Flowers are fabulous fun to knit. In a short amount of time, with a small amount of yarn you can have instant gratification.
Beginning knitters can practice their skills; more advanced knitters can enjoy a brief interlude to break up the monotony of a large project. Bring out your oddballs, your leftovers and rejects. Knit, felt and embellish.
What will you do with them? Since I’ve started knitting flowers, I catch myself thinking: “Now that could use a nice flower!” Embellish a knitted hat or bag or blanket, add a few at the ends of a scarf, put one on at collar of your sweater/coat/whatever, knit a dozen to cover a throw pillow. They can be chokers, wristlets, key chains, barrettes, and scrunchies; embellish a collar for your favorite furry friend. No green thumb required. All flowers can be made smaller or larger by using finer or thicker yarn and needles.
