The paperflower is the name given to the pink or red bracts around the bougainvillea flower and which I think is similar to the patterning on this scarf.
I decided on a two-colour brioche stitch pattern with a selvedge edge which creates a neat effect.
In this photo I hope you can see that there is a leaf pattern on the reverse but it is different to the front.
The pattern is available to buy on craftsy: Paperflower scarf pattern
or in my ravelry shop: Knitting Emporium on ravelry
The techniques used are relatively simple. I have made a series of youtube videos covering the techniques used in this pattern.
