Patterns, Stitch pattern

Stitch pattern #2

This stitch pattern is my take on a two-dimensional flower. It could be used, for example, on two opposite sides of a scarf or on a back of a sweater.

The pattern is worked over 25 stitches, however the flower itself is worked over 15 sts, hence the additional 10 stitches can be omitted, increased,or decreased according to the needs.

Disclaimer: The patterns in the series Stitch pattern # are my original work, meaning I did not look at anything or copy anything to make them; however, as it is often the case with stitch patterns there is a probability (of a degree dependent on the complexity of a stitch pattern) that such a stitch pattern already exists in more forms or places than one. Hence, no one has to ask for my permission to use it or credit me if they do. But I would love to know if any of the stitch patterns I published is used.
