This is a great collection of knitted flowers. I have never attempted to knit flowers before. I have always crocheted them in the past, but this is a new and challenging project so I am ready to attempt a couple of the ones I see on here. They look very cute and easy.

where is the pattern for the flower on the cover?

Hi Jacob, the pattern can be found by clicking the image. Here's the link: https://www.allfreeknitting.com/Dish/flower-hotpad. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I can not seem to get the page with the brown scarf with leaves and flowers to load. I guess it is the leaf and flower scarf and that link seems broken. Does anyone have the pattern or ? Thanks. I like the way it is so contrasting. I have never tried my hand at flowers. Thanks.

Hello Grace333! Unfortunately, that pattern is no longer available. We have updated the page accordingly. Sorry for the inconvenience. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Well darn it! I guess I will give the others a go. I was thinking of adding these to some of the older baby blankets I have done that are sort of plain. Even to some of the hats would be something to put on and then remove or even change with just tacking them on. Sure with the other was available. It was really great. Thanks for checking.

There is a veritable garden of blooms found in these knitting patterns. I visualize a cluster on a sweet little hat or a few blossoms scattered across a little girl's sweater. They could be used on a headband too or even a decorative pillow.

Even though I have not knitted it yet, I think the design is beautiful but better used in a spa instead of doing dishes. Ann Eaton

love the patterns, have tried out a few with mixed success! ended up creating my own lily pattern which can be found for free here http://hopeandbloom.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/new-pattern-lily.html please check it out, thanks helen / hopeandbloom
