Part of the Mirri pattern collection, including Hat, Cowl and Mitts available as individual patterns or as a set. 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.
