This scarf is knitted seamlessly in one piece. The short-row technique is being used.

Besides the indicated yarn that the sample was knit with, this shawl may be worked from any other yarn weight as well. The thinner the yarn, the smaller the resulting individual flowers, the thicker the yarn, the larger the flowers.
Individual flower pattern might be used on its own as coaster or as an embellishment for a multitude of objects: scarves, wraps, hats, jackets, sweaters, fabric bags, decorative pillows and anything else you can think of.
