knit flowers?
I'm looking for patterns for 3-d flowers. I did a felted bowl/vase kind of thing, and would like to put knit flowers in it. I'm pretty sure I can handle leaves, and the stems could be i-cords with wire or pipe cleaners through them, but the flowers themselves... I have one pattern that's a sort of applique onto a pillow that could probably be used, but I'd like a variety. Any suggestions?

Check them out here...
You might want to check with Knitting Pattern Central, since they are free and easily downloaded and usually have good pictures to show the finished product.

I have done some of the knitted flowers however, I usually use crochet patterns when I do flowers....somehow it is faster and I can finish quick with embellishments and get back to knitting.

Thanks much, Louine. I've got to bookmark that site. (As a matter of fact, just did. ) I've been referred there a couple of times, found things I've used, and had to be sent there again. You'd think I'd have "gotten it" by now. Oh, well. Better late than never. :D :XX:

I agree, knittingpatterncentral has a great selection. I used the felted rose & leaf for my Booga bag

I just bought the new spring/summer issue of Family Circle Easy Knitting. Overall the magazine was a bummer. However, there was one page in the magazine devoted to making posies (pansies) by knitting. It didn't seem to complicated, it was done on regular needles.

we were talking about his over on the "whatcha knittin" board and someone pointed out these cool Noni patterns (you can get just the flower pattern, don't have to get the bag) and there are also these in pattern only or kit that comes with everything you need to make the flower.
