Knitwear designer Joji Locatelli of JOJI tells us "I am an Argentine lady who really likes to knit." If only it were that simple! Inspired by her loving family Joji knits what she likes to see her family and herself wearing, comfort is foremost and because of her natural instincts style follows suit. Her beautiful designs are laid out in well written patterns, step by step instructions that make a knitter feel accomplished and proud of their finished garment. 

I've had the pleasure of working with Joji for a little over a year, and with each introduction of every new piece my appreciation for her talent grows. 

For this giveaway Joji and I thought we'd have a little fun and do a "Treasure Hunt" through her collections: Accessories, Children's Garments and Women's Garments.  

There will be 3 winners and the prizes are an April Shawl Kit with a skein of Malabrigo Sock, the Tourist Sweater pattern and the Boxy Sweater pattern. 

But first enjoy these latest additions to her impressive resume of design work. 

Boxy
Boxy is a very simple modern sweater, with a very wide body and skinny sleeves. Worked with the lightweight yarn Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light it is very flattering, drapey and stylish!  A little short row section in the shoulders adds an interesting texture to the sleeves.  Directions are given to make a seamless version (worked in the round) or a seamed version (worked back and forth) of the body. The sleeves and the neckband are worked seamlessly in the round in both versions.

Dragonflies
While Dragonflies is a very feminine and comfortable jumper, worked in a beautiful textured stitch pattern which is very stretchy and will adapt to your body shape and hug you.  It is worked from the top down, seamlessly, in the round.  The collar is worked from the neck up so you can easily adjust its length.

April Shawl
Knit in 1 skein of Malabrigo Sock JOJI shares the story of her April Shawl.  The first little drops of a rain make me happy… They don’t wet you. They rest on your shoulders like tiny sparkling jewels…The beaded border of this shawl was designed to remind you of those first little raindrops… The body is worked from the neck down, with a crescent shape, and once it is completed, the border is worked sideways, with short repeats that are fun and fast to complete.

Tourist Sweater
And the Tourist Sweater is the perfect go to tunic pullover when you need something simple yet stylish and its knit in the soft merino wool yarn Malabrigo Merino Worsted. It’s a simple and quick knit, with a few twists that will keep the process of knitting it interesting, starting with knitting the collar in one direction, and the rest of the body in another.   In this photo, of Joji, she's also wearing her Buttontab Hat!
