Joji

Joji Locatelli is one of my favourite designers on Ravelry. Her patterns are very well written and easy to follow.

This is how she describes herself
I am just an Argentine girl who really likes to knit.

Joji has a new design - an easy to wear turtleneck that you can knit in worsted weight or fingering weight.

Right now I'm working on her 3-Color Cashmere Cowl. I took it outside for pictures but it is really windy out there.
I've also knit her pattern Ley Lines. I liked it so much that I did it twice.

You can see all of Joji's patterns here...

As I was scrolling through the list I found another one that I have knit.
Holi Party in tosh ASAP
This is Imagine When.

If you have a chance to make one of her patterns, I recommend that you do. You won't be disappointed.

Very interesting to see the pattern written for different types of yarn. I often make items with various types of yarn and rewrite my own patterns myself. It takes some experience to do that, but is well worth the time to do it to get a look I want. Your three color cowl is so very bright and happy!
