Haiku Knits: 25 Serenely Beautiful Patterns Inspired by Japanese Designby Tanya Alpert
Haiku, the graceful and evocative form of Japanese poetry, celebrates nature in all its subtle and unobtrusive beauty. In Haiku Knits, this appreciation for understated, direct beauty is expressed in the texture of a felted skirt, the rhythm of a chain of twisted cables, or the casual elegance of an asymmetric sweater. Author Tanya Alpert, a knitwear designer and fiber artist, presents 25 simple, modern garments and accessories inspired by Japanese design, featuring innovative elements and beautiful fibers. These technically simple yet stylish and sophisticated designs will appeal to fashion-forward knitters at all skill levels. Illustrated throughout with stunning photographs, this elegant book also includes an appendix of essential techniques.

Haiku Knits by Tanya Alpert is a great addition to any knitting library. There is something for all ranges of knitting experience. The directions are complete and easy to understand and the examples of finished pieces are photographed beautifully. There are very few books out there that showcase Habu Textiles knitting yarns so when this one came out, I just had to have it.
