Hand-knitted scarf fun back [Paperback]
by Shimada Toshiyuki (Author)
103pages - 2010/10/8
ISBN-10: 4277430686

I haven't bought many books this year from Japan. Some how most of the titles and covers just haven't excited me that much. This was one of the books though I had to have right away. I was so excited when I saw the cover of this book and looked at the view inside on Amazon.jp.

The elongated knit scarf never took on such beautiful shapes. And to be honest I am really surprise that ravelry isn't just full of scarfs knitted from the pages within.

So here are just a few more photos from inside the book.


  1. Those are gorgeous. I'm going to have to see if I can find it. Thanks for the heads up. One question though - how do you read the patterns if it is a Japanese book? Do they use standard "knit speak" or do they have translated versions?

  2. Wow--those cabled scarves are fabulous. I'd probably never knit them, but thanks for the eye candy!

    And Happy New Year!

  3. Oh my god! I would love to have this book, but I can't even order it. If one does not read Japanese, can you still follow the instruction in this book?
