Description

A fractal is a complex geometric figure made up of patterns that repeat themselves on increasing, or decreasing scales. In nature they are found in fern leaves and corals. In this book, there found in the pattern for a scarf. The pentagon is a familiar five-sided figure that in nature can be spotted in the starfish or sand dollar; in this book it composes itself in a pullover and a shawl. Knitting nature is a book created by one of the most innovative designers working today. Combining biology with art Norah Gaughan has compiled thirty-nine fabulous designs inspired by patterns in nature. With each design Gaughan first explains where in nature the pattern can be found, such as the spiral in a ram's horn or seashell, then with step-by-step instructions she shows how she rendered that pattern in a skirt or tunic or coat. Complete with exquisitely beautiful photographs, this sophisticated book is truly one of a kind.
