About This Book
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. More than just a pattern book, What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit? is a treasure of links, essays, and designs to entertain your hands AND your mind.
In its 200+ pages, you’ll find more than 25 knitting patterns (and one weaving pattern!) designed to delight your inner bibliophile.
