As the name implies, Joy is a pleasure to knit. Equally fun to wear, it can be paired with jeans, a skirt or cool cotton shorts for trans-seasonal wear. Beginning with a picot cast on, the body is worked in a lacy tube to the underarms, then box pleats are added to the bust. Extra stitches are cast on for the straps and the yoke is shaped in garter stitch. There is a lot of joy in simplicity!
