Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible Exploration with Gayle Roehm
From easy to brain-bending! We'll start with stitch pattern that gives you a lot of "bang for the buck"-it is lovely and relatively easy to knit. Then we'll move on to more challenging stitch patterns with patterning on both right- and wrong-side rows and some with complex combinations. You'll get plenty of practice with author Shida Himoti's's style and with the charts and symbols.
Note: You MUST be comfortable knitting from charts.
