Picot Dot Wrap - revisited

Picot Dot Wrap
off the needles
November 2016
When the Picot Dot Wrap/Shawl came off the needles last week, it didn't look very appealing.


Actually, it resembled a colorful sting ray. I seriously questioned whether the pronounced hump in the middle would even come out in the blocking, but . . .

with a few hundred pins, I managed to straighten the edge.

Once the shawl dried completely, it was ready for its photo shoot. 


The center hump is slightly visible, but it has been tamed enough to wrap around the neck.

Pattern: Picot Dot Wrap by Cheryl Zuccaro

Yarn: Kauni wool
         colors EC (black/grey - 140g - used 69g) and EQ (rainbow - 160g  - used 85g)

Needles: US size 6

The pattern states the kit will make 2 shawls - colors reversed. My finished shawl used 154 total grams of wool, and I have 146 grams remaining. By adding a bit of another black yarn, I will have enough to knit the second shawl.

  5. I like the picot edging. I had a pattern I did that had that (Fisherwoman's Cowl). When I first saw that I had to do a 'picot' I had a panic attack but found they are pretty easy to do. You Tube videos are a blessing for a beginning knitter!

  10. How apt a description -- colorful sting ray. After blocking it looks great. Do you steam it while pinned? Do you have to re block shawls after washing?
