Joyeux Shawlette Knitting Pattern: 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. :)
JOIN the KAL! Starts November 2013, more details in Phydeaux’s Rav group: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/phydeaux-designs
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.
