Basic 12" Wreath Form Cover - Free Crochet Pattern

My mom goes to a friend's house for Halloween every year, and each year, I make her a different home decor piece to take over as a gift. This year, she asked for a Halloween themed wreath, but because it was on Halloween, we went with a Fall Wreath instead. Stayed tuned for that tutorial! For now, here is the base so you can make your own wreath for whichever holiday or season.

If you would like to see a specific type of wreath done, drop me a line below :)
Behind the Scenes... Working away at one of my offices - my local Wawa. Hehe. In case you were wondering what the background is in the photos below.

Materials:
     - 185 yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used about half a skein of Red Heart's Super Saver in Aran
     - H8/5mm Crochet Hook
     - #18 Tapestry Needle for Sewing and Weaving
     - 12" Styrofoam Form Wreath Form - I used a white Floracraft brand found at my local JoAnn's

Time Spent:
     I had my form cover ready in just over two hours.

Measurements:
     This cover will fit a 12" foam wreath form.

Gauge:
      20 SC by 14 Rows = 6 1/8" wide by 3 7/8" tall

Abbreviations:
     SC - Single Crochet

Pattern:
     Chain 21. SC into the 2nd chain from the hook. (20 SC)

R2 - 130: Chain 1, turn. SC into the 1st SC, and each SC across. (20 SC)

Finishing: 
     Cut a long tail (I cut 60" worth) for sewing.

Weave in beginning tail, then re-thread needle with ending tail. 
Wrap the piece around the form, line up the stitches, and sew the two layers together. Once towards the end, it will look like it isn't long enough to connect, but it will with a little stretching. Finish sewing the sides together, then sew the beginning foundation chain stitches to the stitches from the final row.
Weave in your tail, and your wreath form cover is complete!
