I try looking hard for knit ones and end up just crocheting them (one of the patterns i know right off of the top of my head besides granny squares) has anyone else had this same issue? and how have you overcome it/what tricks did you learn to make them?
I've never knitted flowers myself, but I always remember my Grandma knitting small ones to put on her tea cosy (they were so sweet!). I found this website which lists a few sites with different types of free knitted flower patterns - I hope that it is helpful! http://knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/flowers.php
this book was in the co+k library.I clicked on it and it came up in
amazon..Also try the library.I hope you have a better one than we do.smile.
Ravelry is great too
@Crafty Fox, thanks for the link I found some brilliant shawls too
there was a pattern in a book i was reading last night....i'll dig it out and post it for you
Although I can't knit or crochet my mum does and I bought her this book for her birthday: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Flowers-Knit-Crochet-Lesley-Stanfield/dp/1844484033/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1297849377&sr=1-1
its called 100 flowers to knit and crochet by lesley stanfield
hope that helps
@Shelia A, happy to share! I love the Aeolian shawl but I think the technique might be a bit beyond my skill level.
@Crafty Fox.....I looked at that shawl too and thought.....maybe when I have more time ;)
Have a look at this one. It's all knit stitch. If you have problems with the yarn over bit I have a few YouTube links or I can explain it in words.
Hey Shelia! That looks like a shawl that I could actually make and that looks good too!
Thanks for the link
The caffinated knitter has other projects and they all are written in a simple way. I liked that one as it looks like it will knit up quickly and it gives a pattern that looks complicated but isn't...Lol
I'm going to use round needles in the same way as I use normal ones in a back and forth way. It's easier to keep lots of stiches on without it bunching or dropping stitches.
I made my own version of a knitted flower, I casted on 20 and knitted till it was a square, then casted off. I also cast on 5 of another colour and knitted till square then casted off. On the bigger square i had sewn all the edges into the middle then taken all the pieces between the edges and had sewn them in too. Once i had done that i finally sew the smaller square in the middle of the big one. I will be uploading a picture soon i think =/
hi my name is val and im new to this love knitting and looking for new projects im desperate to find a jemimma puddleduck pattern by alan dart it was in the womans weekly about 16 years ago lol i know its a long shot but ill try any way ty tc xxxxx
Here's a pattern:
Cast on 6 st.
1: Knit 3 yo, knit to end
Repeat 1&2 until you have 11 stitches.
For the 12th do 1 then Bind off the 1st 6 st. and knit to end.
Repeat until you have 5 points. Sew the ends together, then weave yarn in and out of the holes from the yo's, pull tight. Ta dah!
