Twenty to Make: Knitted Flowers

img_0283

At last week’s used book sale, I picked up this little dandy for $2.  I’ve always liked the idea of a bouquet of knit flowers.  I won’t ever do it, but it’s a nice idea!

No, what I’m envisioning is a hat, something fit for Carmen Miranda or Esther Williams.  So far, I’ve got a daffodil, a hibiscus and a peace lily.

I think maybe a water lily or a poppy next!  The order doesn’t really matter though.  I think this headwear masterpiece needs one of each!  Oh yes!

And somehow, it’s always the most ridiculous ideas I follow through on so this should be good :)

  1. The most ridiculous ideas are always the most fun! I know I’d be giggling through making a hat like that – silly projects are the best. Plus, if you need an excuse to wear it, Halloween is right around the corner!

    1. I don’t buy many books, storage is an issue in my tiny apt and who knits all the patterns in a book, ever? No me. Until now! I think I will! They’re really fun to make and perfect for using up little scraps!

  2. that sounds like loads of fun to wear! And I can think of many hat patterns that NEED a flower over the ear…. do show us the poppy, I love them, and I bet a knitted one is gorgeous. Then I will be bothering you to tell me how to find the pattern of course. :-)
