These yarn wildflowers are all designed to be quick and easy to learn and to make, but we have ranked them from most simple to slightly more tricky.
You will need yarn, cardboard, scissors, a ruler/tape measure and a needle (with a big eye for yarn).
The basic flower head. Small and quick. Involves winding, knotting and a couple of stitches.
The basic small flower head. Slightly more tricky because you have to be gentle with your decoration.
The basic flower head but bigger and with two different widths to stitch together.
Little bit more fiddly as you attach a bud-sepal and do some wool cutting – but nothing you can’t handle!
