There’s something so cheerful about polka dots! They add a little fun to anything you wear. Here we’ve created dots with a widely spaced eyelet stitch pattern that’s easy to knit and easy to remember. A slip stitch edging gives a slightly firmer edge to your scarf—no curling! Because the fabric is so light and floaty, a lavish scale seems just right. It’s a lot of knitting but the rows fly happily by.
Make a light-as-air scarf in a lace-weight yarn like Rowan Kidsilk Haze, or a cozy wrap in drapey, lace-weight Isager Alpaca 1, or switch up the fibers for a warm scarf and an airy wrap! Why not make one of each?
