Wicker Wreath (mine was roughly 30cm in diameter)
DK Cotton Yarn (I used Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK in White, Shell Pink, Sky Blue, Greek Blue and Fondant plus some lemon cotton yarn I had in my stash)
3/4 metre of Gingham Ribbon
Odds of ribbon (optional)
So to start, you need a medium sized wicker wreath.
Next up is to make the crochet flowers. For this design, I used five colours and decided to use an ombre effect. For this pattern you will need 21 flowers in total, 4 of each in Shell Pink, Sky Blue, Greek Blue and Fondant and 5 in White along with some spare lemon yarn from my stash.
Here's how they are made....
2) Work 1 chain (does not count as a stitch) and then work 10 double crochet into the ring. If you are using the magic ring technique then you would be crocheting over the additional yarn as per the picture.
Fasten off and sew in ends
And now you have made your first flower!
Repeat pattern until all 21 flowers have been made.
Once the glue has totally dried it is ready to be fixed to the wall and for this we use the gingham ribbon. Loop it around the top of the wreath, as follows...
Then tie a bow in the top to hook onto the wall
And then TA DA, the wreath is finished!
