Hi there & welcome to Annie's Place. A place inspired by and named after my late Grandmother Annie. Somewhere I can be creative, and share my love for all things handmade. I like nothing better than sitting with hook & yarn, crafting something home spun & completely unique, or rustling up some yummy baked goodies. I live in a town with a beautiful embankment, situated on the River Great Ouse. You may know me as CosyKitty on Ravelry. Why not stop a while.....?!!

Maisie Flower How-To

After receiving so many wonderful comments about my 'Maisie Flower', I decided to waste no time in sharing this pattern with you. I'm really hoping it all makes sense and that the pictorial guide gives you more help than just words. I'm sure most of you would be able to interpret this pattern from the visuals alone, but the added written instructions on each photo should make it much clearer for those who are a bit less confident. 

I've tried my very best to make this as 
easy to follow as possible, but should 
you find any mistakes please let me know. 
I'm learning too, so please be gentle! x

Just click on the images for a more detailed view.

I really hope you enjoy this tutorial, 
as much as I enjoyed making it for you?!!




Bye for now

  51. I to would like to know what thread you used and needle..please.. I love your tutorial.. I tried it with crocheting thread and size 7/1.needle..it's okay but in the middle it wants to stick up.. but your thread looks like yarn...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Muchas gracias por el tutorial...es muy interesante y esra muy bien explicado. Un trabajo muy bonito.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi, your work are so beautifully and well created. Youre such a generous person to share your talent. For beginner like me, I would like to seek advice from you what kind of thread and hook shall I use? And also the brand of the thread. I really like to learn. Pls help me. Thank you so much. God bless!

    1. Thank you for being so kind Agnes. I favour a 3.5mm hook for most of my work, and I used this size for the Maisie Flower. I used a cotton yarn purchased from here; http://www.handarbeitswaren.de/Schachenmayr-Wolle/Catania-Schachenmayr.html. Although there are many 100% cotton yarns available on the market that would also suit. Something that's quite fine and smooth would be preferable. Hope this helps you get started :)

    2. May I please know if thread will work as well and also what diameter the finished product has with the yarn you used?

  68. I have noticed that you made another of your patterns into a block. Can you do this with your Maisie flower? I just love it!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Absolutely love your Maisie flower. I notice from the comments, however, that you haven't been so kind as to let us know what type of yarn you are using. The colors are incredible and I can find nothing here in the states that compares. Please consider letting us know so we can duplicate your beautiful work. I will always give you the credit, I promise you.
