    This piece originally appeared in the fall issue of Wilder Quarterly and was written Jeremy Lewis, the founder of Garmento.

    The sweater — that classic wardrobe staple, that most essential item of cold-weather dressing, that object of tradition and craft simultaneously affording a sense of comfort and tactile delight. Perhaps as old as any other textile art, the sweater has become integral to our dress, a perennial favorite for both the practically minded as well as the stylistically oriented. Herein lies a survey or sorts, a closer look into the wonderful world of knits, a study of their history and their technique, each as rich and nuanced as the next.
