Knitting Needle Flowers

I was inspired by someone I follow on Instagram to make some knitting needle flowers.  On a really hot and humid afternoon when it was far too uncomfortable to be outside I got out my little left over balls of yarn and my 4 mm crochet hook and made 8 little flowers.  Thanks eighbysix for the inspiration.

The pattern I used was sort of my own but after looking around I found others had made similar flowers.

Start with a chain of 4 and slip stitch to join the chain.

Chain 2 and then do 11 hdc in the loop.  If you want a bit bigger flower you can chain 3 and do 11 dc in the loop.

The next row was easy to complete.  Do a sc, hdc, dc, tc, dc, hdc, sc in the first hdc in the loop (or in first dc if you are making a bigger flower), skip the next hdc and repeat the process around the loop.

You will end up with 6 petals.  Join the last one to the loop and tuck in your ends.  All finished.

You could do the centre of the flower a different colour to the petals.  I chose to do each flower all the same colour.

I made 2 of each colour flower so that each pair of needles will have the same colour.

Into the little hole in the centre of the flower you insert the knitting needle.  The end of the needle becomes the centre of the flower.

Into a jar I popped some little balls of left over yarn.  This helps to hide the bottoms of the needles.  It makes a nice display on my work table.

You could use needles you use every day, vintage needles or ones you rarely use.  It is easy to slip off the flower if you want to knit with the needles or you could even leave them on if it doesn’t interfere with the knitting.

I do store my knitting needles in a felt storage holder that I made, and it rolls up quickly and ties with ribbon.  But it is nice to have some knitting needles out on display.

    This is a wonderful idea for the end of a knitting needle, and to use up the yarn stash! I crochet, and would love to place the flowers on the ends of my Tunisian/afghan crochet hooks for display! Thanks for sharing this cute pattern!
