Step 1: Supplies
I used the bon-bon package on the right...all 8 of those mini skeins to make my wreath.
I also used a bright green ball of yarn...just for chain stitching.
For the hook, I used a J.
I'm not the expert at explaining all the fancy crochet terms...
so I'll try my best!
Here's how to make the rosettes!
Step 2: Rosettes--Part 1
However, it is assumed that you know the basics of crocheting.
I am as basic as it gets.
There are only 3 stitches involved here...
chain, double crochet and half double crochet.
to begin you need:
yarn and crochet hook (mine is a J)
Begin with a slip knot.
Make sure it doesn't undo with the short piece of yarn.
Chain stitch 4 chains...
Loop back through the first chain stitch to make a center loop.
This makes a donut shape. You will do in and out of this loop now.
Then looping through the center of your donut, you will double crochet 18 or 21 times.
(18 will make a 6 petal flower, 21 makes a 7 petal...I like the odd number petals..weird right?)
All the way around .
Now look closely at your little yo-yo.
It's got a nice looped edge all around it...
