Loving how easy it is to Knit Rose Flowers! This quick knit project is perfect for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and all year round.  They make great embellishments on cute fashions and longlasting home décor. We simply knit up a swatch in 9 easy rows, then shape it into a rose flower. Quickly knit them up in different sizes with any yarn gauge and fiber using appropriately sized knitting needles of your choice. Selecting your favorite colors will bring your bouquet to life!
