I wanted a shawl that was versatile, and enjoyable to knit, thus Iriana was born. It is a crescent shaped shawl moving back and forth between garter stitch, stockinette, and lace. The name “Iriana” means ‘peace,’ it is a calming, meditative knit that also keeps you fairly engaged. This shawl is a great subtle accent piece to any outfit. Use a solid color or use as many colors as you like!
