If you don’t have the time or the space to display the full cast of a Nativity play, this knitted wreath of the Joseph, Mary and Jesus characters could be your ideal handmade decoration this festive season. The wreath itself is a 25cm polystyrene wreath form covered with a knitted strip, and uses a provisional cast on and Kitchener stitch grafting. The pattern also incorporates a little stranded colour-work.

Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the wreath is knitted in acrylic DK yarns on single pointed needles (not in the round).

A pair each of 2.75mm and 3.5mm single pointed knitting needles (US 2 & 4).

Deramores Studio Anti-Pilling DK; double knitting/light worsted weight; 100% acrylic; One 100g/250m skein in each colour.

Tapestry needle, toy filling, a 25cm flat back polystyrene wreath form, small buttons for eyes and a 2.75mm crochet hook.

One size only - to cover a 25cm wreath.

For intermediate knitters and above, other techniques used include casting on and off, knits, purls, increases and decreases, seaming and a little embroidery to finish. The large star has a single crochet border worked on the crochet hook.
