Knitted Dogwood Blossoms

Hello knitters!

With crazy storms rolling in throughout the country earlier this week, much damage was to many areas including the southern U.S. In fact, it was a very close call for us. But with the storms behind us, the sun shines again and the birds chirp once more as we move forward. For those who were affected my the recent storms, you are in my thoughts.

On the flip side, Spring brings warm weather, birds and flowers. For a knitter, what can be more perfect than knitted flowers for Spring? With that said, I have finally finished a pattern for knitted dogwood blossoms that I’ve been working on for the past week or so.

This knitted flower is great for brooches, additions to hats and scarves or use it in place of a bow on gift boxes! The Knitted Dogwood Blossoms pattern makes a dogwood flower approximately 5″ (12.7 cm) large. Note: each piece is knitted individually and needs to be assembled. Please view video tutorial below.

 Assembling Flower

Cut green yarn about 7″ (18cm) long. Thread the yarn through the petals (as shown below), tighten the yarn and tie a knot. Pull the loose ends of the petals to the back of the flower.

Attach the bud through the middle of the flower and use the loose ends to sew the bud to the flower. Weave in all loose ends.

Optional: use the loose ends located at the top of the petals to sew the petals together at the base of the petals.

    Thanks for the dogwood pattern – the ‘baby’ tree my children gave to me is now about 15′ high! Alas, I no longer live in that house.

    I plan on making at least one of your flowers for a shawlette that I made for a friend. (it will help her to know which side is the right side)
