She’s back. Madame Thérèse Defarge, a character in the book A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, worked the names of the condemned into her knitting as she sat near the ever-active revolutionary guillotines. But Dickens never described what Madame Defarge was knitting.
As in the beloved first volume in this series, this book brings together a host of knitting (and weaving!) talent to imagine what their beloved fictional characters would knit and wear. From Tristan and Iseult to Jane Bennet to Miss Marple, characters from many of your favorite books finally get the knitwear they deserve.
“I loved these essays and patterns! Fans of the first book will not be disappointed.” — Marie Irshad, KnitCast podcast
“This wonderful collection of essays provides a delicious narrative for the companion patterns, and the patterns bring color to the classic stories that inspire their design. Together, patterns and essays bring a fresh perspective on old friends, breathing new life into classics I thought I knew well. The patterns are wonderfully inspired, such that knitting and reading are brought together in a unique way where each adds depth to the other.” — Sally Holt, Managing Partner, Create2Thrive LLP
