One of the many enjoyable things about Susan’s patterns are the interesting facts she includes about her inspiration for her pattern. Aspects of Iris are particularly relevant to the work MSF does, especially hope, courage, wisdom.

Throughout its history, the meaning of the iris has come to include faith, hope, and wisdom. Depending on factors such as color and region, irises may bear additional meanings as well. In some parts of the world, the dark blue or purple iris can denote royalty, whereas the yellow iris can be a symbol of passion. Irises may also express courage and admiration.

All patterns have been generously donated to the project by designers to raise funds for MSF and are available for your knitting and crocheting pleasure. In return, we ask that you make a donation to p/hop based on the hours of enjoyment you will get from these patterns. p/hop is based on an honesty box system and the amount you donate is completely up to you!
