Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book explores the mathematical ideas of garter stitch knitting. It takes you on a journey from knitting a plain garter stitch square, then a triangle, then trapezoids, divide squares, divided rectangles and more. It will teach you how to knit both 2D and 3D objects, with both straight edges and on the bias. It goes into great depth about the character of the fabric, and how each shape contributes to the all-way stretch. If you are amazed at Elizabeth Zimmerman's baby surprise sweater, then buckle your seatbelt, for many of the garments made in this book take those ideas to the next level. This is not just a pattern book, but a treasure trove of information and ingenuity. Mrs. Woods was a knitting engineer.
