(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The ultimate Japanese knitting and crochet stitch bible-now available for English-speaking crafters!

1000 Japanese Knitting & Crochet Stitches is a treasure trove of needlecraft patterns and motifs for knitters and crocheters seeking to create and better understand the infinite variety of their craft.

The classic compendium of Japanese stitches is finally available to Western audiences! The Japanese reference work is beloved by knitters the world over, and this English version will allow even more crafters to enjoy these techniques.

This dictionary includes 700 original knitting stitch patterns and 300 original crochet patterns that have inspired many modern Japanese knitwear designs. You'll find classic lacy, cable, Aran, Fair Isle, Nordic, ethnic patterns; geometric, botanical and animal motifs; and so much more. This one-stop reference has detailed steps and stitch diagrams showing how to execute over 60 different knitting stitches and over 40 different crochet stitches. Each pattern is charted with a delineation of the pattern repeat.

Like Tuttle's other bestselling knitting dictionaries-including Hitomi Shida's Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible—this one includes an introduction by Japanese knitting guru Gayle Roehm, which helps non-Japanese knitters navigate the differences between the Japanese and Western styles of knitting and crochet.
