Step 1: Material and techniques:

Stuff you need:
- Yarn leftovers (I used sock yarn)
- matching needles
- darning needle
- Barette findings or bobby pins
- probably some hot glue (beware! Those sh** ist really HOT!!!)

Skills you need:
- Cast on (I used the longtail CO)
- kfb = knit front and back
- working flat
- ssk: slip, slip, knit
- cast off
- a tiny amount of sewing

Step 2: Knitting the rose itself

 Lets knit the flower with yarn #1:

- CO 5 sts.

1. row: *kfb* ~ 10 sts total
2. row: *p*
 3. row: kfb ~ 20 sts
4. row: *p*
5. row: *kfb* ~ 40 sts
6. row: Cast off purlwise

Pull the cast off thread under, roll the rose in shape and sew to fix the shape. The cast-on thread end is needed for sewing later!

Step 3: Knitting the leaf

Sew in the threads, arrange rose on leaf and sew the rose onto the leaf.

Sew or glue the finished flower on your finding.

I "weaved" the bobby pins through the little purl loops.

Hope you enjoy knitting and wearing!
These are really cute! They look like a lot of fun to make and wear :)
