A hipster pastime, a high-fashion showpiece, a social activity, a simple hat to keep you warm, or a trendy bag to show off to friends—knitting is an incredibly versatile craft, conjuring up memories of grandmothers gathering 'round the fire even as it has undergone a major revival in the world of high fashion. With stunning new photography, Knitting draws on the V&A's superlative collection to chart the development of the craft, from domestic handcraft to one of the most sophisticated computer-controlled textile production processes in use today. Commonplace articles are featured alongside masterful examples of the knitter's craft, including finely knit and embroidered silk stockings, intricate lacewear, Victorian beaded bags, and knitted dresses from designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Julien Macdonald. This unique chronicle will inspire all those interested in knitting as art, craft, and thriving industry.
