Granny's Patriotic Wreath
"This is my new wreath, and I am in love! MATERIAL NOTES: Yarn Alternatives: Caron’s One Pound, Bernat’s Super Value. I did not weigh this project to determine how much yarn was used, but it wasn’t much. On my Basic 12″ Wreath Form Cover, I used 185 yards of worsted weight yarn, just as reference. The wreath form WILL be visible through the holes in the granny squares, so keep that in mind when purchasing your wreath form – I wouldn’t recommend the green one for a patriotic theme. TIME SPENT: I worked my wreath up in about three days, for a total of about just under 7 hours. MEASUREMENTS: 12″ Wreath GAUGE: First square is 3″.
