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

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.
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.
