Overview

Featuring 25 traditional projects derived from basic knit and purl patterns, this timeless collection of knitwear designs offers new and innovative ideas on a variety of subjects, such as stitch patterns, yarn combinations, and yarn construction techniques that add modern finishes to classic designs. Focusing on technique, crafters will learn a variety of basic knits, from entrelac, color stranding, and double knitting to slip-stitch, and herringbone. These knits can in turn be correctly gauged and identically sized to match the measurements in each tutorial and applied to finished garments. Without requiring extensive knitting experience, crafters only need to know how to cast on, knit, and bind off to successfully complete any project.

About.com Guide to Knitting
The book is a great choice for people who like their lines and their designs simple, but who don't think that simple has to mean boring.
Knit Together
Treats gauge swatches with much respect: each design includes a clear photo of a tension swatch accompanied for full instructions... A refreshing sight to see in a knitting book!

Library Journal
Danish designer Isager (Japanese Inspired Knits) features appealing projects incorporating challenging techniques (e.g., double knitting, color work) into relaxed garments. The focus is on classic Scandinavian modern-inspired styling rather than trendy looks, and many of the garments are constructed to avoid seaming or other finishing. For experienced knitters.
