Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2009: “Nicky Epstein hot-glued her felted roses, worked in ‘Cascade 220,’ to this ‘Tirup’ chair from Ikea, but it you prefer, you can fasten the blooms to the fabric with a curved upholstery needle and heavy-duty upholstery thread.”

“Knitted and felted flowers attached to purchased chair.”

  • One pair size 15 (10mm) needles or size to obtain gauge
