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.
