Product description

"Knitting Nature" is "geek chic" at its most fascinating and beautiful. Imagine a woman's pullover born of a fascination with logometric spirals (the spirals you see in rams' horns, seashells); a shawl inspired by the atomic structure of quasicrystals; and a man's pullover whose central motif resembles the patterns formed by chemical waves. In "Knitting Nature", Gaughan draws knitters into her creative process by explaining - in friendly, layman's terms - how she uses patterning in physics as inspiration and challenge, then hooks them with her sophisticated, classic designs, ready for them to reproduce following her step-by-step instructions.
