This eyelet row knitting pattern is great for beginners. Connect the Dots is just the right size for tweens to adults. Of course, you can always use more or less yarn to make it bigger or smaller to suit your needs. The shawl features stripes of about 1.5 inches of garter stitch and then a row of eyelets. Connect the Dots is a great way to conquer your first eyelet row knitting pattern.

7 Comments on Eyelet Row Knitting Pattern – Connect the Dots – Great Beginner Project!

  1. Very nice shawl, and a very nice modest dress. Where did you get your dress or the pattern for the dress. Thanks so much.

    • It’s actually my mom in the photo (and my daughter is the child in some of the photos). The photos were taken while we were at a medieval event, so they are wearing medieval costumes. I made them. 🙂

  2. I noticed in the pattern that stitch markers are required, but they are not on the materials list, do you know how many and what type are needed, please?

    • Ooops! I’ll add those. You will want 3 stitch markers that will fit around your needles. Thank you for letting me know!
