How to Knit ROSE FLOWERS | Summer Knit Series


How to Knit a ROSE Flower! Hi, Guys, I’m Kristen and Welcome to Studio
Knit! Mother’s Day is upon us, and I thought it would be really fun to knit her up some
beautiful ROSES. Perfect all year round and great as embellishments on lots of fashions
and home décor. Oh, this Knitted Rose video was suggested
by a Studio Knit subscriber! So, please comment to give me ideas of what you would like to
see next and hit LIKE if you would like to see more Knitted Flower videos like this. For our materials, we will use any weight
yarn and the appropriate sized knitting needles, Scissors, and a tapestry needle. Your color
choice is TOTALLY OPTIONAL. So, to begin, we are going to CAST ON six
stitches. Once we have cast on our six stitches, we are going to simply knit those six stitches
on Row One. Next, we are going to do a Knit One and then a YARN OVER. Now, this yarn over
goes clock-wise around your needle. It’s an increase. So the yarn just stays there. And
then you knit one again and yarn over, and keep doing this on row two until you get to
the very last stitch, which is simply knit one. So, with your increases, you now have
eleven stitches on your needle. Now, for yarn overs, the yarn over part is pretty easy.
It’s knitting the next row after the yarn over that can be a little tricky. So, I’d
say, take your time and pay attention to which was the just the regular knit, right here
was the regular knit stitch, and that yarn over stitch is sort of at a diagonal there
in the back. So, now we are going to increase again from eleven to twenty one stitches in
the exactly same thing. So, we are knitting and doing yarn over, and then on row five,
we are going to again, just knit those twenty one stitches and again take your time. Oh,
it looks so pretty. Here we are on row six, we are going to continue in the same way.
We are going to knit one and yarn over. Knit one, yarn over, until we get to that last
stitch, which is just a knit one. Okay, row seven, we are going to knit those forty one
stitches that just created with our increases. So, we are just knitting all the way across
the row. Now, it is our last increase row. Row eight, we are going to knit and yarn over,
knit and yarn over and this is going to take some time. We are going from forty one stitches
all the way to eighty one stitches. This is why I like to use longer needles, so you might
want to keep that in mind when you’re picking out your knitting needles that you’ll use.
And again, on row nine, we are just knitting all the way across and definitely take your
time, because those yarn overs can be a little tricky to knit. Okay, here we are with our
eighty one stitches and if you would like to make a special color edging like this right
here, then just switch your yarn color for your bind off. So, this is our bind off row,
And just knit tow, and then we just take that one stitch and pass it over and continue this
bind-off method all the way down our row. And you’ll see as we bind off, our row starts
to take shape by sort of curling in as we are binding off. So here we are at the very
end, just pass that stitch over, and taking our tapestry needle, we just go ahead and
weave that yarn end through. And let’s take a look. That’s our six stitches right there,
where we started and look it’s sort of like a coil shape. Really cool. Kind of like a
rounded coil. Then, we are just going to take one of our ends and start to curl it into
our ROSE shape. What I really like to do is have the outside edges a little bit taller
than the inside of my ROSE to create my rose shape. You know, all flowers are different.
So however you chose to do it will be beautiful, as well. Now, again, using your tapestry needle,
on the end we will just lightly tack our rose together. Now, depending on what you’re using
your Rose for, if it’s not getting a lot of wear and tear, you can tack it really lightly.
If you’re going to, say, put it on something like a pillow, then where it will get jostled
around a lot then you might want to tack it a little bit more securely. And then I like
to take this yarn end down to the bottom of our flower, where we have that other yarn
end and then all we have to do is tie them together. And I’m just going to tie twice
so that they are secure. And then I’m just going to cut my yarn ends. So beautiful. I hope you are inspired to knit a rose of your own. Thank you so much for watching Studio Knit!
