Forest Garland Designed by Edie Eckman
Whimsical and charming, the Forest Garland conjures up images of a winter wonderland right inside your home. Super-quick and addictive to make, a little yarn goes a long way with this decorative piece. Both knit and crochet versions are included – and the pattern as a whole is beginner friendly, too! Our smooth, supple Cotton Supreme yarn is the perfect match for this project, and the sequins of Cotton Gold are like a beautiful garland decorating the tree.

PATTERN NOTES The trees are joined using a crochet chain. You may substitute a twisted cord or knitted I-cord if you prefer. If you plan to use an alternative to the crocheted chain, leave a long cast-on tail. Don’t weave in that end but use it to attach the tree to the cord.
The two yarns are held together as one throughout this pattern.
