Roxy's Favorite

(224-)
Difficulty: Intermediate

Never did a man's fedora seem so feminine but when Roxy clipped her favorite felted flower to the hat band. She would wear one knitted flower tucked behind her ear in shades that matched her lipstick, or clip it to the lapel of her mannish coat. One flower inspired the neckline of her dress or decorated her patent leather high heels. If she had worn flip flops. . . There would have been a single one in the center of each.

Inspired by the costumes and characters in Chicago and a man's carnation boutonniere, Roxy's favorite felted flower is one that dresses up the plainest frock, bag, or cloche . . . and makes you look twice. Just like Roxy herself.

  • Cactus Flowers

    Cactus Flower Pattern

    (223)

    Delivery Method:

    Walking along a dry creek bed in Colorado, the plants you find are different than the ones I'm used to on the East Coast. Foliage can be spare, shades of silver, leggy. Flowers are sparse and often a surprise. Delicate blossoms atop slender stalks swaying with the wind. Now and again there is a cactus, its bold spiky branches stark contrast to the lacy leaves and flowers of the wild poppy and chicory. The cactus blooms are as confrontational as their beefy arms: fuchsia, fire-engine red, bright orange, startling white, dandelion yellow. The petals are as delicate as the poppy's ephemeral ones. Only when the sun hits them do they open, bright translucent halo around solid yellow stamens. Bumble bees, solitary bees, and honey bees flock to their centers.

Beautifully dazzling when wired and embellished with a sparkle or cabochon rivet in the center, these easy-to-make and quick-to-knit flowers are lovely scattered across the front of a bag, as decorations on your latest Ella Coat, or sewn onto Noni Flower Clips and then worn in your hair.
