Teeny Tiny Knitted Flower Pattern

My sister has started making adorable hair bows recently. She's building up quite a stock, and she'll sell some Wednesday. We talked this morning about coming up with some knitted flowers to adorn the hair clippies. The problem with free patterns online is that they are intended for personal use only. Therefore, it would be a breech of the rules to use them for the clips she's selling. So I set to work creating a pattern of my own. And, in case you're wondering, I welcome you to use this pattern however you see fit. If you'd like to knit a handful of these and sell them at a craft fair, you have my full permission. And while we're on the topic, that goes for any and all patterns I share on this blog. If I have borrowed a pattern to reprint on this site, I've had permission to do so, and I will always indicate that. In that case, please refer to the author's rules. Anyway, enjoy, and please let me know if you make these or have any trouble or questions!

Size 0 needles, 4-ply yarn

CO 10 stitches
Turn and knit into the front and the back of the first two stitches.
*Leaving the remaining stitches on the needle, turn and purl 4.
Turn, and knit 3
Turn, and purl 3
Turn, and knit 3
Turn, and purl 2 together, purl 1
Turn, and knit 3.
Pass the second stitch over the first, and repeat. One stitch remaining on right needle.
Knit one, then knit into the front and the back of the next stitch. Repeat from * 4 times until one stitch is remaining. Pass the tail of the yarn through the stitch, and sew the ends together to create one round flower.

SO PERFECT! Won't they look precious with a little button center (or even a bling/rhinestone center) on some sweet ribbon...I can't wait!

This is lovely - I knit for Bonnie Babies (a charity that provides clothing for premature and 'born asleep' babies and the flowers would look lovely on the little blankets.

Thank you
