I made one of those poppies, and let me tell you, they come out BIG.  Like 6" across after felting.   So you might want to make some alterations in the pattern.  Now I just have to figure out what to do with a huge flower...

I used Brown Sheep's Nature Spun worsted weight.  It was kind of scratchy to work with, but felted up nicely.   You need to use a 100% animal fibre yarn (100% wool, or a wool/mohair blend for something hairier looking) to get the felting effect.

Your local library might have a copy of Nicki Epstein's Knitted Embellishments, which has several patterns for flowers.

Hi, has anyone ever made any pretty knitted flowers or know of a simple pattern? I'd like to make some to attach to a poncho.

There seem to be tons of crochet flower patterns out there, but not too many knit ones.  Here's one pattern I found

http://www.magknits.com/warm04/patterns/poppies.htm

I also seem to remember some past threads about this topic, you might just want to search through the completed and future projects boards and see what you find.

I'm new here and I LOVE this forum!!

I'm looking for some cute knit flower patterns to put on hats, bags, etc.  I've seen tons of crochet ones and may just have to break down and learn but I'm still hoping....

There's a great knitted flower patter in Winter 2003 Intervweave Knits that's reprinted from the book Weekend Knitting. It's for a washcloth (of which i've made several), but it's lovely. Done on circular needles you knit the five petals first and then knit into the middle (changing to double points near the end). I've modified it to make the center a different color. You colud change the size...these are large, about 10 in across. I use cotton chenille. as the patter suggests.
