Iris Garden is a lightweight cowl inspired by...you can guess, right?
I created this pattern in 2020, when I was unable to take my usual spring trips to the botanical gardens with my mother, where one of our favorite places is the iris beds.

Designed in a lace pattern with a single cable twist up the center, in two lengths, this cowl has multiple wear options (including headband!), and makes the most out of a smaller or partial skein of fingering weight yarn.

This pattern is suited for adventurous beginners, intermediate knitters, or any knitter who enjoys a pattern that will hold their interest without requiring constant concentration.
Skills include provisional cast-on, Kitchener or 3-needle bind-off, basic lace (yo, ssk, k2tog), and simple cables.
