The Design

“Fuzzy dots.”

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 the lace-weight yarn, Rowan Kidsilk Haze—a favorite go-to in the shop. It’s delicate and fine with a lovely halo that gives a subtle fuzz to those ‘dots.’ Strong but sheer, weightless but warm—perfect for this pretty Polka Dot Scarf!
