Contemporary Knitting for Textile ArtistsBook - 2007
Innovative hand-knitting techniques in rows and rounds for the adventurous fibre artist and craft maker, worked in diverse and unusual materials, such as wire, paper yarn, plant materials and plastics, found and recycled materials, rope and elastics. Samples are backed up with in-depth information relating to technique, fibres and materials and their unique properties. Wonderfully illustrated with the best contemporary knitted textiles and knitted jewellery available today. With the current revival in hand knitting still in full flow, this book explores traditional two- and three-dimensional knitting techniques in new and innovative ways.
