Christmas Wreath Knitting Pattern, Minature

Today I designed a quick pattern for a minature wreath. This little wreath will look lovely adorning your Christmas tree, front door or anywhere in your home. I love hanging these tiny ornaments on our door handles just to spread the Christmas cheer throughout our home:)

Materials:
Green and red yarn. I used brushed Mohair for the wreath and DK yarn for the bow.
2 double pointed needles
Wool sewing needle
Scissors
Pipe Cleaner if you would like your wreath to be stronger, I haven’t used one.

Pattern:
I have knitted this entire pattern with I-Cords, which make it super easy.
I knitted two 10 inch I-Cords for the wreath.
For the first I-cord I cast on 4 stitches and for the second I cast on 3 stitches.

The two I-cords for the wreath, sew in ends.

Sew the 2 ends of one side of your I-cords together.

Twist your two I-cords around one another.

Once you have twisted your two I-cords around one another, sew the other ends together.

Now join your ends and make a circle for your wreath.

With your red yarn, cast on two stitches and knit a 7 inch I-cord. Cast off and sew in your ends.

Fold for a bow and secure with a stitch.

Attach your bow to your wreath.

Hanging on our front door…

Finished!
Enjoy…
Happy weekend:)

    Darling as always, these would make nice holiday napkin rings too!

  16. AllyB November 26, 2010 at 9:33 pm #

    Fabulous idea! I’m off to find the red and green Cascade 220 I have stashed around here somewhere. This would be a great Mom gift as she loves holiday decorations. Thank you for posting it.

    These would be wonderful ornaments for the kidlets to craft and gift. Great idea!

    So cute! I just finished turning your pumpkins into a garland. Now I’m going to have to make wreaths next, ha ha! :)

    This is very sweet. I think it would be fun to make name tag napkin holders out of these. They are so dainty and charming. Thanks for sharing this Linda.

    Oh, you are so clever. I really like this. Next step: heavy and unmodest embellishment with BEADS!! But the next thing I want to do is your white sweater. So many things I want to try. Eternity will not be long enough for all the wonderful things to do. How do people every find time to do ugly or hurtful things – when there’s so much fun to be had in the beautiful?

    I love this pattern. I have been looking for something cute and easy to knit. I love knitting i-cord. I am glad to finally have something to do with it, most of the time I don’t know what to do with my little bits of i-cord that I make, but now I have something cute and easy to occupy my free time. I am going to make some into pins, or maybe sew one or more onto a hat or scarf. I could even make a whole Christmas themed blanket. I have patterns for dolls that can become gingerbread men, and since they are knit as two seperate halves and then sewn together, if I only make one half and then sew it onto a blanket that I knit, I could embroider on features and have a holiday blanket.

    Or I could tie them onto knit presents. Or glue them onto tags.

    So many possibilities. Thanks so much. These are so easy that even I can make them, and I am only 10 years old.

    Again, thanks so much.

    I was looking at your other patterns the other day but my computer was so slow that it was taking forever for it to load, but now I think I will go back and try them again.

    These are awesome wreaths. I have two different green yarns and both are fairly thin, so they will probably work. The dark green yarn would be perfect for it, but sadly, I think it might be too thick and become hard to work with. I have a lighter green yarn that is a more appropriate thickness, but the color is not a good one for the project. How many times have I wanted a thicker green yarn? Many, many times, but my yarn stash is very limited and I never stick with a project idea that I haven’t started long enough for it to be worth going to the store and buying special yarn for it. I love making i-cord and never had much to do with it… I need more projects like this. Anybody know of any good i-cord projects?

    I have been looking for something like this for weeks. I am knitting a cardigan for my grandmother and want a special decoration for the tag. I will definitely use this. But first I need to finish the cardigan… I’m getting ahead of myself again.

    How clever and how simple. Thanks for sharing it!

    Fantastic Pattern. Love how you mix the 2 different types of yarn.

    great- last year i made the whole office holly brooches to wear at the regional away day–now i have found one for this year also looking at your other little ones to yarn bomb the office christmas tree

    I did this pattern with a slightly fuzzy white acrylic lace yarn that had tiny sequins woven into it. I knitted a single I cord for the wreath by changing needles and decreasing to 3 stitches. I also added a doubled length of yarn and braided it with the wreath I cord to stabilize the twisting. I added bows in various colors and created a set of mini ornaments for my sons 6 (4 adopted) children. Each ornament also had a tiny Christmas button in the center and was presented to each child in a white voile gift bag with the promise that grandma would add a new knitted ornament each child every Christmas. I love that seeing your pattern inspired a new family tradition and my grandchildren will have a set of mini ornaments to take with them when they leave home! My hope is that years after I am gone, they will remember me and getting this little set of handmade ornaments.
