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
