Knitting pattern for a Bucketful of Roses

I hope you enjoy knitting these pretty roses and rose buds and arranging your display. The many advantages of having knitted flowers, of course, is that you don’t have to water them and they stay fresh and colourful all year round!

This would make a lovely handmade gift for someone special or you might even want to keep them for yourself.

The pattern has instructions for knitting the roses and leaves and how to arrange the display.
