mini springtime wreath...

 What a fun little project this was!
I joined in on another CAL (crochet along)
at the start of the month...
and then our month got a little busy!
never mind...I still managed a bit of crochet & knitting.
The original pattern is for an Autumn Wreath made from yarn.
But I decided I would make mine from 3ply cotton and because it is springtime in Australia at the moment I went with springtime colours, it will decorate my daughters room of course ;)
By using the 3ply cotton (Milford Soft) & a 2.5mm hook
this little wreath measures approx 10cm (4") in diam.
approx 1/2 the size of the original.
 
It was so much fun to make and you can find the original pattern
