Strands of Joy features a versatile collection of 20 colourwork patterns. The knits include sweaters and cardigans as well as an elegant dress, a hat, and a child's pullover. The patterns are worked seamlessly from top down. Cast on a mindless two-colour project or let your mind find peace in more complicated knits that require you to stay focused! Beautiful photography highlights the gorgeous colour plays and modern interpretations of traditional knits which offer strands of joy.
