Course Description

Learn how to knit these flowers* in just one hour! Add a stem to display in a vase, or make into a brooch, or hat clip, or hair band, or pencil topper. Make one flower, or make a dozen, the possibilities are endless!

In this class, I will show you how to make a knit flower, in any yarn of your choice. I will explain how to match yarn and needles and show options in different weights of yarn. You will learn how to make a yarnover, a simple lace pattern, and create the flower shape. We will discuss how to embellish your flower with beads, and explore options to turn your flower into a lovely accessory or gift!

You must know how to cast on, make the knit stitch, and bind off. If you need a refresher on how to do this, see my free video tutorials.

Each flower uses approximately 12 yards of yarn. They can be made in any weight of yarn, with the appropriate size straight knitting needles. The necklace project shown in the photo uses #3/DK weight yarn and US6/4mm needles. You will also need scissors and a yarn/tapestry needle. Beads are optional.

*This class shows how to make the flowers only, not the whole necklace.
