For this pattern, I chose to work with Lion Brand Truboo yarn. This was a new line for me and I was so glad I took a chance when I ordered it. Truboo yarn is incredibly soft and the drape is so gentle and beautiful. This yarn is a weight 3 (DK) and 100% rayon from bamboo. This scarf pattern is an excellent way to practice the iris stitch while creating a practical project. You will be using the iris stitch throughout but I have set up the measurements for length and width. Of course, those can be adjusted to your preference but please see the notes below regarding yardage. Let’s begin:
– This pattern is written in US terms
– Gauge is not important with this pattern. Lion Brand Truboo yarn is a fairly stretchy yarn so the finished size may differ based on tension. Upon completion without tassels, the scarf measures approximately 55 inches long and 5 inches wide. The length can be extended if preferred by repeating row 2 but please keep in mind this will add to your required yardage
– Yardage amount mentioned under the materials includes tassels
– Turning CH 3 will be worked into throughout the pattern. You will be stitching into the CH 3 space, not the CH stitches at the end of the rows
– The iris stitch is used throughout the pattern. This stitch contains “2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC” all in one stitch
– A brief tutorial for the iris stitch can be found below along with a link to a detailed walk through
– Tassels can be added but aren’t necessary
– Approximately 335 yards of DK yarn. I used Lion Brand Truboo yarn in the “Silver” colourway. Click here to view this yarn on the Lion Brand website
– 4mm hook. I used my Furls Streamline “Cream” hook. Click here to view this hook on the Furls website
– Yarn needle
– Measuring tape
CH – Chain
DC – Double Crochet
Special Stitch Tutorial:
Iris Stitch – The iris stitch is made up of “2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC” all in one stitch. It is worked into each CH 1 space of the iris stitch of the previous row. Detailed Tutorial: Click here
To begin, CH 27
Into the fifth CH from your hook, place 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC (all in the same stitch). Skip the next 3 CH stitches. *In the next stitch place 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC. Skip the next 3 CH stitches*. Repeat from * to * 3 more times. Place 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC into the next stitch. You should have two unworked CH stitches remaining. Skip 1 CH stitch and place 1 DC into the last CH stitch. CH 3 and turn.
(6 iris stitches, 1 DC [end], 1 CH 3 [end])
Skip the first 3 DC. Into the CH 1 space of the first iris cluster, place 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC. Skip the next 4 DC. *Into the CH 1 space of the next iris cluster, place 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC. Skip the next 4 DC*. Repeat from * to * 3 more times. Place 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC into the CH 1 space of the last iris cluster. Skip the next 2 DC and place 1 DC into the CH 3 space. CH 3 and turn.
(6 iris stitches, 1 DC [end] 1 CH 3 [end])
Repeat row 2. After completing row 103, fasten off and weave in ends.
Adding Tassels To Your Iris Bloom Scarf:
Cut 56 pieces of your yarn, each 8 inches in length. Each end will have 7 tassels, each containing 4 pieces of yarn. You might find using a larger hook helpful in pulling your ends through the tassel loops. After your tassels are finished, you can trim as needed.
Congratulations! Your Iris Bloom Scarf is complete! This fashionable, lightweight scarf is perfect for the early spring or warmer autumn days. With its beautiful drape and eye catching stitch, this scarf will definitely be a conversation starter! Check out the versions my fantastic pattern testers made:
