How to Knit a Flower
« on: February 06, 2011, 03:32:59 PM »
Crocheting is not something I'm good at, so I figured out how to knit those lovely flowers we all see on hats, sweaters, etc., and posted the directions to my blog, complete with pictures and a video.

Hope it helps someone!  Enjoy!

That's a great tutorial!  Makes me want a round knitting needle, just to try it.  Hmm...

Jewelry Dropshippers,

We really promote small & handmade here, not large wholesale companies.  Just FYI.

That's kind of why I ignored that comment Larissa.  I can arrange for round needles for you!

Yeah, I was ignoring it too, but I figured speaking up was better.  I kept wanting to delete the post, but I don't like to exercise such a heavy hand either.  So this way, the point is made, y'know?

Don't worry about those needles.  I've bookmarked your post and at some point I may buy some.  As it is, I still have to get to the awesome slipper kit Gina got me when she was my secret santa.  I've been so busy!

Love it!  It's really crazy, though.  The workload is really heavy, which is awesome and killer at the same time.  I'm tired a lot.  And with mandatory Saturday morning hours until the summer when we get Saturdays off, I barely have time for anything.  Saturday was my errand day, Bergen County has blue laws & nothing's open on Sunday!

I don't think I've ever knit flowers in the round!  :)

I'm going back through some of the posts to sort of catch up---
Sandi - that is soo cool.  I've crocheted lots of flowers but haven't ever tried knitting one - I'll have to try that out!  Thanks for posting it.
