Crocheted & felted napkin ring

This is a very simple, but cute design. My example is made in red with Christmas in mind, but you can make them in any colors to match the seasons :)

You will need:
*pure wool yarn
*4mm crochet hook

Chain 27, slip stitch in the first chain to form a ring
Chain 2, hdc in every stitch around, - 28
Repeat first round five more times (6 rounds total)
*Chain 3, 2 dc in same space, 3 dc in every stitch around, join with a slip stitch in top of the chain 3
Break yarn, fasten off
Attach yarn to the other side of the ring, repeat from *
Weave in all ends before felting


Felt in washing machine on a normal cycle (40-60 degrees C) and a small amount of mild detergent (no bleach), and less water if you have the option. Pull into shape when the rings are wet, leave to dry. All done :)
