A companion piece to Leventry, Mirit is a smaller shawl using a similar combination of texture and lace. Worked from the top down, starting with a garter tab, it begins with a section of alternated garter and stockinette stripes, then transitions into a lace band that combines eyelets with ribbing. The shawl is finished with an elegant picot bind off.
To knit this shawl, you need to know how to do a provisional cast on and pick up stitches from a garter edge (for the garter tab), knit and purl when working flat, do directional increases (m1L and m1R), work lace stitches from a chart or written directions, do basic decreases (k2tog, ssk, sk2p), and do a cable cast on (for the picot bind off).
You will need approximately 300 yds./274.5 m of each of two colors of fingering weight yarn as well as four stitch markers and a yarn needle to complete the pattern. The lace section of the shawl is both written and charted.
