This knitted wreath will look lovely on your door to welcome Christmas time visitors! It is made of three separate knitted tubes filled with wadding and then plaited together.
This is another one of my Christmas makes that brings memories! When my daughters were small I made lots of similar wreaths in Christmas fabrics to sell at craft fairs. Those were done by sewing, not knitting. The girls used to fill the tubes with wadding and got some pocket money for helping me. Now after many years I decided to make a knitted wreath using the same idea.
You knit the tubes round on double pointed needles. One of the tubes is plain, the other two have fairisle patterns. But if you prefer, you can use variegated yarn in Christmas colours instead of fairisle if you want to save time. The size of the finished wreath depends on your yarn. I knitted this one in double knitting weight and used 3.5 mm needles. That makes a 35 cm (13.5 in) diameter wreath.
