Muirs is inspired by the traditional Shetland lace designs. Muirs is a triangular shaped shawl knit with fingering weight yarn from the bottom up. The lace edging is worked back and forth and then the body of the shawl begins by picking up selvage stitches from the edging. A second lace pattern begins the main part of the shawl followed by a garter section. As the shawl progresses, stitches decrease until only 8 remain. These stitches are easily grafted together and then you can block your lovely Shetland-inspired shawl.
One Size – 56 inch wingspan x 23 inch height
16 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch after blocking
