Bringing together profiles of 27 artist-crafters, this work does more than just document their creations. Each of the profiled knitters has contributed a project - a sweatshirt kimono, a mohair and metal belt, a hobo-style shoulder bag, a geodesic-patterned cap, as well as a teddy bear knit from fiberglass insulation.

Not all the items pictured have instructions, but this book is a delight to just gaze through. Lots of very avant-guarde designs that I wish I were skilled enough to tackle!

Not so much a book of patterns, as of artistic inspiration. Some designs are tasty; others, not so practical (though I, for one, am making the SUV-sized teddy bear, using only batts of pink insulation, and my own body.) But you want the philosophy of yarn bombing, crystals as a design model, and the appropriation of corporate logos? You got that here.

A few projects could actually be useful, but not the wedding dress nor the bathing suit.
