This is a fun project for a gray, cold day. It’s also a great beginner project so everyone can join in the fun! I have tweaked the original pattern so that you knit the leaves in one long chain; it’s faster and also eliminates much sewing-in of tails! All you need to get started is small amount of stash yarn, wire clothes hangers and a little wire. Finish the wreath off with some fresh cut greens, berries, or an air plant.
General knitting skills.
Small amount of any yarn; the thicker the yarn, the bigger the leaves, the fewer you will need to complete a circle.
Sample: A Verb for Keeping Warm “Big Sky” (100% Montana Targhee wool, 100g / 160 yards), approximately 3 yards per leaf; 36 yds total for wreath.
Size required for yarn, straight or round; sample used US 10.
