Description


Embrace the Japanese concept of ma (negative space) with these delicate lace stitches.

280 Japanese Lace Stitches is a fun and informative resource for experienced knitters. This book is filled with a wonderful variety of beautiful, openwork stitch patterns, including leaf patterns, diamonds, circles and waves--perennial favorites that can be applied to every type of project, from sweaters to blankets. With full-color photos and expert explanations of the symbols and patterns, knitters can expand their knowledge of this elegant and classic style.

11 basic projects give you a chance to try some of these patterns right away. These gentle introductions include such accessories as:
  • A stripe-textured shawl
  • A short cowl
  • Handwarmers with a circle pattern
  • A versatile winter hat
  • And more
Japanese knitting guru Gayle Roehm introduces the patterns and explains the ins and outs of Japanese knitting. A handy index allows you to search for patterns by number of steps and stitches required, so you can shop from the intricacy side of the menu. A section on how to knit the symbols takes you step-by-step through the stitches used in this book.
