Light Fingering ?

Quick to knit, charming additions to any knitted item, using only tiny amounts of leftover yarn.

This beautiful flower can be made in ANY yarn, using any sized needle, to create many different effects.

In my book, “Sleepy Eyes Knits: Dreamscape”, I list a number of ways to use these flowers, including adding them to the Amanda Hat or making several in feltable yarns and adding them to the front of felted bags.

Check out my Dreamscape book for more beautiful and antiqued versions of these pictures!
