Meiju K-P's debut book, Contrasts – Textured Knitting, contains 22 patterns, including pullovers, cardigans, scarves and hats in a soft, delicate and feminine style. They have been designed by Meiju to be functional and fit well. The pullovers and cardigans are mostly knitted from the top down, making their size easy to adjust.
The designer's patterns are filled with elaborate lace, beautiful cables and carefully finished details – but at the same time they are fun to make. As a designer, Meiju likes to combine challenging techniques with a pleasant knitting experience.
Meiju lives in Helsinki, Finland with her husband and three sons. Even as a teenager, she never knitted from patterns, preferring to create her own designs. Later, knitwear design became a passionate hobby and part-time work. She hopes to spark new ideas for beginners and more experienced knitters.
This publication contains:
- 280 pages

Beautiful book, photos and patterns are lovely. Truthfully I'd happily knit any one of these but I think Solina will be first. So glad I finally decided to buy this book as no one picked up on my pre Christmas hints
