Giving flowers is the traditional way to show someone you care. But why not present a loved one with knitted flowers instead of the kind that will be past its best in a few days?
These lovely little projects will bring a smile to all who receive them, and give you hours of pleasure in making them. With 22 pretty flowers to choose from, including a red rose corsage, an Angora-yarn poppy, African violets and lacy snowflake flowers, there’s sure to be a favourite for everyone. There are plenty of ways you can enjoy these adaptable makes – present them as a bouquet, create a flower garland, or attach them to brooch backs, hair slides or key rings. You are only limited by your imagination, so grab your knitting needles and have fun turning your stash of yarn remnants into floral works of art.

Table Of Contents CONTENTS:
These flowers are fast and fun to knit, and amazingly versatile. Best of all, they can be made from really small scraps of yarn. Most of the flowers are made using double knitting (DK) yarn. For best results, use smooth, good-quality yarn. Acrylic tends to be lighter, so it’s ideal for flowers on wired stems.
