Andean Folk Knitting is a study of the colorful knitted accessories made in Peru and Bolivia. Andean knitwear includes numerous styles of caps, leggings, and small bags. This finely-crafted knitting is often done by men, and is an important textile tradition of the region. Many knitted items are presented within their cultural context, and information is provided on regional design characteristics. For the knitter, several unusual techniques are described, and detailed instructions are given for ten projects. More than 100 regional design motifs are charted. The text is profusely illustrated with line drawings, color plates, and black-and-white photos.
