This grand book, rich with content and visuals, reviewed in our Winter 2011 issue currently on sale, is one of the most important knitting books of the decade. Here’s the review, excerpted from the same issue:
Diagonal Knitting: A Different Slant (Schoolhouse Press)
by Katharine Cobey
In the old days books were published when someone had something really important to say, something with a purpose that could shake things up. This treasure of a book goes beyond patterns. It is a work of art. It explores diagonal knitting from the core, with beautiful photography and illustrations on every page. With great technique, rich history, and visuals, this book is sure to become an American classic. It is a unique textbook with a purpose, making you wish it was printed in hard cover.
Here are some photos from the book:
