6 Petal Knit Flower Free Pattern

Not too long ago, I shared my crochet flower patterns. Now, for all you knitters, I have a sweet little 6 petal flower pattern! 

  • Sport weight yarn
  • Size 5 knitting needles 
  • Tapestry needle
  • Coordinating thread
  • Bead or button for flower center
  • You are welcome to make and sell products from this pattern but please link back to this post. Please do not copy this pattern and claim it as your own. Please do not republish any of my photos as your own.
  • This flower is about 4 inches across
Pattern for Petals: (Make 6)

CO 5
Row 1: P across
Row 2: K1, *m1, k1* repeat from * to * across
Rows 3-11: Stockinette
Row 12: K2, ssk, k1, k2tog, k2
Row 13: P across
Row 14: K2, ssk, k1, k2tog, k1
Row 15: P
Row 16: K1, k3tog, k1
Bind off

To finish, sew in all loose ends. Hold all six petals together by pinching the centers in one hand. Using a strand of coordinating thread, sew the petals together and attach button. I recommend blocking lightly because the edges of the petals tend to curl. 

Next week I'll share the project I embellished with this flower!

  1. Love your pattern but please explain what row 2 m1 and row 12 ssk mean

  2. M1 means make 1 stitch between the stitch you just knitted and the next stitch you're going to knit. SSK means slip 1 stitch as if to knit, slip the next stitch as it to knit and then knit them together, decreasing a stitch

  3. You little beauty, just what I was looking for - honestly. Thank you so much. I am knitting headbands and this flower will be perfect. I am not selling anything with this flower embellishment, but I will give credit to you if I decide to do so. Hope this is ok with you. Marian

  4. What a beutiful flower I made a icord stem for it and added it to my wedding bouquet thank you
