This book was a lovely surprise when it arrived. Inside it takes you through a year in Japan month by month with a garment to knit for each one. I can knit complicated arans but there are items here that I would love to try but do seem extremely complicated. Fortunately there are simple explanations and easy to follow instructions that mean I could have a go but I would probably need to be a bit like Robert the Bruce and his spider.....if at first you don't succeed....apart from that there are other garments that I know I am capable of making with no problems, there is a beautiful cardigan with a maple leaf design that I want to make for myself as well as another with a Stone Garden theme. All in all a beautiful knitting book illustrated with beautiful photographs of both the garments and japan itself. Not for the beginner but if you love knittting and want something different then this is the book for you.

I bought this book because I was interested in the pattern of "the fan" cardigan. The book is very nice and also the photos, but the other patterns don't interest me and I really don't see where there are "japanese inspired".

The patterns are well written, with clear instructions and easy charts. Lovely photos with lots of different bits of the garments showing. Fab book, going to knit everything in it, starting with August!

When I bought this book the 'look inside' option was not available. If it had been then I would not have got it as there are only one or two patterns that I liked.

Inspiring designs and fascinating to read what was behind each one. Even if not knitting the garments, I'm fairly sure I will put the patterns to good use.
