Japanese Craft Books: In English!

Posted on by MK Carroll

Chronicle Books, it seems, has taken note of the rising popularity of Japanese craft books - they have published three books of patterns translated into English, and have plans for more (Woolly Embroidery and Fuzzy Felted Friends are will be released later this month). I haven't had a chance to look through these books, but I recognized the projects on the covers of Lacy Crochet and Amigurumi. The prices are reasonable and I'm putting them on my Amazon wishlist, so hopefully I'll be able to review these in more depth.

Amazon is still carrying the English translation of Ondori Basic Knit as well.
