Introducing the Floral Wrist Corsage. The five-petal flower is knit flat and the yarn is woven through the flower to create the petals and center of the flower. The bracelet is knit separately in a slip-stitch pattern. The flower is attached once the bracelet has been sewn together and blocked.
I chose to knit the project using Qina by Mirasol yarns which is a worsted-weight yarn made from a blend of alpaca and bamboo yarn making the finished project incredibly soft. Alpaca and bamboo yarns are naturally hypo-allergenic fibers which means that people with sensitivities can wear these fibers next to their skin.
Makes a great accessory for weddings and proms. Choose a yarn color that is featured at the event or select a color to compliment any outfit.
The bracelet can be made to fit any wrist size. Just take your wrist measurement and subtract 1.5 cm (1/2") from the length. The negative ease will help it stay in place on your wrist.
Sewing beads or pearls in the center of the flower will add some drama and sparkle.

I learned to hand-knit at the age of 5 through my grandmother and have always cherished this as one of the greatest gifts of my life. It has provided me with a vehicle for my creative expression and I believe that knitting is firmly embedded in my DNA.
