'Our boggy patch of the earth doesn't have much going for it. We spend most of the year up to our ankles in mud, except for a few glorious weeks in late Spring when the Flag Iris blooms and its golden flowers pop out against the dark green foliage.
This lightly textured and patterned shawl worked in vibrant stripes will bring that glory to your fingers as you make it and to your shoulders all year round.
Wingspan (a): 145cm/57in
The shawl can be made larger or smaller by adding or removing additional repeats of section three.
