knitted/felt rosette? EDIT: ANSWER FOUND!

i love this community...

yesterday (after my last final!) i was browsing through the urban outfitters holiday 03 issue, and i found a felt scarf that fastened beneath a felt rosette. and then i started wondering...since it's possible to crochet a rosette, shouldn't it also be possible to knit one? i searched for instructions online and couldn't seem to find anything.

does anyone have a pattern for knitting a rosette? or, if not, can anyone guide me in making a felt one? it would beautify my holiday knitting projects even more...

i pray for peace for any students finishing up the semester lately...thank you for sharing your craftiness, lovely ladies.

edit!: just randomly browsing knitty for holiday projects, i totally found knit rosette patterns. they are at the bottom of this page. !!

i saw that in the catalog too and love it. do you think you could cut it out of knit fabric and stiffin it somehow?

I don't know if this is the kind of felt rosette you are looking for, but here is one I made for a poncho last night:

Basically, I cut 5 circles of wool the same size, sewed the edges, put one on top of the other, and stuck a pin straight through near the edge. Then I just shifted the petals around the pin until I thought they looked nice. Then I sewed a button where the straight pin had been. Voila! I put some Mod Podge on the back to stiffen it up, and then stuck a safety pin on the back. Hope this helps.

The new Knitty has a pattern for a sweater with lots of rosettes around the collar. Check there!

im reading the rose instructions and i realized i have no idea what they mean by

"Row 3: Knit into the front & back of every stitch."

how does one go about knitting the front and back of every stitch? is it something simple?

knitting into the back and front of a stitch is a fairly simple way to increase your knitting. i find it a little bit tricky, but it's not too hard to catch on to. the instructions at stitchguide (click here) should help you out a lot. :)
