MATERIALS Patriotic Wreath
- Worsted Weighted YARN: Red, White, & Blue
- Size 8 US Straight Knitting Needles
- Styrofoam Wreath Ring (12 or 13 inch diameter)
- Foam Star Stickers
- Tapestry Needle
Begin by Casting On twenty stitches by using the Long-Tail Method.
We will knit fourteen stripes in red and white. Each Stripe is eight rows in Stockinette Stitch. Once you have completed your Stripes, it is time to knit your field of Blue.
Bind off and sew the blue and red ends together with your yarn tail using a tapestry needle.
Then simply stretch your knitted piece over your foam form. And sew your piece in back of the foam form as needed to hold it tightly together.
Then it is time to decorate with the Star Stickers.
