Rosettes on a Flower Loom: An Easy Craft Project

Earlier this summer, I was at Potter Craft's offices--and since we were all crafters--we took some time after lunch to try a few craft projects from the upcoming book, Martha Stewart's Handmade Holiday Crafts (available this fall). One of the projects was rosettes, which we made with LB Collection Silk Mohair and a Knifty Knitter 4 1/2 Inch Flower Loom. Simply by wrapping the yarn from peg to opposite peg and rotating the loom, we were able to create these fun flowers that could be used as a brooch, part of a headband, a gift topper...the sky's the limit! It's a fun and customizable idea that would be fun to make as wedding favors or at kids' birthday parties, baby showers, and more!

Plus let's just say that this project may give you a hint of something to come later this summer...stay tuned for more soon!

    I remember making flowers on a loom similar to this way back in the 70's. Ya know, the Flower Power days. We used them in home ec. class and used them on a huge burlap-backed mural we made for the classroom. I believe there was a lot of orange, gold and avocado green involved. LOL!

    That looks like fun -- very different than most yarn flowers!
