Tunisian Motifs is an interesting and fun combination of motif crochet and Tunisian crochet techniques.

Each motif is worked separately in short rows, using a regular crochet hook, and joined to other motifs as you go. The joining method creates a delicate netting pattern to show off the circular motifs to full effect.

The pattern includes four different shapes, with yardage estimates, so you can easily crochet the wrap you prefer: a scarf, a stole, a shawlette or a shawl. Each shape can be modified to make it wider or longer.

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