I don't think there is any way to convert the pattern. They are too different. You might be able to find a similar pattern and put it together like that.

That is really a pretty garland. If you must have it you will probably need to learn to crochet. :-) Crocheting isn't hard. That pattern uses most of the basic stitches and if you made it you would learn about all you need to know about crocheting to do other projects. I think there are sites about crochet like this one where you could get help. Crochet is a good adjunct to knitting, you often see it in finishing for a knitted item. There is even a crochet folder here at KH. Good luck.

You could always knit up some leafy shapes and felt them and make the wreath out of that. It's a beautiful pattern

It is a bear to do. I'm actually attempting to do this myself (although this effort is on hold due to other projects I've got in the hopper right now). Here is some guidelines that will MAYBE help...
