Pattern Description:

Part of the Mirri pattern collection, including Hat, Cowl and Mitts. These simple yet striking designs all feature eyelet fabric and eyelet ribbing. Individually or together, they are perfect for an adventurous beginner or the more experienced knitter looking for a fast fun knit. A great choice for quick gifts or to complement your own wardrobe.
The Mirri cowl is wide enough to keep your neck cozy. The short version is a fun and warm accessory, while the long version can be worn two ways - long or wrapped twice.
Mirri is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning stars. Scores of eyelets dot this fabric like twinkling stars in the night sky.
