Difficulty Level  

Requires knowledge of casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round on double-pointed needles, and some hand-sewing to complete the finishing process

 

Finished Dimensions

Finished dimensions vary with needle and yarn gauge. The pictured flowers were worked on a size 7 needle and measure 2.5 inches (5cm) across.

 

Gauge  

Gauge is not important for this project insofar as you can make flowers larger or smaller by changing the needle size and the yarn type. Work with fingering yarn on a size 3 needle will result in diminutive flowers. Work on size 50 needles and a triple-strand of super-bulky, and you will get pizza-sized flowers. Gauge is POWER!

 

Yarn Requirements

Each flower is made with between 3 - 4 yds (2.75 - 3.75m) of worsted weight yarn when worked on the recommended needle size

 

Other Materials

  • US size 7 (4.5mm) set of 5 double-pointed needles 
  • 5 locking stitch markers to hold stitches for each petal
  • Sharp-tipped, large-eyed darning needle for weaving in ends on the flower.

Optional Materials

  • Noni color-matched Seed Beads and Thread packages
  • Small gauge sewing needle for beading (I pick a needle that I can comfortably thread AND it will fit through a size 8 seed bead
