Free knitting pattern: Camilla’s knitted flowers

Our free knitting classes on Yarn Shop Day were a huge success! We thought we’d share our patterns on The Daily Stitch for everyone who was unable to make it on the day. These sweet patterns were designed by our knitting teacher, Camilla Miller, can be used to make hair clips and broaches or as embellishments on hair bands, waistbands, necklaces and more!
