Woolly Wreath & Garland Pattern
Years ago, Churchmouse Yarns knitted mammoth woolly wreaths for their shop holiday display and they were so popular that they created home-sized versions for a cozy accent all winter long. The little garland is charming wrapped around your tree, over the mantle, down the banister—anywhere you want a little woolly magic.
Gauge is not critical to these pieces. You are after a loopy fabric that looks dense and lush when stretched to fit a wreath form. If you choose to use a smooth bulky-weight wool, you might make sure you have enough yarn on hand to make your strip longer—minimizing the stretch around the wreath form will help fill in any gaps.
Small wreath: Approx. 14" finished diameter on 12" wreath form.
Large wreath: Approx. 20" finished diameter on 18" wreath form.
Garland: Approx. 4 yards of length, per 110 yd skein.
Small wreath (shown in first image): 2 skeins Fleece Artist Slubby Blue(110 yds/100m each), or approx. 220 yds/201m of bulky-weight wool yarn.
Large wreath (shown in third image): 4 skeins Rowan Cocoon (126 yds/115m each), or approx. 440 yds/402m of bulky-weight wool yarn.
Garland (shown in first and second image): 1 skein Fleece Artist Slubby Blue (110 yds/100m), or approx. 110 yds/100m of bulky-weight wool yarn.

The wreaths will need a 12" or 18" wire wreath form and 3 or 4 yards of muslin fabric to match yarn color.
