This week’s featured Meet and Make designer is Julie Huston. Julie picked up a crochet magazine in the mid 1990′s from a thrift store and taught herself how to crochet from the instructions in the magazine. A new hobby was born and she has not looked back; she has been “hooked” ever since. Julie has many free crochet patterns on our site that we just love so much!

Here is Julie’s Featured Project:
Crocheted Wreath Ornament
- Green worsted weight yarn
- Size F crochet hook
- Pipe cleaner or 5-6 inch ring
If using a pipe cleaner, form to make a ring.
Row 1: sc around the ring until it is completely covered, exact number isn’t that inportant, just as long as the ring is cover
Row 2 and 3: Working in continuous rounds, 3 sc in each sc around. Make sure you marked the beginning of the round.
Row 4, *ch 3, sc in the next stitch* repeat around.Slip stitch in the next stitch. You can finish it off here.
I added a chain loop of about 50 chains, unfortunately I do not remember exactly how many I did. I made the loop long enough to fit around a door knob.
Embellish the wreath as you see fit.
The pattern and more pictures are found on my blog
