Pattern Description:

I chose the name Winter Flowers because these blooms are woolly and robust, they are knitted in sock yarn, which makes them durable too.

The flowers have an inner and outer layer which are knitted separately and then sewn together. They are perfect little adornments for bags, hats and other accessories. You can also add a pin to the back of a flower and turn it into a brooch.

For an INTERMEDIATE knitter because it's a quick knit and knitted flat on straight needles, but there are lots of increases and decreases and short rows (fully explained in the pattern).
