Abstract

Designing a Knitwear Collection, 2nd Edition, is an essential and comprehensive overview of the knitting design and development process. Featuring more than 475 color images, emerging fashion designers will find inspiration from the work of featured knitwear designers and practical information to design their own knitwear collection. The book follows the history of the industry to present day, introducing yarn and stitch basics, knitting methods, and machinery. It explores the process of preparing the design package from initial concept and sketches to specifications of samples and documents for production—through the presentation of a final collection. Updates to this edition include advances in technology in the knitwear industry, expanded coverage of sample development, and more than 50% new images including new designer profiles and current knitwear designs.
