My Festive Iris Stitch Striped crochet Throw pattern is made in a fun and… well… festive color pattern. The Iris stitch is a beautiful stitch with lots of character, so I decided that it would look best with a simple trim.
The iris stitch is an easy stitch to learn, so this project is perfect to work on while listening to an audio book or watching tv. Come on now, we all do it! Between the larger hook size and the stitch itself, this throw works up quickly and has such a nice drape.
The striped pattern makes the stitch stand out more and highlights the natural wave of each row. This is one of my favorite throws and I really enjoyed making it.
The only drawback of a striped throw is the inevitable weaving in of the ends. This job can be made easier if you use the Russian join method or simply crochet over the ends as you go.
