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 from the catwalks of the 2000s. 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 context.
