Japanese Wonder Knitting offers the perfect foray into the techniques and application of Japanese-style knitting.
Japanese knitting dictionaries have quickly become a favorite reference among experienced Western knitters, and Japanese Wonder Knitting takes those wonderful resources one step further, giving step-by-step lessons in executing classic stitches the Japanese way. Like its companion volume, Japanese Wonder Crochet, this book introduces needleworkers to a whole new approach to staples such as bubble stitches, herringbone, cockleshell, cables, smocking, entrelac and more.
A swatch pattern is provided for each stitch to help knitters learn the mechanics of the stitch before applying them to larger projects. The personal and home accessory projects included provide something for every level of time commitment.
A total of 23 projects are presented, including:
"'Wonder' is a much-deserved adjective here...[a] well-illustrated book from Nihon Vogue exploring the more unusual stitches possible, apart from the regular knits and purls...After viewing these elegant knits, crafters will emerge with a sense of delight and, perhaps, a resolve to try."
