  • 1 skein Red Heart® Super Saver® yarn in Dark Orchid (C)
  • 1 skein Red Heart® Super Saver® yarn in Razzle (D)
  • 5 mm [US 8] Susan Bates® Knitting Needles
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks or tacky glue
  • Yarn needle
  • 12" (30.5 cm) Styrofoam® wreath form
  • Rustproof straight pins


Gauge:  17 sts = 4" [10 cm];  23 rows = 4" [10 cm] in Stockinette st using B, C and D. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size needles to obtain the gauge.


Notes and Special Abbreviations:

  • Kfb = Knit in front and back loops of the same st.
  • For ease in wrapping wreath, wind a 5" [12.8 cm] ball in B and wind A into a ball.  




  1. With B, tie a knot around the wreath where the Styrofoam® joins to prevent a bump. Wrap the yarn around the wreath making sure there are no gaps creating a solid covering. Every few wraps tighten and twist the yarn with your hand on the wreath. Continue in this manner until the entire wreath is covered.
