About the book
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 fashion. With stunning new photography, Knitting draws on the V&A’s superlative collection of knitted fashions and artifacts to tell this story. Ranging from articles for everyday use to virtuoso examples of the knitter’s craft, including finely knit and embroidered silk stockings, intricate lacewear, and Victorian beaded bags, the book also includes knitted dresses from designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Julien Macdonald to inspire all those interested in this popular craft and industry.
