Flower Brooch

I just whipped this up at the request of a friend.  Seems like a great way of using up lose buttons and odd bits of yarn.

Odd bits of dk yarn
4mm needles
Broach pin back

petals threaded

Layered petals


Pin back
Make 10 petals in 2 colours (5 in each colour)

Cast on 8
1: knit
2: purl
3: knit
4: purl
5: knit
6: purl
7: knit
8: purl
9: s1, k2tog, k2, k2tog, k1
10: purl
11: s1, k2tog, k2tog, k1
12: purl
13: s1, k2tog, k1
14: s1, p2tog, psso

Thread 5 petals onto a length of yarn. Tighten into a circle. Do the same with the other. Layer them together. Attach to each other. Sew on button in centre. Sew broach back on the reverse.
