For some reason, the face looks like Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. However, this adorable little rose is much more delicate, and is the perfect way to spend your Valentine’s Day with a little self-love. The designer recommends Knit Picks Palette yarn in red and green, but of course the colours are up to your own artistic impression! A HiyaHiya Sharp Double-Pointed Needle with a 2.25mm tip would be the perfect tool to begin your new romance.
Not to condone this sentiment, but if you’re feeling particularly romantic this year, then you can put your little flower groot in a small gift-box. HiyaHiya Europe is not responsible for your partners reaction should you attempt this gesture, so proceed with caution. You can also knit up a bouquet in a rainbow of colours for someone special, your only boundary is your own creativity.
