Knitting pattern for colourful dahlias in a pot. I hope you enjoy knitting these pretty dahlias and arranging your display. The many advantages of having knitted flowers, of course, is that you don’t have to water them and they don’t’ wilt!

This knitted flower arrangement will look stunning on a patio and perfect for a gift for someone special or, of course, to keep for yourself.

The pattern has instructions for knitting the flowers and leaves and how to assemble your arrangement
