KNITTED FLOWERS


I've been passing time in front of the TV in the evenings (the programmes lately are such rubbish that I need something to engage my brain) knitting these flowers! I warn you they're addictive!

They're knitted on 6mm needles with pure wool yarn, and the pattern is designed so that you put the flowers in the washing machine and they felt up - I'll let you know if it works. The flowers come out about 3" but of course they may shrink as well as felt.

It seems entirely possible that many of my friends and family might be getting a felt flower brooch in their Christmas stockings ....

If you want the kit which includes yarns and pattern go to www.knitting4fun.com.

What pretty little flowers , I can just imagine you ending up with a big bag full. I bet they are very addictive once you start making them and great that you can use up lots of odds of wool. They are lovely Rosie, Jaqi x

I've seen crochet flowers, but not knitted ones. Have you got a pattern or link to share?
