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).
The lace section of the shawl is both written and charted.
