Named after a form of surface decoration, the aptly named Pointillé Shawl is dotted with rich, textural stitch patterns throughout. Contrasting stripes break up the body of the shawl and a tidy trim in a natural color finishes the piece. Deluxe Worsted Superwash makes this woolly accessory a satisfyingly quick knit you’ll love to wear.

This textured, crescent-shaped shawl begins with a garter-tab cast-on. Increases are worked on right side and wrong side rows throughout the pattern. The shawl is finished with a simple slip stitch crochet picot edging. In this pattern, slipped stitches are worked purlwise with yarn held in back of work unless otherwise noted.
