Japanese Stitches Revealed by Wendy Bernard
Japanese stitch patterns are eye-catching and much sought after by
devotees, but before now, they often seemed out of reach, whether locked
behind Japanese only instructions or tangled up in
difficult-to-decipher illustrations. Japanese Stitches Unraveled offers
150 rare patterns inspired by these elusive and intricate Japanese
stitch designs, along with fully illustrated charts, familiar symbols,
and clear instructions for every single stitch.
Each stitch pattern receives Bernard’s unique four direction
makeover—top-down, bottom-up, back-and forth, and in-the-round. Bernard
also includes instructions for six garments as well as her famous
formulas for knitting without a pattern.
