"Dots and flecks."

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!

We re-yarned the Polka Dot Scarf in Shibui’s delightful Pebble—a lace-weight blend of recycled silk, merino wool, and cashmere. With a tweedy look, but a cashmere touch, Pebble adds a bit of textural interest and lots of soft warmth to your knitted fabric.
