We are smitten with Joji Locatelli’s Pure Joy shawl and have decided to hold a Thursday evening Knit-Along to work this one up!  The simplicity of this design makes it an ideal choice for knitting in company and also provides a beautiful canvas for everyone to express their unique personality and preferences through  yarn and colour choices.

As the designer notes: “The combination of garter stitch, short rows and eyelet rows can create the most varied results, but it always guarantees that you?ll have a good time knitting. Enjoy working away on this simple and fun project!

You will need:  800 yards of fingering weight yarn in 2 colors. You will need approximately 430 yards for color A and 380 yards for color B.  Attention: The designer notes that many skeins of fingering weight yarn have only 400 yards, but most testers used more than that for color A.

Pure Joy can be purchased and downloaded from Ravelry HERE.

The Knit-Along will run for 4 consecutive Thursdays – November 10, 17, 24, and December 1 – 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. No need to register (this is a free activity), simply come to the store on those dates ready to cast on and knit the Pure Joy among friends.  All we ask is that you use yarn purchased at Espace Tricot (new or previously stashed) to knit your shawl.  🙂

If you complete your Pure Joy shawl by December 8th and send us a photo, we?ll enter your name into a draw for a $25 Espace Tricot Gift Card!
