A Joyful Thread is part of Shawl Joy the first book by Softsweater Knits. You can buy the eBook here on Ravelry or you can wait until Oct 5th to order a lovely hard copy of the book.

A Joyful Thrad is worked from the centre out. It’s a square shawl which is one quarter stockinette, one quarter lace and two quarters garter. You can wear it elegantly in many different ways: in half as a triangle, in half as a stole, over your head, under your coat, wrapped around you whichever way you choose.

Yarn:

Needles:

3mm (US 2.5) double pointed needles.
3mm (US 2.5) circular needles in at least a 32” (80cm) cord.
Or whatever size needle it takes you to get gauge.

Notions:

8 stitch markers.
Whichever tools you prefer to block your shawls with.
