9781782213130: Pride & Preju-Knits: 12 Genteel Knitting Projects Inspired by Jane Austen

Knit your way through the incredible world of Jane Austen’s beloved novels, from Pemberley to Mansfield Park, and create your favorite Austen characters, including Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, Emma Woodhouse, and more with this delightful collection of twelve knitting projects from the famed craftsman, Austen enthusiast, and author of Knit Your Own Kama Sutra, Trixie von Purl.

Knitting maven Trixie von Purl helps knitters and Austen fans create the world of Jane Austen like never before with this inventive and unique craft book. Featuring a high-class art, Pride & Preju-knits gathers together the best sassy heroines and brooding heroes from all six of Austen’s beloved and widely acclaimed novels, including Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, Emma Woodhouse and Mr. Knightley, and Marianne Dashwood and Mr. Willoughby.

Following the complete pattern instructions for stitching each character, knitters can also recreate scenes involving these handsome Regency ladies and gentlemen. Capture Mr. Darcy’s proposal to Elizabeth, the Netherfield Park ball, and Willoughby rescuing Marianne in the rain. Engage your yarn skills to fabricate extravagant stately homes, opulent tea parties, the rolling English countryside, and other genteel settings that are the essence of Austen. Pride & Preju-knits also features a wide-variety of additional patterns for bonnets, breeches, lacy parasols, and other charming accessories.

Each scene featured in Pride & Preju-knits is accompanied by Trixie’s own hilarious interpretation, clear, easy-to-follow knitting patterns, and instructions to guide readers through every stage of the project. Specially commissioned photographs accompany the instructions throughout so that readers can easily visualize every step.

About the Author:

Trixie von Purl was born Patricia Purlton and came to fame in the 1960s when she had to flee to India after a scandal involving a fling with a famously full-lipped rock musician of the time (hint: he wasn't in The Beatles). It was in India that she became fascinated with the Kama Sutra, and for a brief time changed her name to "Indrani," believing herself to be the incarnation of the Queen of Heaven. Trixie eventually moved to California and turned her attention to the burlesque scene, teaching today's well-known burlesque stars everything they know. This is when her love of knitting got the better of her, and she started to combine the craft with her once-favorite subject. Trixie now lives in Paris and can often be found entertaining knitting salons with stories about her colorful past.

Review:

“Awesomely-intricate, to the point of beautiful weirdness...” (Elle)
