In this collection of 15 sweaters for women and men, New York City costume designer and pattern maker Mathew Gnagy highlights unique construction methods, focusing on knitting sideways or in directions other than traditional top-down or bottom-up patterns. Unlike most sideways knots, which tend to be simplified versions of more traditionally constructed patterns, Gnagy's knits offer innovative shaping, patterns, and fashion-forward silhouettes, resulting in pieces that are stylish, lively, and easy to wear.

"The garments in this book are more sculptural than most knitted garments.... The book starts with a short introduction to directional knitting, tips that Mathew Gnagy has learned through experience—row gauge, blocking, increasing and decreasing and assembling your garment. The sweaters are striking in their unusual look and shape, modern with clean slim-fitting lines. They are knit mostly from worsted weight yarn, giving an added visual weight and structure.... Spinners take note: these sweaters would be a great way to showcase handspun yarns."—Knitty.com
