Itoami Plants: Japanese Craft (out of print)
Beautiful crochet projects for accessories such as necklaces, earrings, hair ornaments, brooches and accents for scarves or socks. Inspired by the delicate elegance of plants, the crochet is intricate but surprisingly easy. The book contains stunning photography and easy-to-follow diagrams and instructions. Japanese Craft books are hugely popular, with hundreds of blogs and online craft-communities devoted to their unique aesthetic and meticulous detail. Previously only accessible to Japanese-speakers and those with sewing skills advanced enough to attempt to interpret the patterns with no instruction, this translation will appeal to an already-devoted following and also engage with a whole new market.
