What better new wreath, than a knitted one? Right?
To make this wreath I stripped down my old wreath for the metal frame. Then I just knitted (a K2, P2 seed stitch) a long rectangle (really a short scarf) to pull over the frame after I fastened the started and finished ends (the short ends) together.
Wanna make one? Here’s what I used. (Please don’t go out and buy yarn or needles to make one. Use up the bulky/chunky yarn you have and the biggest needles you’ve got.)
1 metal wire wreath frame (Note: You may want to spray paint it a color that will match your yarn.)
Scrap bulky/chunky yarn (I had Oatmeal color Lions Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick on hand.)
Size 17 needles
Holding two strands of bulky yarn together, cast on 7. (Or more or less depending on the size of your frame. My frame measured 1 1/4″ wide. My knitting measured 3 1/2″ wide.)
Row 1: K2, P2, K2, P1
Row 2: P2, K2, P2, K1
Repeat rows until you have enough length to fit around your wreath VERY snuggly (definitely do some tests as you go). Tightness ensures no need to affix besides slipping it on and creates a nice roundness.
Bind off when you reach desired length. Sew the two short ends together and pull over your frame. Celebrate!
