Description - Knitting Architecture by Tanis Gray

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.
