Fuchsia Flower Pen Top




I saw a cute idea in Craftseller this month. Crocheted daisy pen tops. I would have made them but my crochet is still very basic. I'm taking lessons so maybe soon. Anyway I thought I'd try knitting some. I made a bunch of fuchsia flowers for a knitted garden a few years ago so I thought I'd start with one of those. Be warned though it had a horrible number of ends to run in!The pattern is here if you want to make one.
