Introduced by Kaffe Fassett, this illustrated history of knitwear surveys garments, styles, designers and manufacturers decade-by-decade, from cashmere under-vests in the early 1900s to wartime hand-knitting in the 1940s, and from 1950s twinsets by Pringle to evening dresses on 21st-century catwalks. The book covers all forms of knitted textile, whether hand-knits or machine-produced jersey, and describes the development of the technology of knitting as well as its social and cultural contexts.
