Little Iris Shawl

Description

A triangle shawlette in two sizes (doll/adult), worked from hem to neck in openwork motifs to resemble an iris-bordered garden. The easy-to-work stitch patterns and wrong-side rest rows make this piece a great first shawl project, or a fun, relaxing weekend traveler for experienced knitters. Its ornate appearance belies the simplicity of its construction; this piece knits up quickly and effortlessly to make a beautiful spring accessory or last-minute gift.
