Winter Blooms
  0 customer reviews

Brighten even the dullest of winter days with one of these colorful blooms used as a corsage, hat ornament, boutonniere, or decoration for a headband. They are knitted of luxurious mohair/silk yarn and embellished with your choice of knitted leaves, feathers, crystals, jeweled buttons, crocheted stamens, or embroidered French knots. As an extra bonus, all the elements for a bloom can easily be completed in an evening.

The blooms are made from individual rosettes knitted, then sewn together, using the following lace stitches: yo, k2tog, sk2p, and p3 tog. Leaves are made with yo, ssk, and k2 tog. Basic sewing skills are required to assemble the rosettes and leaves and to add a felt pin backing.

Finished size: corsages measure 3 3/4" in diameter; boutonnieres or small blooms, 3 1/4". Large leaves are 2 3/4" x 2"; small leaves, 2 1/4" x 1 1/4".

A pair of 10" straight needles #6 is needed to knit the rosettes and leaves and a G crochet hook for the crochet cast-on. If crocheted stamens are desired, use a #2 crochet hook with embroidery or crochet thread or scrap lace weight yarn.

One 25 gram ball of Aloft Kid Mohair and Silk will make 5 corsages. Several yards are needed for each leaf.
