The most obvious feature of Pointelle is its open space made by eyelets or ladders. You may also know this as lace knitting. It also consists of lines and solid areas. Consider all three when you design your own patterns.

Your machine may have come with a lace carriage and punchcards but unless you want to knit huge swathes of fabric of regular patterns you will not be using it to learn about pointelle.
