A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.\n\nWritten by Norah Gaughan, one of the most innovative and respected knitwear designers working today, Knitting Nature was an instant classic when it was released in hardcover in 2006, and it is now available at a must-have paperback price.\n\nIn Knitting Nature, Gaughan blends together the natural and artistic world with 39 stunning, fun-to-knit designs for women, men, and children. Among them are a skirt patterned after the hexagonal scales nature has used to cover a domed turtle's shell, a jacket whose collar grows in a spiral--much the same way a ram's horn does--and a tank top with leaves that grow the same way they do on a stem.\n\nAlso available from Norah Gaughan: Norah Gaughan's Knitted Cable Sourcebook, Comfort Knitting & Crochet: Babies & Toddlers, and Comfort Knitting & Crochet: Afghans.

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.
