Knitted Poinsettia is an original knitting pattern by June Gilbank.

This decorative poinsettia is knitted flat using only basic stitches, so even a beginner at knitting can tackle it. The poinsettia is about 3.5″ (9cm) in diameter, and would make a lovely tree ornament, or a pretty table decoration, gift topper, or brooch.

Yarn: small quantity of worsted weight yarn in red, green and yellow

Needles: 4 US/ 3.5mm knitting needles (straight, circular or DPNs will all work equally well)

Size: approx 3.5” (9cm) diameter. (Your gauge and yarn choice will affect the finished size slightly.)

The PDF version (available for any size donation) is nicely formatted for printing, and I’ve kept the knitting patterns for all the pieces on a single page, so you can save on ink by printing only that page, if you prefer.
