The Joy of Color by Janine Bajus


The Joy of Color is Janine’s 3-day Design Your Own Fair Isle workshop expanded and in written form. She demystifies the design process, walking you through it step-by-step so you can create the design you want: classic, modern, bohemian, folkloric, subdued, bright—whatever you can dream of!

The Joy of Color is divided into 6 chapters:

  • Getting Started
  • Color
  • Motifs
  • Garment Shapes
  • Techniques
  • Getting It Done

The Techniques chapter answers the questions that most often come up in class. This is not a project book (there are no patterns in the book—it’s all about YOU making YOUR OWN designs!), but there are templates for small projects (cap, tam, fingerless mitts, scarf), useful for testing designs. And a comprehensive index is included.

Every chapter includes a workshop section and recommended resources for further exploration along with several garment case studies. You will hear from 13 students about how they designed their sweaters using the process outlined in this book.
