From ‘muffetees and comforters’ knitted for soldiers in the Crimea to men wearing beanie hats in present day Afghanistan, Joyce Meader presents a history of military knitting - non-uniform comforts such as socks, gloves and string vests sent from home. Illustrated with advertisements, knitting patterns and photographs, the book covers the kind of items needed, who made them, soldiers who knit for themselves, and anti-war and subversive knitting. Finally, there are eight patterns to knit, including one for poppies and barbed wire.
