Tiny Christmas Wreath Pattern

It was recently brought to my attention that I have a picture of the little Christmas Wreath made from a milk jug ring, but I don't have the pattern posted with it!

Since this person wanted to make them for 19 students, she had to get working on them soon. So I thought I'd post the "pattern," such as it is, to make it available for anyone needing to get a head start on making several.

Please don't panic--you did NOT sleep through summer. It is STILL only June, this is just for those that like to plan ahead.

Materials: Size G hook, milk jug ring, green yarn, red ribbon/yarn

Round 1:
Start with a milk jug ring; sc all the way around it sliding them together fairly snugly as you go so it is completely covered. Sl st to join.

Round 2:
Ch 3; 3 dc in each st around. If the wreath is becoming too gathered, then after about 2 or 3 stitches, do 2 dc in next sc (and back to 3 dc in next 2 or 3) until it is the fullness that you like. Join with sl st to top of ch 3. Ch 15 and sl st to top of ch 3; finish off.

Tie a red ribbon or strand of yarn just under the hanging loop for the extra touch of color!

If this doesn't make sense or if you have a question, just ask! If you make any, send me a picture--I love to see how others make similar projects. =)


  1. How cute! I'm bookmarking this page so I can make a later date!

  2. That's a new technique for me. I wonder if they could be made bigger as well?
