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.
Sc = single crochet
Tie a slip knot by placing the tail end over the working yarn, then reaching through to grab the working yarn and pulling it up through the loop; leave a 5-inch tail. (Note: Working yarn is the yarn connected to the source.)
Tighten slip knot and place securely onto crochet hook.
Work Scs around the wooden ring: Insert your hook through the ring and place the yarn over the hook, then push the hook over the ring, yarn over again, and draw through the loop on your hook. Shimmy stitches close together to cover the ring entirely.
Cut a 5-inch tail from working yarn and pull through the final loop.
Tie loose ends together in a bow and trim excess yarn.
