CROCHET INFO:
Beg every dc round with 1 ch. Finish every round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.

COLOUR CHANGE:
To get a nice transition between the colour changes, work last sl st on round with the new colour as follows: Insert hook in first ch from beg of round, get the new yarn, make a YO with the new colour and pull it through st on hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

WREATH:
Worked in the round.
Work 36 ch on hook size 3 mm with silver green. Form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 1 ch, 1 dc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 dc in every ch = 36 dc - READ CROCHET INFO.
REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 60 cm. Cut the yarn. Fill the tube with some cotton wool and sew tog both ends in outer loops.

LEAVES AND BERRIES:
Work 16 ch on hook size 3 mm with dark olive. The leaves are worked in the round (which means you work through both loops of the 16 ch). Work according to A.1. When A.1 has been worked 1 time - READ COLOUR CHANGE, work berry as follows: Work 3 ch on hook size 3 mm with red. * Work 1 tr in 1st ch but wait with last pull through *, repeat from *-* 4 more times (= 5 sts on hook), then pull yarn through all 5 sts. Cut the yarn.

Pull yarn through sts on hook. Tie the 2 red yarn ends tog. Fasten the strands.

Work 12 leaves in dark olive and 6 leaves in khaki the same way.

Fasten the leaves with small stitches on the wreath.

TIES:
Cut 4 lengths of 3 metres each with red. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread tie through the wreath and hang it.
