There are a million ways to style Backyard Garden embellishments!

Just as spring flowers are beginning to bloom in your own backyard, you can knit a garden of bloom and bug adornments! The Backyard Garden kit contains patterns and yarn to knit 15 types of realistic flowers, leaves, and insects. Create a bouquet of knitted flowers that will never wilt, personalize a felted purse or knitted cloche, or embellish the front of a feminine lightweight cardigan. These cheerful accents are quick, fun knits to celebrate spring.

Kit contains yarn and patterns to knit the following: Blue Morpho butterfly, Monarch butterfly, dragonfly, inch worm, ladybug, buttercup, carnation, calla lily, vinca, morning glory, aspen leaf, four leaf clover, pothos, escargot begonia leaf, and fig leaf.

Kit includes one 50 gram ball of Palette in Serrano, Sweet Potato, Semolina, Cotton Candy, Edamame, Clover, Ivy, Chicory, French Lavender, and Black, along with pattern instructions for embellishments. You will need US 1 (2.5 mm) 32” circular needle and set of 6 DPNs, stitch markers, yarn needle, scrap yarn, small amounts of polyfil stuffing, small magnets, and chenille stems.

We have tutorials with lots of ideas for how you can use your flowers, insects, and leaves in your Backyard Garden kit as embellishments.
