Flower Stitch Knitting Pattern

This flower stitch is such a lovely pattern.  I first knitted this flower in a blanket and a hat as a baby gift for my friend.  I didn't get a chance to put in together a knitting pattern for them.  Once of these days I will though.  

This flower knitting pattern has a few rows that little tough to manage.  You can watch my video below to see how I manipulate the stitches on the flower row 2 and 3. The rest of them are just knit and purl pretty much.  I hope you will give it a try.

I think these flowers look great on a Lower border of a little girl's skirt or summer top.  

Here is a Flower Stitch Knitting Pattern Instruction


Cast on a multiple of 6 + 1.

Knit in stockinette stitch (k on the right side, p on the wrong side) as many rows of the background color yarn as you like. Recommend 6-10 rows. Ending with a wrong side row.

Change to different color yarn and begin flower stitch pattern as follows;

Row 1 (right side): Knit.

Row 2: (wrong side): k1, k5 and at the same time wrapping yarn around the right needle 3 times per each stitch, k1.

Row 3: *P1, yarn to back of work (yb), slip 5 and unravel all the wraps, [yarn to front of work (yf), transfer sts back to left needle, yb, transfer sts back to right needle] twice; repeat from * to the last st, yf, p1.

Row 4: Knit. Change back to the background color and knit stockinette sts for 6-10 rows.

You can try playing around with flowers and background colors.  There are so many possibilities.  Enjoy!
