How to knit flowers

Knitted flower

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.
