These wreaths, designed by Teresa Carter of DeBrosse, are crocheted using a unique bulky weight yarn. Its tubular, T-shirt feel makes this material easy to work with in your hands and won't fray or split with the pulling of stitches—making it a good first crochet project. If you're a beginner, use our basic crochet how-to as a guide.
