1000 Japanese Knitting & Crochet Stitches
This classic compendium of Japanese stitches is finally available in an English-language version to allow even more crafters to enjoy these techniques. The book is a treasure trove of needlecraft patterns and motifs for makers seeking to create and better understand the variety of their craft.
This dictionary includes 700 original knitting stitch patterns and 300 original crochet patterns that have inspired many modern Japanese knitwear designs. You'll find classic lacy, cable, Aran, Fair Isle, Nordic, ethnic patterns; geometric, botanical and animal motifs; and so much more. Each pattern is charted with a delineation of the pattern repeat.
An introduction by Japanese knitting guru Gayle Roehm will help non-Japanese knitters navigate the differences between the Japanese and Western styles of knitting and crochet.
