Knitting pattern for pansy hanging basket.
I hope you enjoy knitting these pretty flowers and arranging your display. The many advantages of having knitted flowers, of course, is that you don’t have to water them and they don’t’ wilt!
This was a joy to design, I loved every minute, and there will be more Funky Flowers to come ......
The pattern has instructions for knitting the flowers and leaves and how to wire them for the arrangement. This is a great yarn buster project to use all those lovely small quantities of yarn you have left over. I have filled a 25 cm (10 inches) diameter container, but you could use a smaller or larger one, just knit fewer or more flowers and leaves.
