Crochet Wreath Base

 So - today's post is an old one re visited.  You can fin the 2016 post here. I've only made a few edits, but I thought it was time to share it again. 

Crocheted wreaths are very popular - for all times of the year. Here is how to make a plain wrath base, which you can decorate any way you like!

I picked up a Decofoam Wreath and some 8ply  acrylic yarn - the Kringle value ball, from Spotlight.

Then, using a 3.5mm hook 

Make a chain of 40, and then (in US terms)
Row 1 : skip the first three chains, 37 dc, turn. 
Row 2 - 100 : ch 3, 37 dc across, turn. 

Check your size against the foam wreath and bind off.

It should fit very snug.

Using a whip stitch, or whatever you find easiest, without twisting,sew the two short ends together. Then sew the sides together around the wreath.

Now you have a lovely base to add decorations to!

Hope you enjoy! 

Happy Crocheting, Emma.
