No Watering, No Wilting! 7 Bright and Beautiful Knit Flowers

As summer comes to a close, I'm desperately trying to enjoy the last of the colorful flowers growing outside my door. But even when summer starts to fade, I'll still be able to enjoy a splash of color thanks to a bouquet of bright knit flowers!

Knitted flowers are ideal for displaying all year long because they never wilt or need water. (If you have a black thumb like me, those are two huge advantages.) Whether your favorite flower is a poppy or a rose, there's no shortage of knit flower patterns to choose from here on Bluprint.

Turn these knit flowers into bouquets for home decor, or attach them to sweaters, totes and accessories for an extra embellishment. We definitely encourage mixing and matching!

2. Simple Knit Flower

Knit this pretty flower in one piece with any scrap yarn you choose. For smaller flowers, use fingering-weight yarn and small needles; for larger blooms, go for heavier weights and bigger needles. There are plenty of other ways to customize the flower, like adding a cluster of beads to center instead of a button.

This flower is destined for your work desk or window sill. The instructions to make the pot with dirt are also included, but skip it if you plan to knit multiple flowers and place them in a vase instead.
