Briefly I believed I had made a brand new knitting pattern. But then I realised that the only difference was the cast on and an extra knitted row. But the result was pretty much different to my eyes.
How to knit the flower:
Cast on 51stitches with long tail cast on (Danish article). I have cast on with two colors which gives a really nice edge.
To make a two colored long tail cast on, you need two colors of yarn . The main color over the index finger and the edge color over the thumb. The slip knot at the beginning is made of both colors, so you can get a neat and tight beginning. At the end the slip knot is dropped, so don't count it in while casting on.
Knit 5 rows of stockinette stitch. When casting on with long tail cast on remember to begin with a purl row.
Knit 1. *Bind off 9 stitches, knit 1. Repeat from * to the end.
Break the yarn, leaving an end long enough for weaving. 30 cm will be plenty. Use a tapestry needle to lead the yarn end through the rest og the stitches.
To get the flower nice and tight, weave along the middle as shown at the image below.
Weave in ends.
The flower is just as pretty without the two colored cast on.

I think the differens on the two flowers lies in the long tail cast on and the extra row knitted on that behalf? I'm not sure - but different they look...
