This little flower pattern was designed in support of the charity ‘A Place to be’, who are the chosen charity of Unravel Festival in Farnham this year.

Donate a knitted or crocheted flower and see them displayed at the show!

This flower is knitted flat using an applied i-cord for the edge of the petals. Everything is explained in the pattern and if you have never worked an applied i-cord, don’t worry, follow the instructions and it will work!

You can use any weight of yarn to make the flower. I have used a DK but in the pattern the needle sizes for other weights of yarn are stated. Just bear in mind you may need a different amount of yarn depending on the thickness. However, the flower is only small (about 3 inches across, so it won’t take much.

I also used some black beads for the sparkly eyes but you could embroider these instead.
