Cotton yarn flower

Cotton yarn flower



I must say, the technology invented myself. Rather, it is unlikely I invented the wheel, but making it in this form I somehow did not meet. So I’ll tell you how, and from what I did exactly what. Maybe it can be easier, more convenient, but I do so.

For dandelion we need remnants of cotton yarn:

  • Summer of Yarn Art yellow;
  • Original from Merve green.

Actually, I wanted to make of woolen threads. But those in the house was not there. And I realized that the Summer (or equivalent) is ideal because It has a separate viscose thread, and a flower looks interesting, “with the tide.”

In addition, you will need a fork for knitting (I have a 6 cm wide), not thick solid yellow thread (I c / b Lily YarnArt), thin needle, gypsy needle, PVA glue, knife, wire (for the stem and thinner – for leaf ).

Here are the threads



Take a fork and pulls on her yellow yarn.  


Gypsy with a needle and thread with a solid yellow line paving the middle, then back again. This is for convenience.  


Clay thick smear midline.  


Remove the cloth with his fork and twisting roller.


Then the thread tightly rewind the middle portion (about 1/3 of the total width). It turns out this yourself dumbbells)


On top again  glue and leave to dry.

After drying, take a knife and sawed “dumbbell” in the middle (“Saw weights, they gold” (c)))). So we got two flower-piece.


Scissors cut the loop “brushes”. Combing comb, scissors and attach the form again comb.


To take a green sepal yarn, cut into pieces of her length of 3-4 cm. 


Take a thin needle to pull out of the yarn and thread segments strung on a thread at a distance of approximately. 2/3 of the length of the petals.


Should get a track long enough to wrap her enough for our flower.


Scissors equate the upper edge. Do another line at a distance of half a centimeter from the first in the opposite direction.


Floret smeared with glue, take the track and turns her middle bottom part of the flower.


Firmly pressed, the thread on which are strung tight wrap on top.


The lower edge is clipped so that was enough to close the cut flower. On the slice thickly drip glue and pressed the tips. 


Allowed to dry.

To take the stem wire, lubricate it with glue and wrap the green yarn.


Tip to not unwound temporarily wrapped a thin thread. Here it is:


Give dry.

Gypsy in the center of the needle does sepal hole and glue insert stem. Sepal tips again smeared with glue and pressed, if they have fallen behind.


We give our final dry flowers …

Type of flower can be varied – from large to small and even to bud. You can take the fork of a different size, you can wrap the thread is wider in the middle, you can just have a finished flower petals larger crop)). A bud petals shorter, but longer than the petals sepal.

Well, the flowers attached to the leaf.

Leaf knit from the same green yarn, just remove it from the 3 strands of 7 Hook 1.75.

Leaves also can link different size by changing the number of columns 

At the beginning of the long tail leaves enough threads to wrap her stalk of a leaf.

When knitting the second row along the chain are paving the wire and tied her columns . Knitting scheme mate leaf, thread breaks, from the base of the leaf .

By linking the leaf, smear glue and wire wrapped her left first thread.

That FSE! Admiring his work!
