What Would Madame Defarge Knit? eBook

Creations Inspired by Classic Characters
What Would Madame Defarge Knit? is a new book of crafty patterns edited by Heather Ordover of the popular podcast CraftLit, written and designed by the good people who bring you Cast-on, March Hare Yarns, Jen Minnis Artworks, WeaveZine and WeaveCast, Silk Road Socks, Gardiner Yarn Works, and Crochet Compulsive. It all started back in 2007, while listening to A Tale of Two Cities on CraftLit. Not far into the book, WWMDfK? became a rallying call for t-shirts, knitting, and fun. And now—patterns!

With 20+ patterns/projects and accompanying essays, there’s 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. ebook, 201 pages, Cooperative Press
