There are now three stitches left on the needles. cut your thread, and then thread this onto a darning needle. use the darning needle to go through the last three stitches and draw them tight. Knot and cut yarn.

Knit each row until you have a square. *About* 12 rows. Bind off, leaving a string about 8" long. Thread string through darning needle, and with a running stitch, go all the way around the square. Pull tight to form a 'ball'.

I sewed the flower together before felting. When it is felted, lay flat and shape.

Have fun!
