This is a superb book that any knitter should welcome.
Lynne E.
The book starts with a brief botany lesson on the parts of flowers, and the patterns then show you how to create knit flowers in incredible detail.

It just makes me happy to look at all these lovely flowers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For years, I've been buying individual Noni bag patterns, just to get the directions for the gorgeous, realistic, decorative felted flowers. And now, at long last, Noni creative designer Nora Bellows has published this fabulous book, NONI FLOWERS, which includes instructions for 40 different Noni flowers. The flower patterns range from Sunflower and Dahlia through Pansy and Orange Blossom; the book also includes six lovely, well-worth-knitting, project patterns (May Violets Fingerless Gloves, Forget-Me-Not Pillow, Sunflower Infinity Wrap, Gossamer Fuchsia Wrap, Cherry Blossom Pauper's Purse, and Creeping Phlox Garden Clutch).

For the technically inclined knitter, NONI FLOWERS has a wonderful two-page illustration of how one flower pattern will look when knit with 12 different yarns and gauges. The tiniest flower, knit with silk yarn on six-0 (.7mm) needles, is 3/8" high; the largest flower, knit with merino top on US 50 needles, is 8-1/4" high. All of the flowers can be knit at any gauge, because the instructions are given in rounds and rows (no charts). The flowers can be felted, or not. Felting will make the knitted stitches more dense, but will not dramatically shrink the flower size.

Another beautiful two-page spread explains the anatomy of a knitted flower, and indicates the various small flower parts by their Latin names (the Latin names are used for the parts in the instructions). There are directions, illustrated with close-up photos, for special techniques, such as knitting with multiple colors in a single round, wiring stems and blossoms, or weaving in ends so that the flowers will not be marred by errant, poking-out ends.

I got Nonis book with flowers just yesterday, I am a late starter, and I love it!
Her designs have been favourites of mine for a long time. She has the eye for this, to combine materials and colours to make the experience of her designs so much more.
In her book Knitted flowers, I especially like that the flowers shown in the book are both just knitted and also felted. This gives the designs another dimention.
The technique pages in the beginning of the book are really instructive. There is even a page showing me the Anatomy of a Knitted Flower. Fantastic! The skill levels varies so that there are flowers for everyone to knit, if you are a beginner or one who have been knitting all your life.
When I slowly turn the pages of the book, I see the pictures first, the flowers in their natural colours. I want to knit them all, now! Then I read the patterns. The instructions are clear and easy to understand.

Format: Paperback
This is a gorgeous book. It just makes me happy to look at all these lovely flowers. They look natural, almost real. I also crochet and think these are the most realistic ones I've come across, crochet or knitting. They are truly works of art.

The book itself stays open pretty well and is of good quality. It should last a long time, long enough to make all these lovely flowers. The patterns are clear and detailed, ranging in difficulty for all knitter's abilities. The photography shows each type of flower in a natural setting of stems and leaves (along with some other displays). The leaves in these pics are genuine so that does add to the believability. I can just imagine plucking a flower off the stem, making a beautiful brooch, and having someone ask, "Is it real?"

One of my favorite parts of the book is where the author shows scale and how changing yarn and/or needles will greatly change the final product. I had never seen it shown with such impact. I am going to always check my gauge from now on.

There are 6 projects in the book. They are:

May Flowers Fingerless Gloves
Forget-me-not Pillow
Sunflower Infinity Wrap
Gossamer Fuschia Wrap
Cherry Blossom Pauper's Purse
Creeping Phlox Garden Clutch

They are all lovely, but that Fuschia Wrap is so sweet with the fuschias hanging down from the wrap (more like a thin, wide scarf) just like they do in a big potted hanging plant.

So, if you want to make some works of art of your own, then I would definitely recommend buying this book.

Format: Paperback
This IS my favorite knitting book and I must have 30 or more! The illustrations are STUNNING!! This alone makes you want to knit each and every flower in this book and place them into the most beautiful crystal vase you have and place it in the center of your home. And every person that walks into your home will open their eyes wide and say "That has got to be the most engaging and unbelivably gorgeous bouquet of flowers I've ever seen!" The book alone should not be put away. It is a lovely conversation piece that should be set on your coffee table amongst a candle or two and enjoyed every day. There are also projects that include the flowers at the end of the book which I plan on knitting each of them. They are all usable and beautiful. There are a couple of handbags, a shawl, a pillow and more. This book is a MUST HAVE for ALL knitters. You will not be disappointed. But you will be if you do not get a copy! Treat yourself to something beautiful!!
