Hi everyone! Sorry to get a wreath design for you so late in the season… but luckily peppermints are super cute and can be a whole Winter theme. πŸ˜€
I really loved having my Too Cute Halloween Wreath up, which I kept up for about 2 months, because it’s just silly and fun and so I wanted to make another wreath design for my house. I didn’t want to make it anything you might see everywhere so I came up with the peppermint candies. The fun thing about this pattern is that you can make the wreath in as many or as few candies as you’d like, in an arrangement of that’s to your own liking or you don’t have to make a wreath! You can make earrings (which would be just like making the pumpkin earrings) or just add to a center piece with a couple lil handmade candies. It’s all up to your creativity, I’m just here to inspire!

 

You can purchase an ad-free pdf of this pattern in my Ravelry shop for $1.50 – this helps me to continue to make patterns week after week. πŸ™‚

Materials

  • US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Aran/ medium/ size #4 weight yarn
    • .5/ 1/ 2.5 oz. | 25/ 51/ 127 yards
    • At least 2 colors
    • I used Caron One Pound
  • Yarn needle
  • Ami stuffing (optional)
  • 18β€³ wreath form
  • Hot glue or straight pins

Gauge

  • 4β€³ = 16 scs x 14 rows

Terms/stitches used:

  • RS: right side
  • Magic circle
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Ravelry linkSc: single crochet
  • Dc: double crochet

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st of the row.
  • This pattern is worked in 4 parts, from the center of the candy out. You will make 2 circles and secure them together with a single crochet around the edge. You will then add the wrapper edges (there will be 2 of them).
  • All 3 sizes begin the same way and then differ as you make them larger, the wrapper edges are different in each.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • The ch 3 in the wrapper section does count as a stitch.
  • The first st of the row is always worked into the same st as join.
  • You will need to know how to create a slip knot on your hook for this pattern.
  • Every stitch in the circle section is a single crochet. The directions for the circles (where the color changes are) will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many stitches to make. In the instructions that look like (number + 2x) or (2x + number) the 2x part means you will sc twice into the stitch.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • Color A is white (Caron One Pound in White) and color B is red or green (Caron One Pound in Scarlet or Forest Green).

Sizing as follows: small (medium, large)

Take 2 circles of the same size, with the “wrong side” of both pieces touching, and create a slip knot on your hook with color A. Begin anywhere on the circles and sc into each single crochet around the edge (row 5, 8 or 15 of the circle) and slip st into the first st – 30 (48, 90) scs
Note: if you would like a little bit of puff to the candies, like you see in the photos here, add a bit of polyfill or stuffing to the space between the two circles before you secure them all the way together.
Do not fasten off on this size, move onto the wrapper.

– For the wreath –

You need to purchase a wreath base for this pattern. I used an 18″ Straw Wreath from Ashland that I purchased at Michael’s. I didn’t do anything fancy to the wreath, other than wrapping some ribbon around it, and then I pinned the candies to the wreath. You can use glue to attach them if you’d like, it’s totally up to you. I knew I was going to be removing them for photos so I didn’t glue them all down. If you’d like to make a peppermint colored wreath base, you could use the instructions for the Halloween Wreath and change the colors.

Tada! I hope you like this design and make it into a wreath or just make a bunch of lil candies and show off how cute they are! πŸ˜€
