This is my design for a little Springtime Crocheted Wreath. The pattern/tutorial that I'm writing out here is for the circular green part of the wreath, and the general putting together of the whole thing :: you can use whatever flowers you like to adorn it with (the flowers I've used here are my Little Picot Flowers, pattern found here). I've hooked my wreath on a 4mm hook, using Rowan handknit DK cotton. The wreath measures approx 15 cm/6 inches across. I'm using UK crochet terms, as follows :: sl st (slip stitch) :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. Tr :: yarn over, insert hook through stitch, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (two loops left on hook), yarn over and pull through remaining two loops. To begin :: chain 43. Work 1 tr in third chain from hook, then 1 tr into each of the next 3 chains. Work 1 tr into each of the next 3 chains.
