I have pinned a few wreaths with a cool Argyle like pattern to it. very cool looking. I had not actually tried one till now. *disclaimer.. not sure this is the same technique of any of the ones i pinned... i kind of just winged it :) It worked though! and it was totally easy and mindless as I chatted with one of my best friends while making it. 2 things about that last statement... 1. I'm not a good multi-tasker.. i try but it usually doesn't work out well for me. 2. My friend Jessica dubbed me CWL (crazy wreath lady) one time so it was fitting that I was talking to her! (Jess, I'm sure you were also working on your latest wreath, right?) :)
Happy Heart Day!
So here is how I dd the criss crossing pattern ..
|This the dangling portion brought over to the left... ready to make the cross of the X.|
|Bring the yarn diagonally to the right to form the X. Hold tight at the cross point.. the point where you will begin to switch directions for the next X.|
|By making the next X, you will form a small x pattern on the inside of the wreath.|
|After wrapping all around the wreath.. tie a knot onto the starting point on the back of the wreath.|
|looks difficult. kind of hard to explain (hope the pics helped).|
Happy Valentine's Day!!
