Tunisian Flowers is a bright little kerchief-shaped shawl, which is fun to crochet and to wear.

The design combines regular and Tunisian crochet techniques. The motif centers are made using standard double crochet stitches, while the rest of the motif is worked in Tunisian crochet. A lace edging, consisting of slip stitches and picots, gives each motif a nice border and a pretty way to join them all together.

Tunisian Flowers is one of the two patterns, along with Tunisian Motifs, included in the Tunisian Motif Collection.
