Review quote

Taking on a new project doesn't have to involve investing in an expensive bundle of yarn. Instead, you could work your way through your existing stash. With 20 fabulous flowers to knit, you can transform all of your odds and ends into truly stunning creations. You could even use your finished flowers to add embellishments to existing projects or to make a stunning wreath that will brighten up your home. * Let's Knit * Feb 10

Grow your own flowers in a rather different manner-knit them! Here are twenty flowers to create and twenty suggestions as to how to use them in this latest entry in the Twenty To Make series. This is an ideal book to buy if you (or the recipient) have not long since learned how to knit and are anxious to actually make something but nothing too large and daunting. These flowers grow quickly (pardon the pun) and only use the most basic of stitches, and so are ideal for anybody who wants to get used to following a pattern and to making something up. They are also great for anybody who has lots of oddments of yarn to finish up, or for inveterate buyers of odd balls of yarn in sales (i.e. most knitters). The flowers are lovely, and can be used as pins, corsages, and trimmings for hats and bags, while you are also allowed to make them to sell for charity. The flowers themselves cover all four seasons, although sadly there are no Christmas ones. Snowdrops, tulips, zinnias, cherry blossom, lilies, cosmos, poppies, chrysanthemums and more are covered so there is something for most other occasions. This is a fun book that is small enough to slip into your knitting bag and would make a great present. * Myshelf.com * Mar 10

Embellish knitted projects with the flowers inside this handy little book. There's a wonderful display of roses, daisies, lilies and more, all waiting for you to pick up your needles and bring them to life. Each pattern is presented across two pages, with a nice big picture of the finished flower. This will help when you're knitting, as you can see your work starting to resemble Susie's designs. All of the flowers can be knitted with scraps of yarn that you already have at home; use them to make brooches, embellish hats and bags, or make pretty hair accessories. This book will make a lovely gift for a friend who knits, or but it as a treat for yourself, especially if you've never knitted flowers before. * Knit Today * May 10

Make your own stash of knitted flowers and you'll have instant decorations for bags, clothes and all your accessories. Susie Johns' book shows you how, with 20 different floral patterns and clear step-by-step instructions. Susie's made sure most of the flowers are quick and easy to make, although some are slightly more difficult, so there's something here for everyone. For example, the daffodil and lily require you to knit in the round on double-pointed needles, while the Periwinkle and Sweet William are a little more challenging. All the flowers are ideal for using up oddments of yarn and make a great change in between knitting bigger projects, or when you just fancy a break. * Simply Knitting *

Our customer reviews

Most of the patterns in this booklet are full of errors and thus impossible to make. The make up instructions are insufficient and there's no tip about weaving in the huge, frustrating amount of loose ends. Very bad publication.show more

Great book, we turned many into hair clips and sewn on hats. Recommend it for someone just starting out knitting flowers.show more
