This is the Honorable Mention Winner of the Crochet Guild of America 2013 Design Contest, Accessories Category.

Five petal flowers are everywhere in this design, each motif is worked in Tunisian crochet to form flowers in the negative space. Within these negative space flowers a flower blooms on each petal. This design is created with three large motifs that join as you go, creating a wrap that can transform into a shrug by simply utilizing the flower “buttons” that accent the motifs.
