- Worsted weight #4 yarn – Any worsted-weight yarn can be used to make your wreath square. The square pictured in this pattern was made using WeCrochet/Knit Picks Brava Worsted yarn in the White, Red, and Peapod colorways. If you are substituting with another yarn, please refer to the gauge as your square may turn out larger or smaller, depending on yarn thickness, tension, and hook size.
- Yardage – you’ll need approx. 15g or 35 yds of yarn for this square, which works out to approximately 20yds white, 10yds green, 5yds red).
- 4 mm crochet hook – Or hook size needed to obtain the gauge written below. I use this crochet hook.
- Yarn needle – for weaving in ends.
- Scissors – for cutting yarn ends. These are my favorite!
- Ch – chain
- Sl St – slip stitch
- SC – single crochet
- 4 inches square = 18 rows of 16 stitches.
- Measures 5.25” (13.25cm) square when finished.
- Turned Rows– Each panel is worked in turned rows of SC stitches. At the end of each row, chain 1 and turn. Chain 1 stitches do not count towards stitch count.
- Color Changes – You will be changing colors often in this pattern. To change colors, complete the last SC in the first color up until the last yarn over. Yarn over with the new color and pull through last step of the SC stitch. So, your SC will go like this: insert hook into last stitch of the first color, pull up a loop, yarn over with new color, pull through all loops on hook. Now you will be working in the new color until you change colors again.
- Tapestry Crochet Tips – For this project, you will be using the tapestry crochet technique and sometimes carrying unused colors along with you under your stitches. See the graph notes for more specific details on which color is being carried. This is so both sides of your project looks neat and tidy when you are finished. If you are using your square for a project that does not need to be tidy on both sides, you can also use the intarsia crochet technique where you pick up and drop the yarn colors as needed and carry them across the back side of the square. This will keep the color changes a little neater looking on the front side because you won’t have to worry about carrying the yarn at all for the project.
Below, you’ll see the graph that I created for the wreath square. Each box in the graph counts as one SC stitch. This means you’ll be working 23 rows of 21 stitches, following the color changes in the graph.
To read this graph, you will be starting at the bottom right and working your way across in back-and-forth rows. However, this graph is symmetrical, so if you start on the left, it’ll work the same.
Remember to keep consistent tension, even when working with the different colors. This is so your square panel comes out nice and even on the sides.
Make two small bobbins of the red and green for working the left and right side of the wreath. This is so you don’t have to carry the colors under the white and will keep your project looking neater.
To make this square as shown following the graph, here are a few tips:
- The white yarn was carried along throughout the whole project.
- Red and green yarn was not carried (except for below exceptions). Just drop the colored yarn and pick up again when working that same color on the other side.
- For rows 18 and 19, the green yarn was carried under the red stitches across the center of the bow, but dropped when finished with it for the row.
- For row 21, the red yarn was carried under the white in the center only for a few stitches to finish the top of the bow.
- Two bobbins of green were used for rows 8-17 (one for the green on the left and one for the green on the right).
- Two bobbins of red were used for rows 13-15 and then just one was used from rows 16 to the top.
The written instructions below will indicate how many stitches to make in each color as you work your way through the graph. Every stitch is a single crochet (SC) stitch. Chain 1 and turn at the end of each row.
Start this project with a chain of 22 and then work the SC stitches of row 1 starting in the 2nd chain from your hook. Each row will have 21 SC stitches.
