Featuring short row garter stitch stripes, Misura is a design that makes the most of the properties of sideways knitting.

A deep garter stitch brim forms a snug ribbed band, from which the garter stitch stripes extend. The pattern is easily adjusted for different sizes by working more or fewer panels.
