Wreaths are everywhere this time of year and your tree should be no exception! But, instead of leafy branches, how about some colorful curls?
These curly wreath ornaments are easy to do and can be customized by changing the colors. I actually love playing with them because they have such an interesting texture.
A beginner to crocheting should have no problem making these, just take your time.
The curl you get is naturally occuring by increasing in every stitch. This and the soon to be candy cane pattern are forms of hyperbolic crochet. Crocheting is, as far as we know, the only way to achieve these shapes out side of nature. Which I think is amazingly cool.
So, let’s get to the pattern!
- White yarn Red Heart Super Savers in White
- Red yarn Red Heart With Love in Berry Red
- Green yarn Red Heart With Love in Lettuce
- You can use any 3 colors you wish this is just what I used.
- Crochet hook
- Yarn or tapestry needle
- Ch = chain
- Sc = single crochet
Curly Wreath Pattern
Because there are 2 color changes in this pattern, I suggest looking at 6 Tips To Improve Your Crochet Projects, number 2 is seamless color change.
Foundation row. With the white, ch 32.
Row 1. Ch 1, make 3 sc into each st. <96>
Row 2. Ch 1, put 1 sc into each st. <96>
Row 3. Change to the red color leaving at least a 6 inch tail of white, before you finish your last sc, take out your hook and turn your work. Insert your hook through the 2 loops, bring your red yarn through the loops so that your tail is facing your work.
ch 1, put 2 sc in each st. Work over your tail as you go.<192>
Row 4. Switch to green leaving at least a 6 inch tail of red, before you finish your last sc, take out your hook and turn your work. Insert your hook through the 2 loops, bring your green yarn through the loops so that your tail is facing your work.
ch 1, put 1 sc in each stitch. Work over your tail at you go.<192>
Tie off the yarn leaving at least a 6 inch tail.
Thread one of the tails through your yarn needle. Twist the ends in their natural curl so they look like a spiral, line the ends up so that the colors match and use the needle to sew them together one color at a time. Tie the two white tails together and knot them. Weave the ends in to the matching color to secure them.
You can use whatever colors you like instead of just what I used. Make them using colors that match your Christmas decor or your personal style. Here’s a Beetlejuice inspired one and a more traditional Christmas color one as an example.
