Strands of Joy II is the long-awaited sequel to Anna Johanna’s popular first book. This new collection is centered around big colorwork patterns and untreated wool yarn. The book contains 17 knitting patterns ranging from sweaters and cardigans to accessories. All the designs have been inspired by Anna Johanna’s youth at the turn of the millennium, sprinkling the modern knits with a dash of nostalgia. 
Spend a bit of time with me reminiscing, get lost in your own memories and knit new ones into the stitches on your needles. That is what knits do, after all — carry memories with them.

Anna Johanna is a knitwear designer from Jyväskylä, Central Finland. She is known for her often-romantic knits with much love for details, textures and colors. Since 2020, this former statistician has been designing full-time. Anna Johanna’s debut book, Strands of Joy, was published in 2021.

"Strands of Joy Vol. II embraces the magic of colorwork knitting. Anna Johanna has designed something for everyone in this fresh, modern and whimsical book." — Kristin Drysdale, knitwear designer and author.

"Sweet personal stories introduce each knit, reflecting Anna's lively imagination and cheerful outlook. We join her adventures growing up in small-town Finland, encountering frogs, foxes, familiar upholstery, and the changing landscape, all spiced with 1990s pop culture!" — Mary Jane Mucklestone, knitwear designer and author


With her second book, Anna Johanna invites us to discover through her memories a fun and interesting palette of textured and colorwork designs, which I believe anyone can enjoy through knitting. — Jenny Ansah, knitwear designer
