Christmas Advent 2015 – Day 9 Crochet Peppermint Garland

I have to apologize for yesterday. I did not manage to get a project posted. Turns out working on 4 different ones at the same time causes some difficulty in getting even one finished.

My project for Wednesday, December 9, is a crochet garland with ribbon woven into it.

Materials:

  • Yarn
  • Ribbon
  • Crochet hook (I used an “H” size)
  • Darning Needle

I used two different yarns, one a very light red with some satiny effect and the other a nice off-white cotton. I crocheted 22′ (yes, really, that does say 22 feet) of double crochet foundation stitch.  The link goes to a really good and detailed demonstration for how to do this stitch. I just did one row of this and then tied off my yarn. Next I measured out 24 feet of narrow ribbon in red and white. I then threaded this onto my darning needle and wove the red ribbon in between my crochet stitches. Once this was done, I wove the white ribbon through, this time in the opposite pattern, as you can see below. I tied off my ribbons and I was done!

With the red and white colors, I got a really great peppermint/candy cane effect and I am really happy with it.

Happy Crafting!
