This year my daughter rediscovered the joys of French Knitting and Louise, my sister and co-blogger, came up with a fabulous idea for some Christmas decorations so we thought we'd give them a try.
Red and Green Wool
Knit 25-30cm (approx 1 ft) of cord leaving a long length of yarn on both ends, one for sewing and one to make a loop. Form the cord into five petal shapes and sew at the centre using the length of wool/yarn attached. I sew one petal at a time. Make loop for hanger. Add button embellishment.
As I was hanging these in the garden to photograph a bee came and landed on our little knitted flowers and I couldn't help but think how delightful it would be to have these hanging in the garden in the middle of Winter when everything is quite bare. Minus the buttons and I can see our own little garden yarn bombing beginning to take shape...although, these ones will be hanging on our Christmas tree first!
