This book is a brilliant labour of love, and if you've never thought of knitting what grows in your garden before, we bet you won't be able to resist once you've seen this. --AllAboutYou.com
the real magic of this book is in the beauty of the accurately recreated flowers themselves. --Knitting & Crochet Home
Everything is coming up roses with this delightful collection of flowers to knit and crochet. This work offers the perfect way to use up scraps of yarn or practice using novelty yarns - you can use them to decorate clothing, hats, bags and belts, embellish home accessories, or make a beautiful bouquet as an unusual display piece. Choose from simple spiral roses, pretty poppies, elaborate layered blooms, and fabulous felted flowers. The flowers are beautifully arranged on the pages, with stitched leaves and embroidered stems, and are cross referenced to a separate section featuring clear pattern instructions and information on yarn requirements. You will also find plenty of inspiration for embellishing your finished flowers with beads, buttons, sequins, and embroidery, plus ideas for using them in a range of fun ways, from unusual jewellery to decorating gift-wrapped packages.
