Knitted flower motifs

Hi there all,

I want to knit a jumper for my daughter, I’ve got the rest of it all worked out but I want to knit in a flower on the front, a tulip if I can find one, I can find plenty of patterns for flowers I could applique on but I want to knit it right in rather that attach it later, does anyone have any ideas? There is a lovely rose ddishcloth that I saw in this forum somewhere but it goes across instead of up and down if you get what I mean! Also I want it to be quite lacy

any help would be really appreciated!
