link to the original: click me
i really liked the scarf when i first saw it on that website until i saw it in real life and noticed that it didn't hold up so well and the flowers were very limp. it did inspire me to make up one kind of like it in an illustration
i drew and eventually a month later i bought the yarn and decided to make my own version of it, one that will hold up well and not limp like the original, so here's my version. i call it "Sugar" naming it after the character i drew the floral scarf on. oh yeah, i forgot to mention that it is knit and crochet combo
edit: should've done this sooner. i noticed i'm missing a row where you start the leaf!

After knitting up the base and the first stem and leaf, go back to the other end to where the
cast on tail is, pick up sts using that tail on the RS of work with long side of work facing
you and start I-cord. This will only work if the yarn you're working with is mostly wool and
plied. When you run out of yardage, especially if you're using a plied wool yarn, use the spit
splice method to join more yarn. if not wool (IE: cotton, acrylic), just take the previous ball
you used, pick up sts, and proceed working I-cord.
