Overview
This book offers a wholly new and unexpected angle on warfare, looking at the role of knitted garments in conflicts over the centuries. From the Crimea and Waterloo to the American Civil War and on into the many wars of the twentieth century, Knitskrieg reveals the surprising prevalence of knitted goods of all kinds in a soldier's kit. Joyce Meader shows us not just socks and vests, but splints, smoking caps, Lord Cardigan's famous sweater, and much more. It includes facsimile knitting patterns, as well, enabling today's knitters to bring a little bit of history to life.
