A Japanese stitch dictionary from popular designer Yoko Hatta-the founder and driving force behind the Kazekobo Studio.
This book presents her 200 favorite Kazekobo stitch patterns-a delightful selection of multipurpose knit-and-purl, lace, cable, Aran and rib & twist stitches in solids and motifs.
Sample projects give knitters a chance to practice Hatta's techniques. These include:
Mini mufflers using knit-and-purl stitches
A cozy scallop-edged scarf using lace stitches
A beautifully textured pair of mittens using cable and Aran stitches
A stylish and sturdy pair of two-tone socks using rib and twist stitches
Experienced knitters will find a wealth of unique patterns just waiting to be brought to life. A guide to the basic symbols shows how to knit the stitches, step-by-step.
Originally published in Japanese by Nihon Vogue, whose books have brought the designs of artists such as Hitomi Shida, Keiko Okamoto and others to knitters around the world.
