The yarn used in the pattern is a DK weight cotton yarn but you could use a heavier weight yarn if you wish and matching hook. I suggest using a cotton yarn if you can, as it holds its shape well and can be washed easily. I spruce up my crochet garlands every year by handwashing them gently and pinning out to dry. You can always bring them back to shape any time by pinning each triangle to your ironing board and giving each one a steam with a hot iron.

I hope it will inspire you to be creative with colours, and to make loads of garlands to brighten up your home and garden!
