Crochet Christmas Wreath Tutorial Part I

This is my first time trying to write a tutorial, so please excuse my probable mistakes in advance. I hope you find my instructions clear enough :)

I started with the base, which I used exactly the same stitch numbers as Lucy's Springtime Wreath.

Then I started working on the "pretend-branches". Chain 20. Sl st into the 18th chain. *Ch 19, sl st into the 18th ch* repeat as long as you get the desired length depending on your yarn and hook choice.

When you finish crocheting the branches, start sewing the long line made of a few zillion chains on the base starting from the inner circle.

Go on sewing until your "pretend-branches" chains tour around the base 3 times.

If you're new to crocheting you might take a look at this website for basic crochet stitches.

And please feel free to upload your crochet or knit Christmas ornaments to the Crochet or Knit Christmas Ornaments Flicker Group .

Christmas Wreath

Since the day I noticed the Springtime Wreath at Attic24, I've been planning to make something like that for Christmas. And here's my version of a crochet Christmas Wreath...

I started making it yesterday morning, and in the afternoon it was finished. I used exactly the same numbers of stitches in Lucy's tutorial. The only difference I made was not to change colors in every other row. For the rest of it I'm planning to add a tutorial tomorrow if the light is good enough to take pictures. And hopefully I'll change the picture in this post as well because I couldn't capture the exact colours of the pretend branches and holly leaves due to poor sunlight.
