Hello! This is my first post= )

Anyway, I saw a book in the library called like "Knitted Embelishments" or something. It had about 5 different knit flowers. I wish I could be of more help, but maybe that will be a start?

Hooray!  Thanks for that link, beeosh.   I just saw some crocheted ones in a shop that were way too pricey.  Now I can make my own.

The link to the "One free knit flower pattern" has been archived;-(.  If anyone happened to save it, can you email it to me? thanks!

I'd really like that pattern too, bummer!  The leaf pattern turned out nice though.

These are the instructions that I found in a book I have to knit a open petal posy. The book is called "Cool Stuff, Teach Me To Knit"

Size 8 needles
7 yards for each Posy

Cast on 81 Stitches
Step 1:
Bind of  your frist stitch and place a marker

Step 2:
Bind of the next 16 stitches and place another marker. Continue binding off 16 stitches and placing markers until there are 15 stitches remaning on the left needle, then bind off the remaining stiches. Leaving an arm's length of yarn for sewing, cut the working yarn.

Thread the yar needle with the long end. Fold the strip like a fan so that all the marked stitches are together.
Inserting the needle in the first marked stitch, weave the needle and yarn through each marked stitch and through the last bound off stitch. Pull the yarn up tightly. Remove the markers. Knot the yarn ends together and cut the yarn close to the project.

I havent tackled this project yet because I'm still learning but as soon as I do, it's going to be one of the first things i try
