Notes: Mihara is started as one long strip, first worked from end to end, and then with stitches picked up along each long side. Once the edges are complete, stitches are put on hold for the body opening and the sleeve openings, the remainder of the stitches are cast off, and a full twist is introduced into the fabric. The strip is then seamed, keeping the twist in place. Once this is complete, held stitches are replaced on the needle and the border around the body opening is worked in the round. Following this, the held sleeve stitches are replaced on the needle and worked in the round.
