Spring Wreath ~ Crochet Tutorial

Posted by Sharon Oldfield on

  

Around this time last year I created a pattern for crochet Daffodils and used them to create little wall hangings for my Mum and Godmother for Mother's Day. I also created a pattern for some little Primrose flowers too, as I was holding a Spring Wreath making workshop at Stitch Studio. Here's one of the Spring Wreaths made in the workshop.

I thought it would be nice this Spring to share the workshop as a tutorial on my Blog, so here goes.

Making the Wreath Base

Materials & Equipment:

Instructions:

www.cottonpod.co.uk Separate the inner part of the embroidery hoop from the outside and put to one side; you will be crocheting around the outer hoop.

 Start with a slip knot around your hook.

www.cottonpod.co.uk Double crochet around the hoop as illustrated below. 

www.cottonpod.co.uk You will need to crochet multiples of 4 plus 1. (My wreath has 145 dc stitches).

www.cottonpod.co.uk When you get to the end fasten off.

www.cottonpod.co.uk Rejoin your yarn.

www.cottonpod.co.uk Add the decorative loops.

Making the Flowers

Use the following patterns to make a range of Daffodils, Primroses and Mini Flowers.The quantity you make depends on the look you are going for; I wanted to only cover half of the wreath, so I made 3 Daffodils, 6 Primroses and 5 mini flowers. 

Materials and Equipment

Yarn DROPS Paris in a range of spring colours
(e.g. orange, strong yellow, vanilla, pale yellow, off white)
4 or 4.5 mm hook

 Assembling the Wreath

www.cottonpod.co.uk One you have completed all your flowers, try different ways of arranging them on your wreath until you are happy with the overall look. I often take photos at this stage to compare and keep a record of the final layout I choose.

www.cottonpod.co.uk Once you are happy sew the flowers to your wreath. You can either use the yarn you have been using, or, I find it easier to sew and to hide the stitches if I use an ordinary needle and thread.
