April can be full of showers, which will give you the chance to cosy up and knit some beautiful flowers!
It’s great fun to bring flowers into your knitting! Work them in with Fair Isle motifs or intarsia to jazz up plain jumpers or cushions, or knit 3D flowers as appliqués for bags and coats – making flowers is a fabulous stash buster!
Who could resist this perfect little mouse on her way to a wedding with a basket of flowers? The primroses are perfect spring flowers! You can knit this little sweetie with scrap yarn, and match the colour of her flowers to her dress!
If you love intarsia, this bag is a joy to knit in Rowan Felted DK which comes in over 20 shades, so you can change your colours to match your favourite flowers! Add handles of your choice to make a bag that is all your own!
Blooming beautiful! We love these flowery socks from Beate Zaech! The pattern comes in English, French and German, and you’ll only need 10g of scrap coloured yarn for the flower petals! It’s a complex construction, ideal for sock knitters looking for a challenge!
Use your favourite 4ply yarn to knit this beautiful shawl, full of petal and flower motifs inspired by “primroses and wood anemones glimpsed on the forest floor on a sunny spring morning.” It’s perfect to throw around your shoulders to keep the spring breeze at bay!
If you long to knit lace, but a whole lace project seems too daunting, start with a pattern that gives you a little taste! This beautiful scarf has a great edging of heart motifs and flower petals that is a joy to knit, and you get to do it twice, at each end of the scarf! It can be knitted in 4ply, sport, DK or worsted/aran weight yarn, and the length is entirely up to you.
This darling little hat can be knitted to fit babies weighing 6-8lbs right up to 3-5 years! The pattern has detailed instructions and charts for the flower motifs, and is knitted here in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.
Knit some flowers into your projects and show us in the Community!
