After much time and angst, the What Would Madame Defarge Knit INDIVIDUAL patterns are here (or on Ravelry, actually)!!!
Also now available: Volume 2 in the WWMDfK series: What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit?
All patterns from this book are now also available as individual downloads.
Madame Thérèse Defarge, a character in the book A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, works the names of the condemned into her knitting as she sits near the ever-active revolutionary guillotines.
Don’t worry — you’re safe with us!
WWMDfK? contains 21 knit and crochet patterns, as well as essays
and projects inspired by classic literature, including Charlotte Brontë, Frank L. Baum, Jane Austen and of course, Dickens himself.
“I love this book! A delight in literature, crafts, friendship, and creativity is channeled through original knitting patterns. It took me on a journey of sharing, joy, discovery, and whimsy that left me
exhilarated. It’s like CraftLit in a book!”
