Don't Forget to Accesssorize

Another attempt at a pattern from one of Leslie Stanfields books, this time from "100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet".  With full knowledge that my ability to follow gauge is...well poor, (mainly because I like to play with different yarns that may not be what the pattern calls for, and I also like to use up my stash instead of buying new yarns)  I still wanted to try some of the flowers in this lovely book.  Hoping to not have a bunch of ends to weave in, I picked a really simple three color flower.

I used bits and pieces of cotton yarn.  Didn't need much.  For some people a little big, but for me, I think it turned out just the right size!  After using a spray starch to shape and stiffen the petals, I used the fabulous E6000 glue to attach a simple hair clip.

This project took absolutely no time at all.  Reading and figuring out the pattern took the most time.  More of these hair clips coming soon.  Maybe I will make all 100 flowers from the book?!?
