Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 5 sts (1 inch) in single crochet to crochet this wreath. Remember to check your gauge. 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 and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Special stitches and abbreviations: mm = millimeters Notes: For easier wrapping, make 3 inch balls of yarn of each color for the Styrofoam eggs and a 4 inch ball of yarn for the wreath. If using a straw (hay) wreath, leave the plastic wrap on the wreath for easier wrapping.
