I’m told that Christmas is coming, so I decided to dust off my Christmas coloured yarns for this month’s granny square inspiration!
I was going through a box of craft things when I discovered a foam ring that I had found and not used yet, so I decided to create a wreath. And so I did! I’m sure that you could get craftier as well by adding some other Christmas embelishments – and I might still do that, who knows!
This one was made with a 4ply cotton and a 2.5mm hook. I wanted to keep the squares as dense as possible. I then joined with a sparkly yarn. The foam wreath underneath is approximately 23cm diameter total and the foam part is around 5cm thick. I considered getting my hot glue gun out, but didn’t need to as joining the squares and sewing them onto the wreath worked perfectly.
I’m quite pleased with the overall look! Though I do wish I had left out the gold coloured yarn and just kept it as red, green and white for the squares. Next time I would also use a sparklier yarn from the range for joining, but this was a stash buster, so I had to use what I had.
I’ll be showing my Clubhouse members exactly how I made this wreath in our week 2 Hook and Learn lesson in the Clubhouse. Every week in the Hooked on Crochet Club I have a live tutorial that covers a pre-planned project or a tutorial for a stitch or technique that members need on a current project – either their own or a clubhouse one.
