Knitting Newborn Baby Hats... DIY Roses

Another batch of newborn hats ready to go into work!  I've been doing lots of roses & bows lately.

How to knit a rose:

Cast on 10 stitches, leaving long end of leftover yarn.
Row 1:  Knit.
Row 2 & all even rows:  Purl.
Row 3:  Yarn over each stitch to make 20.
Row 5:  Yarn over all stitches - 40 stitches.
Row 7:  Yarn over all stitches - 80 stitches.
Row 9:  Cast off all stitches, this will start curling.

Using leftover ends of yarn, secure with a darning needle.
