A birthday bouquet

With a family like mine containing three enthusiastic knitting girls out of four, can you expect less than hand knit birthday bouquet?

Best of all was my daughters comment, when she heard that we were going to my sisters birthday party. This is what she said to her girlfriend: We are going to my aunts birthday this weekend - she turning 40 tomorrow? But you know what? She doesn't even look like a 40 year old?! And she's SO right - clever girl

How to knit flowers

Knitted flower

Briefly I believed I had made a brand new knitting pattern. But then I realised that the only difference was the cast on and an extra knitted row. But the result was pretty much different to my eyes.

How to knit the flower:

Cast on 51stitches with long tail cast on (Danish article). I have cast on with two colors which gives a really nice edge.

To make a two colored long tail cast on, you need two colors of yarn  . The main color over the index finger and the edge color over the thumb. The slip knot at the beginning is made of both colors, so you can get a neat and tight beginning. At the end the slip knot is dropped, so don't count it in while casting on.
