Intro Introduction:

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.
