I've always loved flowers, and so my aim was to make the flowers look realistic, for which tthe Lilac Brooch comes closest to that goal. The Rose and Sunflower are both easy to do. The beading at the center of the sunflower is stitched on afterwards - so there's no threading or hooking on beads. The Lilac is a bit more complex, but do-able for a intermediate knitter or even an eager beginner. It looks far more complicated than it actually is to make, as the pieces are knit separately, then joined. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, m1, k1b, p1b, k2tog, k3tog, p2tog, p2togtbl, ssk, s2kp2, s2pp2 - all explained in Abbreviations GAUGE 4.25 sts and 5 rows = 1" (2.5 cm) in St st with 1 strand yarn, and 3.5 sts and 7 rows = 1" in seed stitch with size 8 ndls and 2 strands yarn held together, or size to give gauge.
