Here is a last minute Mother's Day gift, suitable for any "mum", mom, auntie or Grandma. It's a tiny knitted flower pin bouquet, which I am sure will be loved because it is home made

Step 1: Things you will need

Picture of Things you will need
This bouquet is knitted on 3mm needles with oddments of yarn in suitable colours that you may have in your yarn stash (if you have one, like I do!)

You can use any colours!

Step 2: Casting on

Taking your # 3mm needles cast on 10 stitches in one of your flower colours.
1st row knit two together (5 stitches)

cut of the yarn leaving a long thread and with a needle run through the five stitches left on the needle and sew up tightly. Then sew both edges together (not the cast on or off edges!) This is your first flower.

Step 3: Make more flowers in colours of your choice

I actually made 10 flowers because I was not sure how many I would need. I only ended up using 6 of them, but you can use as many as you like. They are all made the same way.

Step 4: Add a green centre to each flower

Take a short piece of green (or colour of choice) yarn and make two or three knots in the centre one above each other. Thread one end of the yarn onto the needle and pass through the centre of the flower. Take the other end of the yarn in the same way and pass that through the centre so you now have a green knot in the middle of the flower. Do this with all the flowers.

Step 5: Knit the wrapper for the bouquet

With white or colour of choice, cast on 20 stitches and knit 20 row in stockinette stitch. (one row plain knitting and one row purl). Bind or cast off depending on which continent you live in. In US it's called binding off and in England it's called casting off - don't ask me why!

Wonderful Idea! I can't wait to make it for Mother's Day tomorrow (Or in the US the day after tomorrow.) (:

I live in Pakistan and here it is also day after tommorrow

I think we use 'bind off' in the US cause it's less easy for the abbreaviations 'BO' and 'CO' (bind off and cast on) to get mixed up then it is for 'CO' and 'CO' (cast off and cast on)

I'm going to save this for my daughter for next time she needs to raise money at school for the "missions". Quick and simple and the knitters can knit and the other girls can put them together.

all you need is lots of practice. I've been knitting since I was five years old (and that's a very long time now!)
I have been Knitting since 12, so about 3 years ago. I have lots of homework so I barely get to practice. But I rejuvenated the Knitter in my Grandma!
