ABOUT THE 'IT BRINGS YOU JOY' SHAWL BY JOJI LOCATELLI:
In today’s hectic world, finding moments for inner peace can be a challenge, but Joji's original Some Me Time shawl was born from the belief that such moments are invaluable.
It Brings You Peace is a natural continuation of the journey that began with Some Me Time.
A simple, mindless project to help us pause, breathe and embrace the moments of tranquility and self-care.
This shawl has a very simple construction, with a central spine, and it alternates sections of garter stitch, vertical stripes done by slipping stitches (no brioche) and the simplest lace.
69½” 174 cm from side to side and 36” 90 cm from top to bottom at deepest point.
3 skeins of Suri Monkey by Yarn Experiments (74% Baby Suri / 26% Silk, 50g / 382 yd 350m) or approx. 760 (698) yards of fingering weight fluffy yarn.
You’ll need 2 skeins or 573 yards (524m) in color 1 (show in colorway Pura Paz, cream); and 191 yards (174 m) in color 2 (shown in colorway Leo, golden brown)
Needles: US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.
Other notions: Several stitch markers, tapestry needle, blocking pins or wires.
14 sts and 30 rows to 4” 10cm in garter st on US 7 4.5 mm needles after blocking.
Every effort has been made to remove any excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain, particularly with dark and rich colours. It is therefore recommended to gently hand wash your hand dyed projects on their own, in cold water, with wool wash or a mild detergent.
