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 better understand the infinite variety of their craft. First issued in Japanese in 1992 (and now out of print), this classic compendium is finally available for Western audiences. The Japanese reference work is beloved by knitters the world over, and this version will allow even more crafters to enjoy these techniques.

This dictionary includes 700 original knitting stitch patterns and 300 original crochet patterns that are sure to inspire many new 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 knitting stitches and over 40 different crochet stitches. Each pattern is charted with a delineation of the pattern repeat. Like Tuttle's other best-selling knitting bibles including Hitomi Shida's Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible this one includes an introduction by Japanese Knitting guru Gayle Roehm which helps non-Japanese knitters to navigate the differences between Japanese and Western styles of knitting and crochet.
