How to Make a Yarn Flower with a Fork – Weaving and Embroidery Crafts

Hey I’m Sarah Wolfe from Today I’ll show you how to make a flower with a fork. To do this I’m
using some Red Heart yarn, and a dinner fork. Hold the fork like this. Place the
yarn in the front and wrap it once completely around the bottom prong, also
known as the tine. Wrap the yarn this way around the last prong. Now weave the yarn in an opposite manner back the other way. It is so important to do this loosely. If
you weave it too tight you won’t be able to do the second part. When you get to
this last tine, wrap around and begin the next row. Each row will be the opposite
of what you did before. Be sure to wrap that last yarn around
the tine. You’ll want to stop when you have ten
loops on the bottom and ten loops at the top. Your yarn should end on the opposite
end of the fork. Cut the yarn about 18 inches from the fork. And then thread a
yarn needle. On the side we ended we’re going to need to draw this yarn through
all of these loops. Insert the needle under then pull it through. Now insert under a few more loops and
pull through. If you can do this in one pass that’s great. But I find it’s easier to
do just a few at a time. Once you’ve gone through all these loops move on to the
next tine. Insert your needle underneath the loops
on this tine. You can either do them all at once or take a few at a time and pull
through. Tie and knot the two ends together. Leave this long tail end and set this
petal aside. Make four more petals just like this using a new yarn from the yarn
skein. Now go back to your first petal and using the long yarn, sew this petal on. After you’ve finished with all five
petals make a few extra stitches to connect the flower. Then I like to sew or
glue on a button to kind of hide the center part. And that’s how I make a
flower with a fork.
