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
Fabric & Organza scraps
Brooch Back or Hairpin/clip
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!
