I'm demonstrating/teaching knitting flowers later this year, so I've been working on simple patterns to use (much easier than getting permission from designers to use and teach their designs).
I've got a few up my sleeve so far, but so far this is the only one I've tested. So, I'm releasing it to the world!
If you would like to knit a very simple flower and leaf, you can download my pattern in PDF format, here or at Ravelry.
Any questions, let me know!
