Not a pattern book, but a fantastic book of knitted art projects,
This review is from: Knitting Art: 150 Innovative Works from 18 Contemporary Artists: Expanding the Boundaries of Knitting (Hardcover)
The works of art in this book range from ones you could possibly try copying to the truly inspiring works that have taken many weeks of work. They range from staggering to hilarious, and there should be something in here to fit all tastes.
The book, alongside introductions and glossary etc, has 18 sections. Each section showcases a designer, tells you about them and their works, and includes various photos of their works. Some of these may be familiar if you have attended knitting exhibitions, others wont be. Most use yarn, but others use metal or even plastic to build sculptural pieces.
This book really opens your eyes to the possibilities of knitting beyond the simple jumper, and would make a great gift for knitters and art lovers alike.
