Knitted flowers are such a pleasure to make. A couple of years ago I made a bunch of them for a good friend’s daugher and made it into a beautiful flower crown.
These are mainly from this beautiful book: 100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet by Lesley Stanfield. It’s a treasure trove for many different flowers and even some vegetables, I highly recommend it.
Some of the flowers I had knitted in previous years, so really, all I needed to do was make the crown, which I did by knitting up a tube and threading a wide elastic band through it. And then sewing the flowers onto that crown.
Before I posted this beauty off to my friends daugther I had to take some pictures of me wearing it. It made me so happy.
Doesn’t it make your heart sing? My friend was kind enough to send me some pictures of her daughter, who is a genius with make up, check her out!
