Knitted Rose Pattern
I used 5mm needles and a dk acrylic yarn, but I would imagine you could use whatever yarn and relevant needles you like.
Cast on 20 sts (I used the thumb method)
Row 1 Knit
Row 2 (RS) K1 *yf, k1 rep from * to end.
Row 3 and every following alt row Purl
Row 4 Knit
Row 6 K1, *yf, k1 * to end (this creates a little eyelet in the work – very pretty)
Row 8 K1, *yf, k1* rep to end
Cast off 20 sts at the beginning of the next 6 rows, then cast off remaining stitches. I knitted all 6 rows.
At this point the work looks a little strange, but it soon takes shape. I worked a row of running stitch along the cast on edge of the rose and pulled tight to make the flower.
Voila one knitted rose.
Let me know if you make any, and let me know if the pattern makes sense!
