Iridescent Steps is a unique crescent-shaped
shawl with a body worked in yarn with long
color repeats. A border worked in two colors
features garter stitch eyelet short rows alternating
with blocks of solid stitches. A clever row
of checkered stitches allows you to carry both
yarns up the border, eliminating the need to
work in a multitude of ends. This shawl has one
size with two options for short rows on the border,
the first option has more Lace wedges with
narrower Solid Sections and the second option
has less Lace wedges with wider Solid Sections.
