Knitted Flower Brooches

A couple of knitted flower brooches I've just finished.

I knitted this one in aran wool, and the stamens in double knitting wool, the pattern is by Lucinda Ganderton and was in Let's get Crafting magazine.

This one was knit in Sirdar Cossack chunky wool for the main flower, and Hayfield Grampian chunky for the leaves.

I'd like to enter these into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T - their theme this week is Gardening.

Allsorts Challenge - Free & Easy
