If you want to jazz up a coat or blazer this season, here’s a fast little pattern you can work up with some leftover scraps from your yarn basket. I love putting these on kid’s hats, but here is a way to incorporate them into your wardrobe too!
Note: 2 brooches are shown in the picture and pinned side by side.
- US 10.5 needles are used for the rosettes shown, but with this pattern it’s really fun to experiment with different yarn weights and needle sizes.
- Yarn scraps (a few yards is all you’ll need)
- Pin backing (I use safety pins so that I can remove them later and sew them to something else if I like. If you want a more permanent pin backing, you can find pin backings in the jewelry aisle of the craft store and stitch them on)
- Tapestry needle (for weaving in ends and sewing them together)
