Tutorial: Knitted flower

 

This is a simple little pattern, great for using up odds and ends of yarn - ideal for Fibreholics samples!

For each petal:

Cast on 3
Row 1: kfb, k1, kfb
Row 2 and all even rows: Purl all stitches
Row 3: kfb, k3, kfb
Row 5: kfb, k5, kfb
Rows 7 and 9: knit all stitches
Row 10: Purl
Cast off

Make at least 6 petals. You could make up to 10 if you want a very full flower. Then you just need to stitch them together.

  

I use the cast-off tail to sew each petal to the next. This leaves all the cast-on and cast-off tails in the middle. I twist all these tails together and use one of them to stitch them in place in a swirly pattern. I then use a crochet hook to pull the tails to the back of the flower, tie them off and trim the excess.

  

Et voila! You now have a sweet little flower. You could add a brooch back or sew it on to a bag or cardigan. I Like to sew these onto ribbon to wear in my hair.
