Quick Knitted Flower

One thing that has really helped me with this challenge is the list of quick ideas I put together at the beginning of the month. There have been quite a few days where I was simply too busy to plan a more involved project, or even research ideas for a simple one, so that list has been incredibly helpful. Today was one of those super busy days (I was out running errands from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm today), and while I could have cranked out a couple more little knitted hearts, I really wanted to make something different since I’ve already made those twice this month, so I chose this knitted flower from my ideas list.

The flower used approximately 4-5 grams/9-10 yards of worsted yarn and I used the Knitted Flower Tutorial from Mack and Mabel. I think that it also might be fun to play around with this pattern using different weights of yarn, like leftover sock yarn to make mini flowers.

January 29′s project: Quick Knitted Flower
