The "Dot Shawl" by Casapinka @casapinka was designed as part of Bronwyn's portfolio for the Rhode Island School of Design. We are pleasantly surprised to see the dots are really not bobbles but instead are P2togs! No turning of your work is necessary--yay!
We knit the Shawlette version with finished dimensions of 14 x 58 in (35 x 150cm) using 1 skein each of La Bien Aimée Allure and La Bien Aimée Merino Bouclé. If you plan to knit the larger Shawl version with finished dimensions of 17 x 64 in (43 x 163cm), you will need 2 skeins of La Bien Aimée Allure and 1 skein of La Bien Aimée Merino Bouclé.
We used colorway "There Goes My Yarn Diet" in Merino Boucle and colorway "Grain de lin" in Allure. The shawl is knit with size US 4 (3.5mm) and 6 (4.mm) needles.
The "Dot Shawl" pattern by Casapinka is available for purchase on Ravelry. It is not included in the purchase of the kit.
