"Knitwear Fashion Design it's a beautiful book, and the price is very affordable for students./..../ as an illustration book for knitwear, it's really excellent for showing how to render various details, as well as the possible cloth variations within knitwear. I appreciated seeing current designers in the first section including Sandra Backlund - the definitely made me assured that the research was current/.../The sections 5 (Accessoirs) & 6 (Rewamping the Basics) are especially useful, I think, in helping design students to create their own original designs. Seeing all the possibilities in section 5 as well as how to draw them makes this book an excellent resource. And demonstrating how to rethink basic designs in section 6 is very important for students to understand." Rachel A. MacGillivray, New Brunswick College of Craft & Design
