Irida (Greek for rainbow) is a simply constructed triangular shawl knit from the top down with a lacey chevron pattern and garter stitch bands that show off the color changes of an ombré handspun yarn. The pattern is intuitive, perfect for those new to shawl knitting, and creates a lovely, wearable piece that puts your yarn on center stage. No one skein of handspun is the same, so this shawl is designed to be customizable, with notes on altering the pattern to suit your needs. And if you don’t have an ombré yarn on hand, the shawl would also be quite pretty made with different skeins in different colors, as long as they are the same weight.

Irida was completed with 450 yards/ 412 m of a DK weight handspun yarn.
