The Fab5Flower by Kela Ahnhem for SistersInStitch

This is a simple and beautiful flower pattern done in only 5 rounds.

Not only does we have this beautiful flower but also gives you instructions for 5 different ways you can use them on with picture descriptions such as a; bookmark, penholder, shawl brooch, jar cover and a wall hanger.

AND: we have also made a 6th bonus pattern in which Tess (Therese Eghult) turns 3 of these flowers into a calm Scandinavian chic wallhanging.

Wish you lots of fun!

What you'll need

This little flower is a perfect scrap yarn project as you only need a small amount of yarn. Feel free to play around with yarn weight and fibre for different sizes and effects. 

For the flower; we used small amounts of Isla DK from Sublime/Sirdar.

Yarn A: Orange

Yarn B: Light lilac

Yarn C: Hot pink

You’ll also need a 4 mm hook, a scissor and a darning needle.


Note! We always use US-terminology for our patterns.
