If you are searching for unique cultural inspiration, Japanese Knitting Stitches From Tokyo's Kazekobo Studio book delivers an excellent range of knitting projects.
This exciting new Japanese stitch dictionary is from the popular Japanese designer - Yoko Hatta. Though this is her first book in English, her work already has an extensive following in Western countries.
The superbly designed and photographed book represents Japanese knitting at its finest and includes 200 gorgeous patterns - a delightful selection of multipurpose knit-and-purl, lace, cable, Aran and rib & twist stitches in solids and motifs. The book includes a conversion table at the back and also a quick guide on how to read the Japanese charts, which differ from Western ones.
Sample projects give knitters a chance to practice Hatta's techniques. These include:
- Mini mufflers using knit-and-purl stitches
- A cosy scallop-edged scarf using lace stitches
- A beautifully textured pair of mittens using the cable and Aran stitches
- A stylish and sturdy pair of two-tone socks using rib and twist stitches
