A Dictionary of Beautiful Openwork Patterns
Nihon Vogue & Gayle Roehm

Description

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

The 11 basic projects – a stripe-textured shawl, a short cowl, handwarmers with a circle pattern, a versatile winter hat and more – give you a chance to try some of these patterns right away.

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.
