Mirador by Nim Teasdale

Mirador is the Spanish word for lookout. This zigzaggy crescent was dreamed up on a lookout high up in the Sierra Nevada, looking out across row upon jagged row of mountains, towards the sea. To me, this view looked very like a crescent shawl. :)

The sample was worked from both ends of a single cake of yarn, however it would also be I deal for long colour run yarns, handspun, variegateds or striping yarns, or striping a variegated against a solid, or two complementary solids. It’s a fun way to mix up some colours.

Gauge is not critical with this project. This page lists 4.5mm needles, which were used for the sample, but please adjust your needle size to suit your own yarn. This design is suited to a range of weights from fingering to worsted, and adaptable to any yardage.

Knitting by the seat of your pants 1 is a collection of mostly garter projects in a variety of shapes, focussing on simple yet interesting 4 row construction, which is easily memorised so you don’t need to carry the pattern around with you all the time.

Each of these patterns can be worked entirely from the written pattern, or from the chart with some notes.
