Free knitting pattern: Camilla’s knitted flowers

Our free knitting classes on Yarn Shop Day were a huge success! We thought we’d share our patterns on The Daily Stitch for everyone who was unable to make it on the day. These sweet patterns were designed by our knitting teacher, Camilla Miller, can be used to make hair clips and broaches or as embellishments on hair bands, waistbands, necklaces and more!

    Can you tell what happens once all four petals are knitted, please?

      Hi Viv,

      Once you have knitted all the petals, cut the yarn from the last petal making sure its long enough to thread through all the petals.
      Using a needle thread the yarn through all the live stitches and pull tight to make a flower shape.
      Sew in all the remaining threads.

      Happy knitting, We would love to see your finished flowers.
