Half Mitred is a triangle shaped shawl worked in different directions.
Due to garter pattern and emphasized lacy increases this shawl is fully reversible. Tassels at the tip of each triangle give the one color shawl its playful ease, while the different width of the stripes in the two color version give the shawl a more classic look.

Directions are written for DK weight yarn, but the shawl can easily be knit with any yarn, any yardage and no purling is required.
Percentage of yardage required for each section is provided.
