From Meiju K-P comes Contrasts – Textured Knitting, a stunning debut containing 22 original patterns.


Meiju K-P’s patterns are filled with elaborate lace, beautiful cables and carefully finished details – and are also very fun to make. As a designer, Meiju combines challenging techniques with prioritising the knitting experience. Meiju’s debut book, Contrasts – Textured Knitting, contains 22 patterns across the 280 pages, with both charts and written instructions. This book includes pullovers, cardigans, scarves and hats in a delicate, 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 however the patterns include additional modifications to suit the knitter.

As a teenager, Meiju never knitted from patterns, preferring to create her own designs. Since then, knitwear design has become a passionate hobby and part-time work which has led to the publication of this striking debut. Meiju lives in Helsinki, Finland with her husband and three sons. With Contrasts, she hopes to spark new ideas for both beginners and more experienced knitters. This is a hardback edition available in English and Finnish. There is no digital download code available, however a separate ebook will be available through Laine's online shop.
