To continue the theme of flowers this week, I thought it would be fun to share some more knitting patterns so you can knit your own, whether you make a bouquet of knit flowers to display or a single flower to put on a headband or your coffee cozy.
The Pinwheel Flowers by Frankie Brown might not look quite like any flowers from nature but they are sure to bring a smile to your face. These would be great as decor for a child’s party, among other things.
Paulette Lane’s Simple Knitted Flowers are, in fact, just that, and they’re a great way to use up a little bit of leftover stash. Wouldn’t they be cute decorating gifts?
The Knitted Flower from Miss Crafty Fingers was originally knit as a brooch, but there could be lots of ways to use it. I think it would be great as a hair tie, too; check out Katherine Vaughn’s Flower Hair Elastic for another idea. And speaking of hair ties, this Knit Flower from Sue W. Thompson is great for a baby’s headband or to decorate a hat (Libby Johnson has another great flower headband for kids, by the way). And further speaking of babies, don’t miss the lovely Pacifier Clip from Susan B. Anderson, which would be great for other purposes as well.
Christine Grant’s Poppy Buttonhole Accessory is perfect for days of remembrance, or just knit it for display. The Flower Power Posy from The Handmade Homemaker is another cute one, and it’s mostly just casting on, binding off and finishing so you can make a bunch with whatever yarn you have in no time. Also check out the Flower – Bloem pattern from Saartje de Bruijn and Flowers for Mam from Andrew Craig Williams for more floral inspiration.
Are you ready to knit some flowers? I’d love to hear how it goes!
