  8. I just Love them. I make knitted sandals for toddlers, and these look just beautiful on them with a button.
    I found a new obsession!!! Your page. Now I have to run, my cat is playing with my ball of yarn I just wound. LOL

  11. Hi, kind of a newbie. Does this (2sts on right hand needle) indicate just slipping two stitches over?

  13. No dumb questions here. I wondered the same thing.
    I knitted one on a US3 with DK and it Came out about an inch in diameter. Very cute but would require a bead, or wee tiny button for the center. Very sweet and I'll make more this size, but it is tiny so will also try a little larger needle and see what happens with that.

    1. I read on Ravelry you use whatever needle size you like and you get the corresponding size flower. I need tiny ones so i will be using a size 1. For bracelets im knitting for Christmas. They sure are pretty little flowers arent they?

  14. Beautiful little flower. How can I make it larger but in the same yarn as the hat I want to apply it to. The hat is made out of finger weight yarn.

    Thank you.
