Scraps of wool
Crochet hook or knitting needle
Using wool that you wish to have as the petals, leave a small length which will be used for securing off later and begin winding it around your flower loom. Most looms should come with a set of their own instructions which are not really very inspiring, but if not, then wind the wool in a figure of 8 using the pegs that line opposite each other. At the same time move in a clockwise direction.
Do make sure that the wool does cross in the middle of the loom as it gives a more stable flower when it is taken off the loom.
For this flower I went round 6 times, so that there are 6 loops on each peg. I then tied it off at the back with the tail that I left at the beginning.
Next, using a contrast colour, thread a needle and bring this up from the back of the loom.
Secure the contrast colour on the back of the loom.
I then decided to stitch another row but going through the middle of each pink loop and skipping to the centre of the next one as shown in the picture.
You can stop here but I like to secure the centre of the flower so that it could be attached to a brooch pin or stitched onto another project.
So taking another piece of wool I stitched from the centre out towards the purple stitching which formed a rough star shape. Next, take your crochet hook or knitting needle etc, and use this to ease your flower off the loom.
At this point you can add additional pieces such as buttons, beads or more stitching.
The loops of the flower can then be teased apart to show all of the layers.
You can use a variety of materials to make flowers like this, ribbon is a pretty good one to try. Or make them with different coloured layers of wool as you create the loops. Then stitch them on to your next project.
