The World of Flowers in Wool
A stick and knitting needles to wrap the yarn around; a rubber band, glue, and floral wire to hold the work in place; and wool of many colors: These inexpensive everyday materials combine with a brand-new technique that unfolds in dozens of drawings to make the loveliest true-to-nature flowers. And it all begins with a simple loop, pinch, and twist of the wool to form buds, petals, and leaves. For every flower, you’ll get information on the length of the loops, the hue and thickness of wool to use, the size of the knitting needle you’ll need, and the precise method of construction.
