Pattern Description:

What Would Madame Defarge Knit?: Creations Inspired By Classic Characters, edited by Heather Ordover, offers 21 patterns/projects and accompanying essays, with something for everyone, including 4 crocheted patterns, detailed directions for two types of dyeing, and even directions for light-up pattern pieces using e-textiles. Jen Minnis, who created all the art for the book, also contributed a one-of-a-kind project that will allow you to make a Peter Pan-themed shadow puppet theatre at home.

WWMDfK? is unusual in a number of ways. First, the book has its own website, which will contain live links to additional material that can't be contained in a print book, such as video tutorials, additional images, and more.

Second, the designers and contributors will be earning royalties from every sale not a single, low, one-time-only payment for their work.

And third, by designing the book as a black-and-white Victorian era pastiche, complete with "woodcuts" and hand-drawn illustrations, we've kept production costs down, which means a lower price for you and better royalties for the contributors.
