Looking for a flower pattern...

I'm relatively new to the forums...mostly a lurker, but finally found a reason to post. I'm in need of help!

I'm making a cowl for a friend coming in to town to volunteer at Sundance and need a pattern for a BIG flower to add as an accessory/closure for the scarf/cowl. I'm pretty much a novice, but a quick learner. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

Now that's one good looking scarf/cowl. Especially the flower, making something for a friend that fits the personality. And the work that turned out to nice looking scarf/cowl here.

Thanks MMario! It's very true! I made it to fit her personality and boy does it! ;o) She's a great friend. I think, overall, for my first flower knitting project it didn't turn out too bad. Hehe..

Thanks so much!! I am a member of ravelry.com...I'm really trying to hone up my crocheting skills. I used to crochet when I was just a teen, but know it's like reading stereo instructions in japanese. :o(

I do have an etsy site with a few of my things.....I mean, if you'd like to see them! :o)

Not trying to "advertise" or anything..it's just easier to post a link than pics. ;o) Thanks again for all your advice! So glad I found this site too. It's nice to find a group of men with the same hobby/talent, especially in a field where we're the minority. Real Men *Do* Knit!!

You can also check Knitting

You can also check Knitting Pattern Central (www.knittingpatterncentral.com). Everything is categorized there. It should be an easy find if they have some posted.

Hi Michael...sounds like a

Hi Michael...sounds like a great idea to make something interesting and fun for a friend.

I would first say that it's generally easier to crochet a flower, even if it will be attached to a knitted hat. So if you have any crochet skills (and hooks!) I'd suggest doing a google search for crochet flowers.

If you have no crochet skills or hooks...there are quite a few knitted flower patterns on Ravelry (if you're a member):

Good luck, and hopefully we'll get to see a photo of what you come up with.
