Sharing is caring, lets spread the word

This Crochet A Long is completely free on my blog only.  You will be able to follow along with all 9 instalments.  Or alternatively you can buy the pretty, printable, premium PDF to add to your pattern collection while supporting a small business owner.  You will also get automatic email updates of when the next part of the CAL is released.  If you are following the blog, you will need to keep checking the page on the dates for its release rather than being notified.

Why should I buy the PDF version?

This is a question that I get asked A LOT.  So, I will try my best to let you know why I think the PDF trumps the web version.

  • Printable. Easy to manage and print out so you can take with you anywhere.

  • No ads anywhere.

  • It is pretty. I do spend a little time trying to get it to look just right so that not only do you have the functional pattern but it’s nice to look at also.

  • You get both US and UK terminology.

  • It supports me and enables me to continue to create content for you to enjoy.

  • For this CAL you will get automatic updates for each live part.

  • At the end of the CAL you will get a combined PDF

Click the button below to buy your own copy now. It’s just $3.75 USD or £3 GBP!

I really don’t want to buy the PDF version.

That’s ok, I totally understand and best of all, you don’t have to.  You can still make the whole wreath from the free version of the pattern on my website!

I don’t want to buy anything BUT I want to support you, is that possible?

Yes! Very much so and I am very much grateful for this.  You can share the website with your crochet friends.  Share your makes on Facebook Groups and on Instagram and mention me.  Word of mouth is the very best way to help support me and get the Flo’s Crafty Crochet name out there. I also have a Buy Me A Coffee button at the bottom of the page which is literally just that, the equivalent of buying me a drink lol

crochet wreath scarf

Materials

30cm polystyrene wreath

For the wreath wrapping I used James C Brett Marble DK – MT27

3mm hook

3.5mm hook

4mm hook

Paintbox Cotton DK in various shades (or any yarn)

Stitch Markers

Stuffing

Scissors 

Tapestry needle

Notes

For the wreath scarf all stitch counts are suggestions you may want to check the length and width against your own wreath.

A stitch marker is recommended for keeping track of your stitches for each round.  Especially for helping keeping your edges straight.

Instructions inside ( ) are to be repeated.

Instructions inside { } are worked into the one stitch.

There are two types of wreath wrapping. Part 1 is pictured below.

 

Style 1

Wreath Scarf

With colour of choice and 4mm hook

You can choose to just wrap a ball of yarn around the wreath like the one in the photo or do a more traditional covering as below.  

Chain does not count as a stitch

With chosen colour  and 4mm hook CH 31 (Or whatever length chain is required to go around your wreath)

Row 1:  HDC in 2nd CH from hook and each CH across, turn. (30)

Row 2:  CH1, HDC in each ST across, turn (30)

Repeat row 2  until the scarf is long enough to wrap around the polystyrene wreath.

Approximately 106 rows total (How many depends on individual tension and the size of wreath you are using so towards the end it is advisable to check against the wreath.)

Wrap your scarf around your polystyrene wreath and join by sewing with a tapestry needle.

Wreath Hanger 

Chain does not count as a stitch

Ch 46

Row 1:  HDC in 2nd CH from hook and each CH, CH1, turn. (44 HDC)

Row 2:  HDC in next 3 ST, CH1, SK1 ST, HDC in each ST until the last 5 ST, HDC, CH1, SK1, HDC in last 3 ST, CH1, turn (42 HDC)

Row 3:  HDC in each ST and CH SP.

At the final row, do not finish off

Place around the wreath and SL ST once more across the row edge to seal across the wreath to allow it to hang.

 

 Style 2

Simply take your ball of yarn and wind it through and around the polystyrene wreath tightly until it is  covered.  To make the hanger, chain 45 and SL ST back into each CH and fasten around one part of the wreath so that it can hang easily.
