We are happy to finally present the pattern Joy To The Wolrd shawl by Louise Robert that was offered in the Advent Calendar.
"This shawl was designed to use 10 mini skeins and a silk-mohair yarn from Biscotte Yarns advent calendar 2020. For this special project, I wanted to play with geometric shapes and contrasting textures to highlight the zig-zag pattern in the center of the stole. " - Louise Robert
In addition to the knitting pattern, you will need the following materials to knit the JOY TO THE WORLD shawl:
- Knitting Kit Including : HERMIONE 1 x 50g (Nature) + BIS-SOCK 10 x 25g (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J)
- Straight or circular needles of 3.25 mm or size needed to obtain gauge***
- One extra straight or circular needle of similar size (the size of this needle is not so important because we will use it to achieve the kitchener stitch)
- 10 re-sealable zipper storage bags (« ziploc » type) and a marker pen to identify them.
- Stitch holders or scrap yarn
- Stitch markers
- Removable stitch markers (or safety pins)
- Tapestry needle

FINAL SIZE: 222 cm; 87" long and 22cm; 8 ½" wide. To make a shorter stole, subtract one (or more) triangles. The quantity of yarn suggested is sufficient to knit up to 6 triangles, as shown in the photo.
GAUGE : 24 sts = 10cm; 4" in garter stitch, with Bis-Sock after blocking.
***ATTENTION: The gauge is not critical for this design, but a looser gauge could result in a larger stole that would require more yarn than indicated here. To avoid running out of yarn, be sure to respect the suggested gauge.
NOTES: This stole is made of 6 identical triangles, knitted in the same ways as "mini-shawls", which are joined to form a long strip. This project is rather easy to realize since it is entirely knitted in garter stitch. That said, I have identified two elements that could be more complex for beginners: starting the triangles with a garter tab cast-on and then grafting the triangles together in kitchener stitch. In both cases, I have prepared a tutorial to help you.
Since there are 10 skeins of Bis-Sock yarn to be included in the project, I used 10 small "ziploc style" bags to store and identify each ball of yarn. On each bag, I also wrote the number of rows to knit with that color. To avoid having to weave in several ends of yarn on each triangle, I suggest you to use this method by Stephen West: Weavin’ Stephen: https://youtu.be/Fz292NAjH2M

Good knitting! ♥
So happy with the yarn order I placed. The yarn arrived exactly when it was expected, and I had a tracking number to check the order’s progress. The yarn is gorgeous, the colors are as they appeared on the website. Will order again from this site. Thank you!
Clearly written pattern. Easy to follow. I’m just using stash yarn to make a fade. I’m almost finished with the knitting and next the grafting. I can graft the toe of a sock no problem but grafting 98 stitches is going to take some serious concentration!
Thank you for the pattern. I haven't started it yet but it looks like an interesting pattern to try!
Love this item
