Crochet Iris Stitch In a Rectangle Free Tutorial

Last Updated on December 16, 2023

After releasing the crochet Iris stitch in a square tutorial, many of you have approached me and asked if there is also a way to crochet this beautiful stitch in a rectangle.
This crochet iris stitch is perfect for a blanket, while working in a square is the easiest way, I know it is more practical to make a rectangle blanket than a square.
