Knit loves embroidering

This is my tam. I have made it using Egyptian cotton, and circular needles size 3.5, 4mm. It is my pattern. I cannot say it is a special pattern for a tam because it is just basic tam pattern suits my cotton yarn , and using
I love embroidery , and also love to use many kinds of handcrafts with each other- knit with embroidery, knit with crochet, crochet with sewing . So I have planned to make a plain tam and used embroidery to add this simple touch on it.
I have used three embroidery stitches which are, ( French knot, bullion stitch to make this little, and big flowers, and some kind of back stitch to make this green branches ).
