Knitted Poinsettia is an original knitting pattern by June Gilbank.
This decorative poinsettia is knitted flat using only basic stitches, so even a beginner at knitting can tackle it. The poinsettia is about 3.5″ (9cm) in diameter, and would make a lovely tree ornament, or a pretty table decoration, gift topper, or brooch.
Yarn: small quantity of worsted weight yarn in red, green and yellow
Needles: 4 US/ 3.5mm knitting needles (straight, circular or DPNs will all work equally well)
Size: approx 3.5" (9cm) diameter.
(Your gauge and yarn choice will affect the finished size slightly.)
