The Dots Col­lec­tion

The Knitter - - Cobwebs In The Rain - by Jana Huck

To cre­ate her lat­est col­lec­tion of shawl pat­terns, Jana Huck has ex­plored dif­fer­ent ways in which dots can be achieved through knit­ting. It’s a sim­ple idea, but the re­sults are beau­ti­ful and will be a de­light to knit and wear.

Even the sim­plest of shawls here looks stun­ning: ‘Point­less’ com­bines a knit-and-purl pat­tern of small cir­cles, brought to life by stripes in vi­brant hues. ‘Good Point!’ is knit­ted on the bias, us­ing short rows to ‘bend’ garter ribs to cre­ate bands of wavy dots. The ‘Make Your Mark!’ de­sign has sec­tions of white eye­lets worked into bias stripes of blue garter stitch for an in­trigu­ing re­sult; knit­ted in a 4ply yarn, it’s a gen­er­ous and snug­gly shawl.

The del­i­cate Bird’s Eye Lace stitch pat­tern sur­rounds a cen­tral cir­cle of garter stitch on the beau­ti­ful ‘Around in a Round’, while ‘Dot Dot Dot’ com­bines in­tar­sia dots with a chic slip stitch pat­tern. 11.90 (ap­prox. £11) from www.ravelry.com/ pat­terns/sources/the-dots-col­lec­tion
