The Dots Collection
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
