STITCHES USED TO MAKE NAPKIN RINGS

INSTRUCTIONS for making thanksgiving napkin rings :

STEP 1: gather supplies

Do you have scrap plastic canvas leftover from previous projects?  Do you have scrap yarn?  That's all you need to make some leaf napkin rings for the dinner table along with a needle and scissors.

Although I used Hunter Green and Burgundy yarn for the leaves; you can use a different color scheme based on the yarn on hand.

STEP 2: cut plastic canvas for a napkin ring

For the napkin ring, cut a rectangle from plastic canvas.  Count the holes in the plastic canvas to cut a rectangle piece 10 holes x 36 holes.

Also cut a reinforcement piece 2 holes x 10 holes.

STEP 3: stitching leaf pattern

Thread the yarn through the plastic canvas needle eye.  If you have difficulty, try this needle threading hack

Following the chart, stitch the leaves using long slanted diagonal stitches Leaf DIY Napkin Rings Stitch Leaves and the tent stitch for the stem.

STEP 4: work background of the napkin ring

Then work the background with the tent stitch leaving two threads on each end unworked.  These two threads will be used in joining the ring. Leaf Napkin Ring Fill Background

STEP 5: Joining the DIY napkin ring

The napkin ring is joined and held together with a reinforcement piece. 

Bring the yarn up through the hole where you'll begin the tent stitch.  Refer to the following picture for the placement of this stitch. Leaf Napkin Ring Stitch Background

Line up one unworked row of holes on the reinforcement piece behind the unworked row of holes on one end of the napkin ring rectangle. Leaf Napkin Ring Attach Reinforcement Work the tent stitch through both thicknesses of plastic canvas all the way across the row. 

Then bend the plastic canvas into the ring and line up the other unworked row of holes on the short end of the ring with the unworked row on the reinforcement piece. Leaf Napkin Ring Make Into RingStitch through all thicknesses to hold the ring together.  Stitch the entire row. Leaf Napkin Ring Stitch along reinforcement

What's left is one row of plastic canvas threads unstitched. Leaf Napkin Ring Finish last rowFinally, stitch the last row of threads.
