In case you missed the free project I posted yesterday on my newspaper blog, I wanted make it available here, too, so all you knitters living outside of West Michigan get a fair chance to try out Ruth Boelkins’ free nonstop knits pattern for felted roses. These roses can be used as lapel pins or classic embellishments for hats, purses and whatever else you’d like to make fancy. Download the the pdf of Ruth’s Rose pattern and give it a whirl.
Ruth is a fellow West Michigan knitter. You can read her story on my newspaper blog and check out her patterns and purses for sale in her etsy shop. Her patterns are also available at Country Needleworks, 584 Chicago Drive, Jenison, Mich.
