Size: after felting, flower is about 8 cm/3” diameter and leave 14 cm/5,5” across.
Wool: Plötulopi by ístex, 100% new wool, about 110g/plate, 100g = ca. 300m/328 yds: colors of your choice but note that the blue color stops the light so any color with some blue in it (including greens and purples) are not recommended for the flower itself but you can use them all in the leaves. Each flower/leave uses about 8 g (24m/26 yds)
If you use another yarn, make sure it’s pure wool and felts easily (not superwash!).
Needles: 5,5 mm / US 9 circ needle. Magic loop is used but you can also use DPN’s.
Gauge: 10 cm/4” = 14 sts with plötulopi held double. Gauge is not important.
