In this fascinating book, Sandy Black charts the development of knitting, from domestic handcraft to one of the most sophisticated computer controlled textile production processes used in high fashion. Using stunning new photography, Knitting draws on the V&A's superlative collection of knitted fashions and artefacts, ranging from commonplace articles of everyday use to virtuoso examples of the knitter's craft, including finely knit and embroidered silk stockings, intricate lacewear, Victorian beaded bags and knitted dresses from designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Julien Macdonald. It will inform and inspire all those interested in this popular craft and thriving industry.
