Let The Fun Begin

My brother and I are Irish Twins. We were born in the same month, but less than a year apart. Our birthdays are in January; I am older but not by a full year. This block is dedicated to our life-long bond, one known only by Irish Twins.

The block features stylized irises in a pretty border of curved stonework. It is definitely an advanced block, and will challenge even experienced crocheters.

Skill: Advanced Block

Tutorial: There is a full photo tutorial provided as an additional pattern in the download.

I am honoured to be In BAWJ2019 by Julieanny Yeager.

Thank you to all my testers. Special thanks to Debbie Bonner, who provided me with endless entertainment and photos unlimited as she slogged through the rounds with red pen in hand, and her hand on her chin. I’d send her a case of wine, but it would be intercepted at the border and I’d lose my stash.
