The 'Original' Creative Crafting Magazine written by Crafters, for Crafters

Creative Crafting magazine began in August/September 2009, when a group of crafting friends on the Creative Connections network decided that it would be a good idea to raise awareness of the crafting community. From this point they started work and the first issue of Creative Crafting was published in October 2009 and are still publishing today.

Hand Knitted Christmas Wreath Tree Decoration


What you will need
One pair of 3.25mm double pointed needles
Dark green yarn in DK
Small amount of red yarn for bow.

Instructions
Step 1. Start by casting on 3 sts.
Step 2. Knit one row (Do not turn the work).








Step 3. Slide stitches to other side of needle.










Step 4. Carry on in this way until the cord measures around 16 in.

Step 5. Cut yarn and thread through tapestry needle. Thread through stitches on needle, pull to close, tighten and fasten off.











Step 6. Fold the cord in half and twist. Bring the two ends together to form a circle and sew together, leaving a tail of thread.













Step 7. Make a bow using the red yarn.
Step 8. Sew or glue bow into place, then make a loop using the green yarn.







And now you have made your Xmas Wreath.
I use 3.25mm needles to make these, but of course, you can choose to use different size needles.
