20" spool knitted cord
Tapestry Needle


Make a 20" long spool knitted cord. Leave the long tails of yarn attached to the cord. These tails will be used to sew the flower pedals together.

Since the flower will have five petals, divide the cord into 5 equal sections using a straight pin or safety pin to mark the sections.

Spool Knitted Flower

Thread a tapestry needle with one of the yarn tails.

Inset the needle into the cording at the first pin closest to the tail. Pull the yarn thorough forming the first petal. Make a few more stitches to keep the petal secure.

Continue forming petals by pinching cord at each pin and making a few stitches through both pinched layers.

Fasten the tails by tying a knot in the back.
