I started out with some left-over yarn, use a DK weight. I used Malabrigo Yarn Silky Merino and a size 4 mm circular needle. You don't need a circular needle but I just prefer to use it instead of a straight needle.
The pattern comes in different sizes but I chose a 6 petal flower, so here is what you do:
Cast on 74 stitches using the long-tail cast on method..here is a video on cast on method
Row 1: Purl
Row 2: : K2, *K1 slip this st purlwise back onto left needle, lift next 9 sts on left needle one by one over this st and off the needle, yfwd twice, then knit first st again, k2. Repeat from * to end.
Row 3: K1, *P2tog, K1,K1tbl, P1. Repeat from *to last st, K1.
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: P2tog to end of row.
Break yarn and thread through remaining stitches. Use as a single flower or stack 2 together.
Tadah... Here is the finished flower. So simple....so sweet. I will put a button in the center for a finishing touch.
I hope you enjoy it !!
