25 Serenely Beautiful Patterns Inspired by Japanese DesignBook - 2009
Haiku, the graceful and evocative form of Japanese poetry, celebrates nature in all its simple, subtle and unobtrusive beauty. In Haiku Knits, the texture of a felted skirt, the pattern made by a series of twisted cables or the casual elegance of an asymmetric garment celebrates this simplicity. Author Tanya Alpert, a knitwear designer and fibre artist, presents 25 simple, modern garments and accessories inspired by Japanese design, featuring innovative elements and beautiful fibres. Alpert introduces each pattern by explaining the inspiration behind it and how she incorporated it into her design. Illustrated with stunning photographs, this beautiful book also includes an appendix of essential techniques.
