Birthday Girl

Birthday Girl Garland
This sweet little accessory will work up in no time! Designed with a couple of grown-up birthday girls in mind, it would also be an adorable accent for any day of the week. Pair it with jeans and a simple top for an evening out, or make a host of them 
in a rainbow of colors to amuse a princess, big or small. 
Dress up yourself, a friend, or even your home with these adorable garlands.

Although this pattern is written for a DK yarn using a 3mm crochet hook, gauge is not really important for this project and neither is hook size or yarn selection. The size of your hook and weight of your yarn will determine the size and appearance of the finished garland, so make a sample to see what the finished project will look like. For a rustic, homey look, use a solid colored toothy wool yarn. For ultimate sparkle, choose a shiny novelty yarn. 
Use a hook close  in size to that recommended on the ball band of your 
chosen yarn for the best appearance.

Skill Level: Beginner

Yarn: For garland A: Artyarns Cashmere Glitter and for garland B: Artyarns Beaded Cashmere and Sequins

Hook: 3.00mm
