Take one look at this book and you will want to knit every single thing in it. Strands of Joy features 20 versatile colourwork patterns, including sweaters and cardigans as well as an elegant dress, a warming hat and a kid'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. Patterns are written in a wide range of sizes for all body types.
Anna Johanna is a knitwear designer and former statistician who lives in Finland. She is known for her sensitive use of colour and texture, and her patterns are often evocative of the Scandinavian landscape. This is her first book.
