Small Knitted Dogwood Blossoms

Hello knitters and happy spring!

If you follow me on social media, you know that I’ve been working on a petite version of the Knitted Dogwood Blossoms pattern. The original pattern was first released seven years ago and if you saw my video tutorial for this pattern, you’ll see that I mentioned a smaller version of the knitted flowers. Well, here we are, SEVEN years later…

So in celebration of the first day of spring, here is the pattern. Also, thank you to everyone who’ve stuck around and waited for this!
