Knitwear is one of the most exciting areas in fashion today, where craft and digital processes collide to create desirable, innovative clothing. Fashion Knitwear showcases 40 designers around the world, including Missoni, Sibling and Sonia Rykiel, who use hand and machine knitting, crochet and macrame, as well as knit fabrics such as jersey, to produce fashion garments. Each profile delves into the designer's practice, inspiration and career path and includes inspiring images of their work. Interviews explore approaches to knitwear and how different knit stitches, techniques and yarns are used to create colour, pattern and texture. This book will appeal to anyone interested in knitwear, from hobby knitters looking for inspiration to students and fashion designers wanting a current overview of the scene.
