If you have 5 minutes to spare, some green yarn and a crochet hook, you can make this – really – even if you only have the most basic crochet skills. Last year I used these to adorn my home made Christmas cards, this year it has been transformed into a rustic style garland which will soon be hanging in my kitchen window.
With any weight yarn and a suitable crochet hook to make a firm piece of fabric (I used Rowan Pure Wool Double Knitting and a 3.5 mm crochet hook for these photos, but it works equally well with an aran weight or chunky yarn you could even try holding your yarn double and see if you prefer the result).
Chain 9, making sure you leave a long tail when you make your slip knot.
Now make a second in exactly the same way. Sew the two leaves together and stitch 3 small beads in place as berries. Now sit back admire your festive endeavours! I can’t wait to see what you all do with them …
