Knitting Patterns Book 250

This book is probably my favourite knitting book ever. ( The links in YesAsia and Amazon Japan are listed on the right side of the page).




I did a swatch for the cover pattern - following a discussion on the knittinginjapan yahoo group - just to see how it goes. It's pattern 086, page 40.



Pretty much straight forward, but I did a mistake on row 12 - it's a WS row with a kind of 'unexpected' change in pattern.
Apart from this, there are no particular challenges, it will only require an ambitious beginner to use it.
And I guess It will only work well with a yarn with a very good stitch definition.

Looks like flowers and butterflies to me.

Hellokitty165 was going to try this in lace weight, I think... That would also look very pretty, but quite different. Now I'm tempted to try it too! But I just cast on for a hat...

As a recent convert to the Japanese patterns can you tell me (as I haven't seen this book before) - are the stitch patterns easy to read?

Hi donyale,
some are very easy, some will require more experience. There is a lot of help available in the knittinginjapan group and the japanese group in ravelry so I would not worry about it :)
