Iris Stitch Crochet Photo & Video Tutorial

Iris Stitch Crochet Photo & Video Tutorial

I love working with cotton yarn, it’s one of my favorite things about summer crocheting! There are so many gorgeous stitches and patterns to try in different yarn weights and fibers. I enjoy seeing how each one works up a little differently and how some combinations just pop!

I adore how the iris stitch worked out in my next summer cowl pattern. It’s so lovely, I could look at it all day! Look for the full cowl pattern soon. Until it’s ready, I thought I would share a little tutorial for this stitch.

I’ve included both step by step photos and a short video. Keep scrolling for the photo tutorial.
