Iridescent Steps is a unique crescent-shaped shawl with a body worked in yarn with long color repeats. A border worked in two colors features garter stitch eyelet short rows alternating with blocks of solid stitches. A clever row
of checkered stitches allows you to carry both yarns up the border, eliminating the need to work in a multitude of ends. This shawl has one size with two options for short rows on the border, the first option has more Lace wedges with narrower Solid Sections and the second option has less Lace wedges with wider Solid Sections.
