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.
