This is not a book for a beginning knitter or the unadventurous knitter -- there are stitches in it that are unique to Japanese patterns.
Thank you so very much for this book, Hitomi.
The text is in simplified Chinese (not Japanese) but if like me you can't read it, an intermediate or advanced knitter should still have no problem following the charts. However, it is probably not a good purchase if you don't like working from charts. There are some unusual symbols in some charts, which are explained in more detail at the back of the book. Again, if you cannot read the explanatory text, the step-by-step drawings for these are clear & easy to follow.
Note: purl stitches are shown as blank squares in the charts.
There is little, if any, overlap with any US or European stitch dictionaries readily available. Many of the patterns in this book are actually combinations of lace, cable & twisted-stitch elements which you will recognize individually but will likely not have seen in these combinations. In some cases this does make for large repeats.
A large proportion of the patterns include yarn-overs (210/250) - which is not to say that all of them are very hole-y.
I'm delighted with the book's quality & content. It is very expensive, presumably due to being imported, but a great addition to the library of a serious knitter.
