I knitted this flower on my Brother Bulky Machine only because that was the machine I was working on before I tried this flower. It helped that it was larger to see what I was doing. It is made from fisherman’s wool. The pattern is in Hand Manipulated Stitches for Machine Knitters by Susan Guagliumi. This can be made on any machine. I backstitched around each of the petals in darker color and then I put about 4 or 5 french knots in the center. In the flowers in the picture below I knitted the centers starting on 3 stitches , increasing to 5 and then decreasing to 3 stitches .
