Friends, Romans, yarn lovers: lend us your ears. For this third installment in the much-loved What Would Madame Defarge Knit? series, Heather Ordover again brings you an eclectic and beautiful collection of knitting and crochet designs inspired by great literature.
This time, the focus is all on the Bard. Whether it’s a necklace fit for Cleopatra, a bed jacket to soothe Lady Macbeth’s tormented soul, or yellow-gartered stockings worthy of Malvolio, these designs cleverly tap into Shakespeare’s writings. As in the other books in this series, each contributor has written an illuminating essay that talks about how the Bard inspired their design. These are such knits as dreams are made on.
