About the Author

Michiyo is a household name among Japanese and Western knitters.

Gayle Roehm has lived in Japan for many years where she studied the language and taught at knitting workshops around the country.


"In the first Japanese needlework book to be translated into English, American knitters are introduced to the height of Tokyo fashion in knitwear." -Publishers Weekly
"Japanese Knitting: Patterns for Sweaters, Scarves and More is a book that every knitter and crocheter should have! [...] The textural elements make [Michiyo's] knitwear styles polished and flattering, whether worn layered or as stand-alone pieces."
"The book itself is beautifully presented, the photography is stylish, and the designs are simple with interesting shapes, textures, colorwork and construction. You would be hard pressed to find a design you didn't like!" -Skein Yarn blog
"This book, brilliantly translated by Gayle Roehm, makes 23 of Michiyo's patterns available to Westerners. Her combinations of texture, pattern and shape make the designs unique without being overly dramatic." -Retailing Insight
"All 23 patterns featured in this book have an unmistakable minimalistic aesthetics that we often see in Japanese designs. Several projects have an unusual construction that allows them to be worn in a few different ways."
"I'm delighted to recommend this book to other knitting and crochet enthusiasts-particularly to advanced crafters who are looking for unique and challenging projects that can't be found anywhere else." -Knitting and Crochet blog
