This is a simple Flower embellishment that can be added to bring a little Spring time to any material or knit!

To Start- you want to choose two similar colors in different hues like this flower that is made with a reddish orange and an orange colored yarn. Use the more subtle color of the two for the base stitching. Stitch large stitches in a donut shape to lay out the initial design---focus on large stitches. Don't pull these stitches too tight for you want them to stretch along with the knitted fabric.

Once you have laid out your initial shape, switch to the more dramatic color (darker) and begin stitching petals to your flower. The petals are stitched using a large chain stitch over the subtle base stitching. Don't over do the chainstitches---you don't want to completely obscure your foundation stitching, just enhance it. In addition, you want these petals to extend out past the base stitches so they pop a bit. Again, don't pull these stitches too tight. You may want to briefly wash your fabric when you are done to felt it enough to adhere the embellished stitching to the knitted fabric underneath.
