Knitting Architecture : 20 Patterns Exploring Form, Function, and Detail
by Tanis Gray and Gray Tanis




Overview -

Explore the true foundations of knitting design: construction, form following function, stability, and ornamentation.

The parallels between knitting a sweater and constructing a building seem obvious when considered. Sweaters suspend from yokes and shoulders; vertical planes are shaped to provide fit and allow movement; necklines, sleeves, and hems are adapted for specific purposes. Stitch patterns and textures elaborate design themes, and new and unusual materials can be used to striking effect.

Tanis Gray has curated a collection of designs from some of today's most innovative designers, all inspired by architectural themes. From accessories based on art-nouveau ironwork to a sweater that mimics Bauhaus style to a dress based on Greek sculpture, Knitting Architecture celebrates design through history.
