Joyeux Shawlette Knitting Pattern: You know those shawl knitting patterns that say “this is so much easier to knit than it looks” and then it kicks your butt and you never finish knitting it?
This isn’t one of those patterns.
Joyeux is truly a joy to knit, with alternating bands of stockinette and lace, just enough of each to keep you from getting sick of either. :)
Perfect for that skein of luscious hand dyed or painted yarn you’ve been longing to use.
Three patterns in one! The 12-page pattern includes both written and charted instructions with two edging options: a plain reverse stockinette edge or a lace edge. The lace edging instructions include optional bead placement.
Originally exclusively available as a kit, Joyeux is a collaboration between Phydeaux Designs and Wool Candy, based on one of my favorite Arthur Rackham illustrations: Joy of a Fallen Leaf.
