I don't want to go over the top with knitted nick knacks at the wedding. I also don't want to drive myself insane to finish a bunch of labor-intensive projects that I can never finish. But I DO want to have something knitted to add a little touch of me and my interests. Enter bouquet wrap, stage left:
Seriously, how cute is this? It's barely noticeable, but really personal. It could be understated, like hear in the cream, but it could be more of a statement by contrasting with the flowers.
From a practical standpoint, it's a rectangle. This one looks like it was cut from a larger knitted piece and appears unfinished at the edges. But I couldn't stand for that.
Knitting this in the round would require fitting it to the bouquet, and thus knowing how big it would be. Too much work.
I imagine this look would be easiest to achieve by having fake buttons and using velcro. The buttons could be a way to further personalize if I got my hands on some garment from a family member (Mom's wedding dress buttons? Buttons from any shirt of any grandparent?)
About the velcro: normally velcro would ruin the yarn, but I don't exactly think I'd ever use it again.
