The Typeknitting book shows all previous prototypic approaches to typographic knitting. Its central methodology lies on basic techniques and the construction of single letters prototypes.

Additional projects like pullovers, scarf, mittens or hat show specific use cases. This includes modified patterns by Helloyarn, Butzeria and Woollythoughts, as well as new patterns. As graphic ressources, the book contains 32 knittable typefaces from type foundries like Bold Monday, Emigre, Lineto, Nouvelle Noire and Typotheque.
