Free Pattern – Another Rose by Any Other Name Brooch

Note you can buy this, handknitted by me for £12 from my Folksy shop, search for Laurencaraknits, or if you want to make one yourself, here’s what you need to do…

You will need:

Aran weight wool scraps in two colours or (DK & mohair held together)

4mm knitting needles

Darning needle

Pinking Shears

Fabric & Organza scraps

Brooch Back or Hairpin/clip

Instructions:

Cast on 120 sts with first colour.

Change to second colour .

1st row: p to end

2nd row: k2tog to end

Repeat these 2 rows til 4 sts left, pull wool through remaining sts and fasten off. Curl into a spiral shape and secure with a few stitches using tail ends. Weave in ends.

Using pinking shears cut 3 leaf shapes – 1 from green tweed fabric and 2 from organza in gold and green. With tweed at bottom and 2 layers of organza on top sew on to back of flower, slightly fanning out the leaves.

Sew on brooch back or hairpin and wear with pride!
