Some monsters really love food. Iris is one of those monsters. This knitting pattern will show you how to knit Iris the Gourmet Monster, a pattern I designed to feature the amazing yarns from Lorna's Laces. This is a quick, easy, satisfying project that knits up quickly on many yarn/needle combinations. Since it takes 120-180 yards of yarn to knit Iris, this is a great one-skein, stash busting, or scrap yarn project. This pattern is very addicting and you will find yourself knitting a whole bread box full of monsters!
