Bees ‘n’ Bugs ‘n’ Butterflies Wreath

We are deeply into the January cold in my part of the world, with lots of frost and mist and a definite need to snuggle under piles of blankets.

However, believe it or not, spring really is just around the corner. Snowdrop and crocus shoots are already beginning to show above ground, and the days are getting longer.

So even though we’re still clearly in winter, I thought I’d share with you all a gorgeous spring-y wreath that I designed back in November πŸ™‚

I think it’s the perfect antidote to the current grey weather! Blue skies and sunshine just beaming out at you.

And, like many wreaths, it’s a pretty quick project to make, and you can use up odds and ends from your stash πŸ™‚


Here’s what you need to make this wreath:

  • 23cm polystyrene ring (I used a full circle, but you can use a half-circle just as well).
  • Several pipe cleaners, or craft or gardening wire – about 25 cm. I used garden soft tie wire.
  • Small quantities of DK yarn in black, red, yellow, green, white, orange, and dark brown.  I used Stylecraft Special DK in black, lipstick, citron, saffron, kelly green, white, spice and dark brown.
  • A larger quantity of DK yarn in light blue. I used Stylecraft Special DK in cloud blue.
  • 3mm crochet hook.
  • 4mm crochet hook.
  • Tapestry needle for sewing in ends.
  • Sewing thread (the colour doesn’t matter; I used white) and needle.
  • Small quantity of polyfill stuffing.

It uses basic crochet stitches and is written using US terms.

The pattern is available for free on Ravelry.

Enjoy!


As ever, my patterns are free, but if you would like, please feel free to make a donation to an ME charity (such as ME Research UK) instead.
