About Knitting ArchitectureThere are many parallels between knitting a sweater and constructing a building: both of these processes rely on an idea, a blueprint or schematic, math, materials and a little bit of inspiration. Knitwear designer Tanis Gray not only proves this idea, but also highlights the true roots of knitting design: construction, form following function, stability and ornamentation in this new book. The book boasts designs from Ann Weaver, Olga Buraya-Kefelian, Kirsten Kapur, Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Veera Välimäki.
