  10. The best flower pattern ever! Thank you for sharing it.

  11. Hi, kind of a newbie. Does this (2sts on right hand needle) indicate just slipping two stitches over?

  12. Hi aorry to sound dumb but what size knitting needles do i use?

  13. No dumb questions here. I wondered the same thing.
    I knitted one on a US3 with DK and it Came out about an inch in diameter. Very cute but would require a bead, or wee tiny button for the center. Very sweet and I'll make more this size, but it is tiny so will also try a little larger needle and see what happens with that.

    1. I read on Ravelry you use whatever needle size you like and you get the corresponding size flower. I need tiny ones so i will be using a size 1. For bracelets im knitting for Christmas. They sure are pretty little flowers arent they?

    2. Use size needle suggested by the yarn wrapper. I have made these using 35 stitches to begin, and worsted weight yarn. Literally made hundreds to put on an artificial tree, brought Spring inside.

  14. Beautiful little flower. How can I make it larger but in the same yarn as the hat I want to apply it to. The hat is made out of finger weight yarn.

    Thank you.

  15. Just what I was looking for! Thanks so much for sharing your pattern.

  16. I made some lanyards to use at work and I wanted something cute to spice them up. These worked really well and it looks amazing.

  17. Ive just made the flower for the first time and added a ladybird button in middle and put it on a keyring, might make some for christmas gifts, thank you for sharing another fab pattern

  18. I’m a very amateur knitter and did a search for a daisy. This came up. Just want to say thank you for sharing it. I used big needles and got a large flower and put a button in the centre. It looks really nice.

  19. I've just started to knit and these are so pretty. My 2 year old grandaughter said they are beautiful granny. So you got 2 approvals here in UK.
    Thank you

  20. Thank you so much for all your lovely patterns. xx
