Construction Knitting: Knitwear Design with Geometric Shapes

Nikki Gabriel

Become the co-designer of your own knitwear, with Construction Knitting.
Using a combination of flat and drape patternmaking, Nikki Gabriel's easy-to-follow technique takes an accumulative approach to garment making, assembling knitwear from individually crafted geometric shapes. Readers are guided through each stage: from creating and assembling the shapes to adapting your garments to fit your unique style. Section one covers knitting techniques for fabric structure and composition, along with yarn specifications, while section two delves into the methodology behind construction knitting.
With photographic and illustrated demonstrations, easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, and clear hand-knitting methods, Construction Knitting is well-suited to students, designers and amateur knitters alike.
