Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of about 16 sc and 16 rows (about 4 inch) to crochet a wreath that measures approximately 12 inch. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needle or hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle or hook.

    Note: you may find it easier to work with the straw wreath if you leave it in the cellophane packaging.
