"Like pointillist paintings, Isager's designs rely on the detail you can only get at a fine gauge." --Clara Parkes, editor, "Knitter's Review," and author, "The Knitter's Book of Yarn" Japan is known for its sense of style, from the classic beauty of a ceremonial kimono to the edgy street trends worn by teens. This collection picks up a variety of influences to create a lovely and wearable collection, which stands out from the crowd. Each of the 12 knits has been inspired by a different month in Japan, and each is flanked by photos of the month, giving you a glimpse into the world which inspired the designs. Ideal for an adventurous knitter, the complex patterns use techniques that will stretch your skills and challenge your needles, from colourwork to entrelac. We love the clever construction and delicacy of the March pattern: 'The Fan' was inspired by the Girls' Day Festival, pretty and pink, and the lacy fronts look like an open fan. It's a far cry from the August pattern. 'Summer in Tokyo' is a complex stranded colourwork design in hot and cool colours inspired by traditional tatami mat designs. Marianne Isager has managed to create patterns with a distinctly Japanese feel which wouldn't look out of place on the British high street. You'll spot traditional aran stitches nestled alongside distinctly Japanese elements to create knits which will turn heads and shake down a rain of compliments from knitters and non-knitters alike. Marianne's use of shape and colour makes this an inspiring collection, and you may find these pieces make you rethink your wardrobe - or book a holiday in the land of the rising sun.-Simply KnittingVom Verlag:
