This pattern is the perfect pattern for all your special, saving-it-for-the-right-project, hand-dyed, sport or fingering weight yarn. Starting at the center point of the triangle, you work the pattern repeat until you run out of yarn. And don’t let the working size fool you, because once you block it, you’ll not only see it grow, but it will open up your stitches so beautifully!

The 16 Page PDF pattern includes:

  • Full Written Pattern with tips and tricks for less experienced crocheters or pattern readers and supplemental photos
  • Photo (and linked video) tutorial for the Modified Iris Stitch
  • Consolidated Written Pattern - no photos or tips/tricks, just the pattern in an easy to print format
  • Row Tracker with stitch counts to aid with repeats
  • Stitch Chart
  • Navigational links for getting around the PDF quickly


One of the biggest complaints I hear from even some of the most experienced crocheters is that they have a hard time reading patterns. I take the time to walk you through instructions, decoding the crochet-speak with tips along the way. I’m there 100% of the way showing you how to create those special stitches with full photo tutorials and linked video tutorials. But you want to know what makes my PDF extra special?  Navigation!  When you view it on your devices, you will be able to jump back and forth between sections with ease via the bookmarks I have embedded in the document. I cover all the bases by including a stitch chart available only with the PDF version. In addition to all of the above, the PDF is just laid out in the most user-friendly way possible.  You can print the entire document, or just print the pages relevant to the pattern.  Each segment is separated from the others by page breaks, so you can print what you need and nothing more!

Please note that this is a paid PDF version of a pattern that can soon be found for FREE, on the Two Brothers Blankets blog.
