This brooch is fast to make and really low-tech.  Thought I'd post it here for anyone looking to make a quick gift for a knitter.  It looks especially cute attached to a hand-knit bag.

It's made from 2 toothpicks, 2 beads, and single-ply yarn, with a safety pin sewn to the back.  I glued the stitches on the needle so they wouldn't slip off.



EDIT: Forgot to add - it was hard for me to knit with the toothpicks because they weren't smooth, so instead I used the smallest needles I had, then slipped the stitches from the needles to the toothpick.  Much, much quicker that way!

very cute. I made something similar once for the front of an invitation to a knitting group. It was kinda hard knit that small. I never thought to make a pin that way. Great idea.

That's really cute, but I would have to make it for myself or my grandma. I only have muggle friends.
