thanks again everyone n_n well i found a tutorial i made about 2-3 years ago but it's a tie around version. some of you might like this more than the current one. the pattern for the green part of the scarf is all knitted btw. a crochet version will work out too i think...http://nekoknits.blogspirit.com/album/knittings_patterns/jq_sugar_pat.3.html
other than that, the differences are that the current version has a k1 p1 stitch while the one in the link is in stockinette which ends up curling even after blocking. i decided to use k1 p1 in the current one because it won't curl, it's thicker and both sides look the same, although i had to cast on more stitches (9 stitches instead of 5). the leafs in the first version is only one sided so there is a purl side exposed. for the current version after the 3 stitch i-cord, i would cast on 3 extra stitches and work in the round to make the leaf double sided (requires 3 dpns).
i also no longer use that flower pattern in the link provided in that page. i basically ended up making my own but didn't write it down. sorry x_x;
