*****This is a pattern on how to knit a shawl and not an actual shawl.*****
Mizu means water in Japanese. It’s phonetically pronounced “mee-zoo”.
Mizu is an elegant shawl that features combination of simple ridges and a wavy lace border. The shawl’s body is knitted bottom-up with the stitches later picked up for the border from the yo loops used for shawl increases. It is fun and easy construction to knit. Purl ridges used in the shawl’s body are carried over to the border as wavy ridges in a contrasting color. Suitable for a lazy night in or for a stroll along the shoreline, this light, yet warm shawl is perfect for all year round.
