Making some hair pins for wearing in my hair. These are inspired by my wedding shawl and the flowers I am having in my bouquet.

This is now going to be a hair comb, with multiple flowers attached to one hair comb piece. Here’s my preliminary write up of how to make each of my flowers.

Used a very minimal amount of yarn per flower (maybe a yard per flower)

For Black Eyed Susans/Rudbeckia:

CO 6
BO 5 (leaving one stitch)

Repeat 7+ times for each petal. Starting third petal, pick up one stitch from a petal across the middle and BO. Leaving one stitch on needle.

Sew on black seed beads and attach to hair pin.

For Red Petalled “Rose”

This is basically a picot edge, rolled into a flower capped with a bead.

CO 20
Work in stockinette stitch for 4 rows (ending after a purl row)
K1, (YO, K2tog) - repeat to end of row
Work in stockinette stitch for 3 rows (starting with a purl row)
Bind Off

Seam the Cast on and Bound Off edges together. Roll and seam the flat edge, you may choose to move the edge a bit downward as you roll to give a bit more depth to the flower. Draw one tail up through the center of your flower, add a bead and put back through the bottom of the flower and attach to your hairpin.

Purple Petaled Flower

CO 4
Work 4 rows Stockinette. (k row, purl row x2)
SSK, K2tog

Instead of pulling your thread through and cutting… bind off the side of your petal by picking up a stitch then binding off the top stitch and thus work your way back down to the bottom of the petal. This will round the top of your flower petal.

At the base of the petal you will have one stitch still live. Pick up another stitch from the base of the previous petal and then cast on 2 more stitches to start your next petal. The petals will overlap a bit at the base. Work 4 to 5 more petals and then using the final tail, seam them together and add your beads.
