Year Round Wreath Knit Along

wreathKAL.jpg

I'm excited to announce our next Ewe Ewe KAL! The Year Round Wreath is a fun pattern that mixes simple knitting and crochet. The wreath is knit like a scarf and the three flowers are crocheted in a contrasting color. 

Think of the fun possibilities with this cute project! You could make a Halloween wreath with orange and black stripes with silver flowers. Or what about a patriotic wreath with red and white stripes with blue flowers. It only takes one ball of Wooly Worsted in each color! 

Think it over while I give you the rest of the details.  

Skill boosters: 

Some techniques you'll learn in this knit along are skills like carrying colors for stripes, mattress stitch for making a tidy seam and the steps of how to crochet a flower. 

You should know how to knit, purl and make the basic crochet stitches such as chain and single crochet.  

Posting dates: 

Day 1: October 8 cast on! We'll learn stripes and work on the wreath.  

Day 2: October 13 seaming! Get that wreath assembled.  

Day 3: October 15 flowers! Learn to make the cute accent flowers.  

Day 4: October 20 brag post! Show off your finished wreath!

Pattern: Year Round Wreath by Heather Walpole (25% off for the KAL!)

Knitting home accents

I love my knits and I also love to have them everywhere I go! It's not always cool enough to wear my favorite sweater so I knit fun things to use rather than wear. The Year Round Wreath is one of the newest Ewe Ewe patterns featuring the fun colors of Wooly Worsted superwash merino wool yarn. It's the perfect item to dress up my home with wonderful knits!

The alternating knitted pistachio and vanilla stripes set up a good backdrop for the pop of pink crochet flowers. The Year Round Wreath is worked around a styrofoam craft wreath so it's durable and will last a few seasons. 

I'm thinking I might need to get started on a Christmas version!
