Japanese Knitting

There is much discussion on some Ravelry groups about this
new technique in the world of knitting.

What makes it so special?  Isn't this knitting
like all knitting?
Hitomi Shida original designs and 
variations on every imaginable classic stitch
result in intricate patterns that form
the basis for beautiful and unique knitted fashions.  Although
the book is written in Japanese, it has been translated by
Gayle Roehm

This is for experienced knitters who would like some adventure
in their knitting.


Deborah Tomasello gives us her  Cowl Number 46, 104

it has the signature twisted stitches and raised design common to Japanese lace patterns. can be knitted and worn as either a scarf or a cowl. This project is a lacy, fun piece to work, and it is full of luxurious drape. The design includes a buttoned closure (but no buttonholes!) so it can be buttoned and worn as a cowl, wrapped around the neck twice before buttoning to be worn as a neck warmer, or left unbuttoned and worn as a scarf. So versatile! It is light, and it can be knit in any fiber so it can be worn in any climate. Gauge is not an issue. Want your cowl larger? Work more pattern repeats. Pattern contains written instructions as well as charts. Use cotton or wool, fingering or worsted weight yarn and small or large needles. All choices are yours!
Check it out on Ravelry.
She is also leading this Socks for Spring MKAL on her
