Step 1: Insert needle up through flower, just outside of center. Step 2: Insert needle down through flower about 1/4 inch from step 1 and up about 1/8 inch to the left, creating a bar. Step 3: Bring the needle from right to left underneath the bar, but not through the flower, keeping the yarn under the needle. Step 4: Repeat step 3 two more times. Insert needle back down through flower. Weave in ends.
Step 1: Insert needle up through mitt just under flower. Step 2: Insert needle down, then up, working each stroke about 1/2 inch apart to create lower branch.
Step 3: For 2-branch stems: Insert needle down through same hole as down stroke in step 2 and up to the left on an upward diagonal. For 3-branch stems: Insert needle down through mitt again 1/2 inch away to create top branch, and up to the left on a downward diagonal. Step 4: Insert needle down through bottom of top branch and out to the right on an upward diagonal. Step 5: Insert needle down through base of top branch. For 3-branch stems, come up through same hole as down stroke in step 2. For 2-branch stems, weave in ends. Steps 6–8 (3-branch only): Repeat steps 3 and 4 for middle branch. Repeat step 5, ending with instructions for 2-branch stem.
Step 1: Insert needle up through piece. Step 2: Bring the needle down into same knit stitch as step 1 and up a few knit stitches away, keeping the yarn under the needle. Step 3: Pull yarn through creating surface loop. It is important to strand yarn loosely to avoid pulling on fabric. If making a single chain stitch, skip to step 4. If making a line of chains, repeat steps 2 and 3 as indicated in pattern. Step 4: Insert needle back down through fabric, just outside of last loop. Weave in ends.
