Introducing the Floral Wrist Corsage. The five-petal flower is knit flat and the yarn is woven through the flower to create the petals and center of the flower. The bracelet is knit separately in a slip-stitch pattern. The flower is attached once the bracelet has been sewn together and blocked. 

I chose to knit the project using Qina by Mirasol yarns which is a worsted-weight yarn made from a blend of alpaca and bamboo yarn making the finished project incredibly soft.  Alpaca and bamboo yarns are naturally hypo-allergenic fibers which means that people with sensitivities can wear these fibers next to their skin.  
  • Makes a great accessory for weddings and proms.  Choose a yarn color that is featured at the event or select a color to compliment any outfit.
  • The bracelet can be made to fit any wrist size. Just take your wrist measurement and subtract 1.5 cm (1/2”) from the length.  The negative ease will help it stay in place on your wrist.
  • Sewing beads or pearls in the center of the flower will add some drama and sparkle.
The pattern is available through Ravelry, Craftsy and Etsy.
