Stephanotis and Rosettes

(218)
Difficulty: Easy

Madagascar Jasmine, otherwise called Stephanotis, are romantic flowers that whisper of misty mornings, sultry afternoons filled with perfume that no chemist can match, quite. They populate the bouquets of brides and bridal parties. Paired with little rosettes and sewn onto flower clips and on the lapels of jackets, around the necklines of sweaters.

Make them in pastels with embellished yarn and they are ethereal. Make them in darker tones for luxurious floral richness. Imagine the possibilities and you can knit them. . .
