about

This book offers a wholly new and unexpected angle on warfare, looking at the role of knitted garments in conflicts over the centuries. From the Crimea and Waterloo to the American Civil War and on into the many wars of the twentieth century, Knitskrieg reveals the surprising prevalence of knitted goods of all kinds in a soldier's kit. Joyce Meader shows us not just socks and vests, but splints, smoking caps, Lord Cardigan's famous sweater, and much more. It includes facsimile knitting patterns, as well, enabling today's knitters to bring a little bit of history to life.
 
Joyce Meader is an expert on historic knits, providing advice and reproduction clothing for historical television and film productions.

Editorial Reviews

"Filled with a lot of great photos and facsimiles of old posters, leaflets, patterns, and other items. Knitskrieg also contains patterns to knit facsimiles of some of these knitted comforts and some contemporary photos of the items in use. There are lots and lots of interesting odds and ends—facsimiles of old patterns and even songs about wartime knitting! It’s a fascinating read."
