About the Author

Julie Cole has taught fashion design courses at Harper College, International Academy of Design and Technology and Mount Mary College, USA.


The book appears to be a thorough and comprehensive, covering all aspects of designing knit fabrics through patternmaking. The author has developed a knit patterning system that is unique. -- Catherine Stephenson, Art Institute of Portland, US
Topic is long overdue and very relevant. Knits are an integral part of student requirements in many courses. There is definitely a need for a textbook that covers this topic in depth. A spiral bound design makes sense for easy and useful reference. Overall, the author's approach is easy to follow and would help me to introduce knits in all classes. -- Mary McCarthy, IADT Orlando, US
This book offers a valuable insight into the complexities of working with stretch fabric for fashion garments. It is an ideal book for Knitwear students who regularly have to adapt pattern blocks in order to accommodate the varying degrees of stretch within their fabrics. -- Juliana Sissons, Nottingham Trent University, UK
It is comprehensive book taking the subject from the basic knit structure of the fabric right up to fabrication. There is nothing like it in print. -- Luz Pascal * Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), USA *
