Here's a link
http://www.thedietdiary.com/knittingfiend/Hats/NewsBoy.html

Although it's being modelled by a teddy bear and a doll, the site has a pattern generator so you can knit the right size. I made this for a friend who was undergoing chemo a while ago - I was pleased with how it turned out.

Best wishes
Val

Have a look at this PDF file - on Page 5 it gives a description of the needle positions. There's lots of other info which you may find useful as well.

That is so cool that you can do it with a machine or by hand...you enter the head measurement and the gauge and it generates the pattern to match those parimeters. How does she doe that? Joan8060

What kind is your orchid...beautiful. My B. Lady of the Night is blooming for the first time in the 3 1/2 years I have had her. My Fragmapedium just finished her breathtaking blooming spell. Aren't they fun!

Oh you did make me laugh so much. But to be fair, the photo is small and hard to see.

I knitted it! ... on my Brother standard gauge machine. Made it up as I went. Knitted the white petals by casting on a long row, then divided up into 6 sections and knitted each section down to a point to form a triangle - then gathered.

The yellow centre was just a rectangle which I mattress stitched to form a tube. I crocheted the red edge.

The stem is an i-cord.

I used fine garden wire to give support to the stem and to give shape the yellow trumpet.

I photographed it in my garden in the late afternoon sun to make it look more realistic.

I've downloaded the original pic so you can see more easily.

Thank you for cheering up my morning!

Best wishes
Val

I'm sorry but I don't have a pattern - I made it up as I went along.

See my earlier post where I talk about making the white petals and the yellow trumpet and i-cord for the stem.

Have a go ... and with a bit of imagination, magic happens!

Best wishes

I've just found this link for machine knitted flowers patterns. 5 USD seems quite reasonable to me.

http://www.mkdesigner.com/stitchnstarchpatterns.html

I've just ordered the machine knitted starched baskets patterns; they really look cute!

There's a free mini basket pattern to download on this site
