All I want for Christmas is to make a wreath

Gee, if I could only make a Christmas wreath
Then I could show you my amazingly crafty crochet skills on my front door for Christmas!
Or something like that. It’s a simple request, really.
I went down a pretty wild rabbit hole over the weekend, trying to find the “perfect” crochet Christmas wreath pattern.
I did find two that I really liked for the base of the wreath, since I want to do twisted colors instead of just simple color blocks.
I have a creative brain but I don’t have an engineering brain, so reverse engineering this just makes my brain go to mush. I’m sure there is a very simple way to make the stripes twist, but I just can’t figure out how to get there. (If anyone has any tips for this, please share!) Sadly, this was a pattern kit from Craftsy, and is no longer available. I have sent a message to the designer of the pattern, hoping to find out if she has the pattern for sale somewhere, but haven’t heard anything back yet. I love this concept and think it would be super pretty with red, green, and possibly white. Or red, green, and a hint of gold.
Another example of the twistedness that I liked was this one:
Unfortunately, THIS pattern is only available through a crochet magazine and you have to pay for a subscription, so there is no direct access to it otherwise.
AHHHH! I just want to get cracking on a wreath already!
If you are on Ravelry and want to take a gander at the vast number of wreaths available to make (and this is just crochet), check out the search results here.
I’ll keep you few readers posted if I succeed at this project. I have had a styrofoam base sitting in my craft room, just waiting to be used for decorative purposes….
