I knit these simple flowers to use up odds and ends of yarn, and they have so many uses including using them as page markers. I was recently asked to share the pattern, so here it is.

TECHNIQUES: The flower knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, and work a k2tog decrease. The stalk is a single crochet chain worked on a crochet hook (but you could use a length of ribbon or plaited yarn if you don’t know how to crochet).

FINISHED SIZE: The finished flower is approximately 4.5cm wide.
