Overview

Inspired by the seasonal festivals and traditions of Japan, this blend of traditional Scandinavian knitting with distinctive Japanese influences explores the beautiful design elements steeped in folk customs. Created especially for women, these patterns are true to the Japanese ideals of high-quality design and materials. Twelve sweaters, oriented around the months of the year, are each knitted using nearly a dozen different techniques. With project names like "Sake and Soba," "Summer in Tokyo," "Rice Fields," "Flower Buds," and "Stone Garden," knitters will have plenty of inspiration. In addition to standard knit and purl combinations, the patterns feature double knitting, domino knitting, shadow knitting, lace, cables, entrelac, intarsia, and stranded two-color knitting. All techniques are described in detail with clear text and illustrations, and an illustrated glossary at the end of the book provides technical instruction needed for any project. Also included are Japanese ideographs that relate to themes that inspired the projects, a Japanese calendar, plus lush travel photography of Japan that will inspire any knitter.

"These are nice patterns...the patterns are all very detailed covering as much as 10 pages." - Knitting News

"A lovely and wearable collection which stands out from the crowd...these knits will turn heads and shake down a rain of compliments from knitters and non-knitters alike." - Simply Knitting

    A new twist in the Knitting world

    Love this new addition to my library. There are more than 2 items I want to make which means it's worth the money. Innovative patterns. Some with challenges but easy to read instructions.
    Get it, get inspired and wear something different in your wardrobe!
