Pattern Description:

First in a series of two (so far) shawls that seek
to show off gorgeous, hand dyed variegated sock yarns in unusual ways. Designed as part of my portfolio for the Rhode Island School of Design Hand Knitting Program.

Dot separates out the colors into dots against a solid background. Watching the colors separate and unfold across the shawl is gratifying. The idea is to use your favorite variegated (or solid) sock yarn against any brand of fingering/sock weight yarn.

The dots are made without turning your work (unlike many bobbles) and once you've done a few they become meditative - you will look forward to dot rows.

Yarn amounts: 400/650 yards of background fingering/sock yarn and 250 yards of variegated or contrast yarn for the dots.


22 st/inch on US 6 needles.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 14 X 58" (shawlette) and 17 X 64" (shawl) after blocking,


  • 400/650 yds fingering weight

You Will Also Need:

  • 250 yards of contrast fingering weight yarn

Suggested yarn:

400 yards of Fingering weight
