You need a cute pillow, baby mobile, button or spring decoration? These cute and versatile flowers will fit any bill. They are easy to knit, can be made from any yarn weight and will use up your scraps in an adorable way.
3 Different sizes are given.
Following techniques are used to knit these flowers:
- knit in the round (on double pointed needles or cable needle)
- simple increases and decreases
- picking up stitches (optional. You can also knit parts separately and sew on later, if you prefer)
What you need:
Yarn: Depending on the desired size of your flower, you will need a hand full of sock weight leftovers, or a box or bulky yarn. The important thing is to use yarn of the same weight for the entire flower.
For the big flower (used as a pillow) I used 9x 5-6grams of Wooltopia Rainbow Minis Merino (sock weight, 4ply). The pillow measures 35cm/14in in diameter.
The small flower measures 6cm/2.5in and used up 9×1-2g of the same yarn. The medium flower measures 15cm/6in and I used 9×3-4g.
Needles Choose needles according to your desired yarn, either a set of double pointed needles or
a cable needle, as you prefer. I used 2.5mm double pointed needles for my flowers
- Tapestry needle to sew in ends
