Details: Product Description Everything is coming up roses with this delightful collection of flowers to knit and crochet. The perfect way to use up scraps of yarn or practice using novelty yarns, you can use them to decorate clothing, hats, bags and belts, embellish home accessories, or make a beautiful bouquet as an unusual display piece. Choose from simple spiral roses, pretty poppies, elaborate layered blooms, and fabulous felted flowers. The flowers are beautifully arranged on the pages, with stitched leaves and embroidered stems, and are cross referenced to a separate section featuring clear pattern instructions and information on yarn requirements. You will also find plenty of inspiration for embellishing your finished flowers with beads, buttons, sequins, and embroidery, plus ideas for using them in a range of fun ways, from unusual jewellery to decorating gift-wrapped packages. Review Spring 09 Lesley Stanfield clearly has a keen eye for flowers, as they burst out from the pages of this pretty book. From forget-me-not to poinsettia and lily-of-the-valley to mistletoe, garden favourites and exotic blooms, you'll find everything you need to make a bright bouquet or a pretty wreath – including leaves, a few friendly insects such as a ladybird and a bee, and even fruit and veg! Each of the 100 patterns has clear written instructions to either knit or crochet the item, and the crochet patterns are also charted, making it really easy to see how the flower is constructed. You'll find great ideas for how to use finished flowers in the back of the book. ― Simply Knitting May 09 Adorn anything and everything in sight with these beautiful knitted and crocheted flowers. As the cover shows in glorious color a vast array of flowers can be created to decorate holiday items, clothing, furnishings, presents and more. Not only flowers, but a few leaves, butterflies and vegetables too, as well as mistletoe and acorns. This is not a primer aimed at teaching the beginner to knit and crochet, but a book aimed at those who can already do these things to a reasonable standard. To jog the memory however there are useful tables of abbreviations, laundering symbols and some diagrams going swiftly through some stitches. The crochet patterns are shown with charts, so anybody not sure how to use these might be well advised to learn how to read them elsewhere, although the symbols used are given and explained. Knitting patterns are written out in the traditional manner. All the flowers are shown full size and looking their best on a series of pages first so you can choose easily what you want to make, then there is a section on knitted ones and a section on crocheted ones. These are arranged in skill levels, basic, intermediate and advanced. At the back is another section of projects to display your blooms, although sadly these are just shown and briefly described and you have to make up the patterns yourself or buy blanks. Decorate a peg bag with a fresh daisy to cheer up washdays, adorn a gift box with a poinsettia or crochet some forget-me-nots to use as buttons and trim for a baby's cardigan. This is a good example of a Search Press book - lovely photos, plenty of direction as to what to buy, instructions for making up and a gallery of master works. Also, an unusual and interesting subject not covered elsewhere. One for the keeper shelf. ― Myshelf.com June 09 This book is flying off the shelves - and for good reason. Lesley Stanfield has created a pattern in this book for every flower imaginable, from forget-me-nots to snowdrops. And then there are the incredible fruit and vegetable knitting patterns, including lemons, grapes, carrots and surprisingly beautiful asparagus. There are project ideas too, which give practical applications for these lovely decorative details. This book is a brilliant labour of love, and if you've never thought of knitting what grows in your garden before, we bet you won't be able to resist once you've seen this. ― A
