Review

Embellish knitted projects with the flowers inside this handy little book. There's a wonderful display of roses, daisies, lilies and more, all waiting for you to pick up your needles and bring them to life. Each pattern is presented across two pages, with a nice big picture of the finished flower. This will help when you're knitting, as you can see your work starting to resemble Susie's designs. 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

Product Description

Knitters and textile artists alike will love knitting this beautiful selection of flowers. Using simple, easy-to-follow instructions, flower lovers everywhere will find their favourite here, where you can create a rose, cherry blossom, poppy, daisy, clematis, tulip, peace lily and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars printing errors 15 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
Lovely book Flowers actually come out better than pictures, BUT there are a LOT of printing errors in the instructions. I found at least 3 in the short while I was reading for example water lily K3 cast on 6 (8sts) should be 9, on the daffodil you are asked to find a button 8 1/4" inches round ??? and the sweet william round 4 increasing should read 40 sts not 50. As I haven't read the rest in detail there may be more mistakes, but the ones I have knitted up have come out well, with the adjustments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flower Power 18 Feb 2010
By suzi
Format:Paperback
This book contains some wonderful designs and the finish products have been very well received as presents. I even wore my knitted daisy as an unusual wedding corsage !

I have come across a few printing mistakes amongst the instruction, but even as a novice knitter, they are easy to spot and common-sense puts you back on the right track.

I've worked my way through most of the designs, think the book it great value for money and like the fact that it's small enough to fit in my bag, along with my knitting needles and a small ball of wool :-)

I'm no longer spend my time waiting for someone to buy me flowers....instead I'm knitting my own and best still...mine don't die.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eats up the leftovers 22 Nov 2009
By Elaine B Reader TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I reckon this is a very useful book to have to use up all the odd bits of yarn left over from knitting cardis, jumpers etc. The instructions are simple and you can easily make a rose, cherry blossom, poppy, daisy, clematis, tulip, daffodil, pansy etc just choose the flower shape you like and make it up in whatever colour you have - so easy to decorate knitted items, coats, even making up "bracelets" by stitching onto ribbon or braid - found that popular with preteens in the family. I'm hoping to get round to making one in 100% wool and then felting it - I may try enlarging petal sizes on daisy - if I do manage it I'll show it here as a pic. There's a choice of yarns, includes some novelty ones. Good book - especially if you like crochet flowers - but can't get the hang of crocheting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book for the price 3 Dec 2009
By Jennie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have several books on knitted flowers and added this one to my collection because of its very low price and on that basis I wasn't disappointed. It does have some nice ideas and clear instructions. However, if I was going to buy just one book on this subject, it would have to be the Lesley Stanfield 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet (which is a must-have).

3.0 out of 5 stars Knitty gritty 17 Oct 2011
By Jood TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't think this is a book for a beginner as some of the techniques are quite difficult e.g. knitting into every stitch can be a tricky one. Yes, it sounds easy, but when you've increased from 5 to 10, then 10 to 20, 20 to 40, it can be a bit of a struggle if you're not used to doing this sort of thing. Using a chunky yarn on a relatively fine needle (UK size 10) could also prove frustrating. Some of the instructions are incorrect, which again for a novice could be confusing. Fortunately I'm an experienced knitter, but some of the instructions had me laughing out loud....take the Poppy for instance...the materials list includes a "round button, 220mm (8 + 5/8")" I have never even seen a button measuring 8 + 5/8", and given the finished poppy apparently measures 4 + 3/4", wouldn't this be a tad large? Even 22mm is 7/8", so I reckon a novice would be completely confused by this. This is not the only error I've come across, so I think the proof reader (if one was employed at all) must either have been asleep, or not a knitter.

Some of the finished flowers are quite a bit a larger than I would want, even using the recommended yarn and needles.

Having said all that it is quite a useful little book, certainly for the price, but I doubt if I'll use it that often, and will probably look for something better.

This is an excellent book for knitted flowers. Very clearly illustrated and set out in lovely colour and with easy to follow instructions.
I am looking forward to trying out these flowers to enhance clothes, not to mention tea cozies, cushions, bags, etc.
