A christmas present for my nan.  Tried finding a rose pattern but in the end I had to make one up myself .  The bee is made from shrinky dink.

I used this Free pattern for the shape of the Tea cozy http://www.craftown.com/knit/knit9.htm

And made these up myself

To make one leaf

cast on 18  ( I used size 5 needles)
row 1 , p2tog to 9
row 2 , k
row 3 , p

repeat rows 2 and 3 for 8 rows , bind off.   fold and sew the bound off edges together.


To make the rose

Cast on 90 ( I used size 4 needles) ( leave a fairly long tail)

row 1 , purl
row 2 , knit
row 3 , bind off 10 , purl till end
row 4 , knit

repeat rows 3 and 4 intill you completly bind off 

Start with the smallest end and threading you long tail start to wind the end around into a sprial , as you wind the petals occasionally pass your neeedle and long tail through to secure the petals in place , continue to do this intill you are happy with your rose shape.


Sorry I made that up myself and had to go by memory so I hope it works , id love to see pics if anybody tries to make one.
