Iris Stitch Granny Square | Free Crochet Pattern

This easy granny square is the 5th square to be released as part of the Hodgepodge Granny Square crochet along and will surprise you with how quickly this granny square stitches up.

The open crochet stitches are created by working the small fans of stitches on top of each other; this also makes it a super easy stitch to know where to work the next stitch.

I’m a big fan of the iris stitch and have already featured this stitch pattern in a crochet pattern released earlier this year – The Iris Blossom Beach Tunic was a great cover up that I used on my holiday in Mexico.

You’re going to love stitching up this square and will enjoy the easy repeat of the stitches used to create this lacy crochet granny square.
