Here is a simple little project you can make to add cheer around the house. Crocheted chains make "evergreen" garland and are topped off with festive bows. Make it very long for a mantle or window, or do what we did and decorate a dolly's house!
Evergreen Chain Garland
By Jennifer Dickerson
- Green Worsted Weight Yarn (I made strands in a few different shades of green to give it added dimension)
- Red Worsted Weight Yarn
- J (6.0 mm) Hook
- Tapestry Needle
- Make the first chain as long as you'd like your garland to be, accounting for the drape of the garland. Learn how to crochet a chain here...
- Make several more, in the same green or different shades of green until your chain "bundle" is as thick as you want it to be.
- Tie the bundle at either end with a small piece of yarn. Also, tie where each bow will go in the middle area of the garland. Because mine was smaller, I did just one tie in the center.
- Make as many bows as needed to decorate the garland. Click here for One Round Bow pattern...
- Hang garland under a windowsill, mantle, doll's house, underneath cabinetry, above a mirror, or any place that needs some holiday cheer! You can use the ties from the bundles to hang it from a hook or your preferred hanging method. If you prefer a crocheted hanging loop, click here for an easy tutorial...
