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 for adult sweaters and cardigans come in 9 to 12 sizes and are graded to fit up to a 62" bust at minimum. You can also find them with pattern specs, such as yardage and sizing, on Ravelry.
