Joyful Josie Shawl
"The Joyful Josie Shawl is inspired by my dear friend Josie (10) who has the same condition as me. Josie is a competition swimmer; just like I was at her age. Therefore I chose a yarn cake that has blue tones – the color of water. I used a simple stitch which is a combination of single crochet and double crochet stitches on top of each other, which gives a beautiful texture. For the shape I chose a round crochet shawl design based on the waves in the water. Thanks to the round shape the shawl can be worn in different ways: like a normal scarf/ shawl or as a wrap around the shoulders."

Wow! This is really pretty. Not the typical shawl as it appears to be less pointy than others. The shawl appearance gradually changes a couple of times in color and design. Disappointed the yarn that is used here can only be purchased in Europe. It is a beautiful yarn.

This free pattern is only one of many by the designer. I admire her moxie and think that she is very brave sharing her story with us. Thank you for all you do.

Her story is inspirational to say the least. I think we should all pick up our hooks and yarn cake of choice and crochet our own Joyful Josie Shawl of our own to support this beautiful person! I especially love color combos that mimic nature, like the blues of the ocean.
