Explore a new angle on knitting. Emerging designer Mathew Gnagy has created a fresh collection of 15 sweaters for men and women that explore the possibilities of knitting off the axis in new angles other than traditional top-down or bottom-up constructions. Knitting Off the Axis. Each of the patterns is designed in a one-of-a-kind way, focusing on knitting sideways or in an untraditional direction. Knitting at different angles gives these knit projects unique shaping, visual interest, and fashion-forward silhouettes. You’ll love the new techniques and challenge of knitting sideways.
Most sideways knits tend to be simplified, less dynamic versions of more traditionally constructed patterns, but Mathew has brought you uniquely textured stitch patterns. The result is knitting projects that are classic, stylish, and lively. The book is divided into three easy-to-follow sideways knitting categories: Truly Sideways, Mostly Sideways, and Every-Which-Way with additional instruction on short rows, internal shaping, and more.
Knitting Off the Axis offers everything you need to incorporated clever knit combinations and maximize your design possibilities with sideways knitting.
