Since it's all flowers all the time around here right now, I thought I'd share a couple of knit flowers I have made in the past with you.
This first one is from a Knitty sweater pattern called Folly, which is covered in these flowers (scroll to the bottom to see the flower pattern). It's very sweet -- about an inch and a half across and it looks like a little rose:
The other one I learned to make in a class at the amazing yarn shop Article Pract. I made it out of the most incredible super soft angora-blend yarn -- far too extravagant for a flower, but it sure does feel wonderful:
I did a bad job of cropping these, because that looks the same size as the red one -- it's actually about twice the size (approx. 3 inches across).
I always meant to put these on pins, but never have. They've just been on my bulletin board all this time. Now that I've taken them down, perhaps I should complete the project. Hrmm...
