Flag Iris Shawl
Our boggy patch of earth doesn't have much going for it. We spend most of the year up to our ankles in mud, except for a few glorious weeks in late Spring when the Flag Iris blooms and its golden flowers pop out against the dark green foliage.
This lightly textured and patterned shawl worked in vibrant stripes will bring that glory to your fingers as you make it and to your shoulders all year round.
Wingspan (a): 145cm/57in
The shawl can be made larger or smaller by adding or removing additional repeats of section three.
100g skein Triskelion Yarn Branwen (fine 4ply, 50% Wool/50% Silk, 500m/546y) in Fiachra - Col A
100g skein Triskelion Yarn Branwen (fine 4ply, 50% Wool/50% Silk, 500m/546y) in Geld - Col B
3.5mm (US E) hook
Note: This yarn has a very generous yardage and is very fine for a 4ply. Should you wish to substitute the yarn you may need an additional skein of each and use a larger hook to ensure the resulting fabric has enough drape.
16 sts and 14 rows in double crochet in the back loop only to 10cm/4in using 3.5mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension)
Basic crochet stitches, working in rows.
The shawl starts at one end, with increases at the neck edge only.
