This Crochet Wreath with Pine Needle Look is a free pattern for you. It is perfect as a Fall, Christmas, or Winter decoration with its pine needle appearance.
Crochet around a Wreath for Christmas Decoration
It’s my favorite time of the year – the holiday season. I love putting up the decorations. Unfortunately, my husband refuses to help and complains about the decorations being in his way. Oh, well. Maybe one of these upcoming years my kids and I will be able to do the decorating together. Together, we’ll hang the crochet wreath at the front door. That will be nice…
With Christmas just around the corner, one usually wants to decorate the house. Well, I sure want to. So I pull all my fall and winter decor from my attic, and get to cleaning and decorating.
If you love crocheting your holiday decorations, too, please find out how to crochet your own wreath a with pine needle appearance below.
As this free crochet pattern is part of the crochet along, you can follow along HERE and read all about it. It is a super fun event where multiple different people around the world get to crochet all at the same time, using the same pattern.
About the Crochet Wreath with a Pine Needle Look
The wreath was designed to not be flat against the foam wreath below, but rather have some texture which is created using the loop stitch for the entire pattern.
As this pattern is created for the Advent Wreath, please go to Ravelry and add the entire pattern to your Ravelry Favorites. This is also the place where you could purchase the entire pattern at once, which includes all 6 patterns of the Advent Wreath.
So, if you prefer an ad-free version of this pattern where the pictures are added separately to the back of the pattern (to save ink in case you just want to reference the pictures but not print them), you can purchase the pdf on Ravelry or Etsy below.
How to Crochet a Wreath with a Pine needle look
You will need (click to see which ones I used):
- Lion Brand Heartland yarn
- 2 skeins of Kings Canyon (136-180)
- Styrofoam Floral Wreath, white, 18 inches
- 5.00mm hook
- tapestry needle
Stitches used, in US terms:
You can learn all Basic Stitches through THESE TUTORIALS
- loop stitch
- ch = chain
- sl st = slip stitch
- hdc = half double crochet
Wreath: 18 x 10 inches (2.5 inches in height without add-ons)
For loop stitch plus hdc: 1 row of loop sts plus 2 rows of hdc x 4 loop sts = 1 square inch
All starting chains are not counted and the first stitch of every round or row goes into the same stitch as the starting chain.
Use the yarn Kings Canyon
Make a chain of 31
Row 1: 1 hdc in each st starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, ch 1, turn (31 sts)
Row 2: 1 loop st in each st, ch 1, turn (31 sts) -> Pictures 2 – 5 shows how to crochet the loop st, or learn it HERE using a video, although for the Pine needle wreath I used hdc, instead of sc and I pulled an additional loop through when crocheting the loop stitch, shown in the video below.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have 160 rows
Prep the Floral Wreath, by making the top edges more rounds by using a knife (Picture 6).
Wrap the rectangular loop stitch piece around it and sew it together in the back, then sew the 2 ends together which are the short ends of the rectangle (Pictures 7-10).
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
