotton thread. Size ten hook.

Using green thread, ch 15, join with a sl st in first ch to form a ring.

Round 1: ch 1, 25 sc in ring, join with sl st in first sc.

Round 2: ch 1, sc in next sc worked in back loop around, join with sl st in first sc.

Round 3 same as Round 2. Fasten off.

Using red thread, ch 45. Fasten off. Tie the chain into a bow. Using a needle and red thread, attach the bow to the wreath.

If you don’t know how to crochet into back loop, learn about it here.

  9. This is so cute! I have never crocheted Christmas ornaments. It is interesting when I started crocheting, I was working with worsted or DK yarn, but nowadays I prefer mercerized yarn and the last time I was in my yarn store I discovered some beautiful sparkling crochet thread... :)
