Overview

The Jean Moss Book of Sculptured Knits presents an elegant array of patterns for hand knitwear from leading designer, Jean Moss. Inspired by the decorative art of the twentieth century: architecture, theater, furniture, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, fashion and posters, these 40 projects will fire the imagination of both beginner and experienced knitter. To celebrate the knitted stitch for the Millennium, Jean Moss has created an original collection of knitwear using a variety of sculptured stitches, ranging from simple knits and purls through creative cables to more intricate lacy arans. The collection draws on the flamboyance of the Belle Epoque, the elegant simplicity of Art Deco, the hard-edged geometry of Op Art and the naive symbolism of Ethnic design. Included are garments for men, women, and children plus items for home decor.

Editorial Reviews

Carol Labranche
Jean Moss is an English designer and it shows. English work almost always has a closer relationship to clothing design than does American. It is usually more detailed, more rather than less. Moss is very, very, very English...Production, meaning color photos, layout, pattern instructions are all fine. This is a pretty book filled with pretty sweaters. But if you are not in tune with the English sensibillity, you may find these designs a bit too ladylike. The one on the front cover is especially nice. If you like it, look inside for more.
