Wordsmith Wednesday – Pointelle

Standard

Pointelle

A friend gave me a knitting pattern of a jumper labelled “Pointelle”. Neither of us knew what this meant so I turned to “Mr Google” for help!

Pointelle is a delicate-looking fabric that is woolen or knitted and has little eyelet holes to create the appearance of lace. The fabric used for a feminine, delicate-looking knitted shirt with little eyelet holes that make the shirt look lacy is an example of pointelle.
