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 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
