"It is the perfect blend of fashion, photography, English history, and knitting " -- Petals to Picots "A gorgeous book filled with classic-looking sweater patterns." -- Canary Knits Featuring new and reimagined garments based on the original edition published in 1998, this volume of Tudor Roses presents gorgeous knitwear inspired by the historical female figures of the Tudor Dynasty. Through garment design, Alice Starmore and her daughter Jade tell the stories of fourteen women connected with the Tudor dynasty. They weave a narrative around the known facts of their subjects' lives using photography, art, and the only medium through which the Tudor women could leave a lasting physical record in their world--needlework. Tudor Roses includes fourteen patterns for sweaters and other wearables that follow the chronological order of the Tudor dynasty. A different model portrays each of the Tudor women, from Elizabeth Woodville, grandmother of Henry VIII, through Mary, Queen of Scots. The stunning design and photography appeals to knitters seeking designs that offer an attractive balance of historic and modern elements.

Описание: "I think I was lucky in the timing -- I learned to knit just when your book first came out. The other books on the subject seemed to be aimed at people who already knit. . . . and it] is the only one I read for pleasure, not just for patterns." -- Gordon Reid, www.ganseys.com "For years knitters have been pining for the return of Michael Pearson's lovely book, Traditional Knitting, complete with historical notes, charts, photos and patterns for Fair Isle, Guernsey, and Aran sweaters. Once again, our wish is granted by dear Dover." -- Meg Swansen, Schoolhouse Press "A fascinating and well researched book." -- Evening Press After visiting the remote fishing villages of Scotland and England, Michael Pearson compiled this extensive record of unique patterns. His sources include oral traditions, documents, family albums, and photos. Pearson combines a social history of the villages and the living history of these crafts with detailed patterns and practical instructions for knitters. For this revised and expanded edition, the author has added an extensive selection of new pattern charts and full knitting instructions, making this essential work even more valuable to lovers of traditional knitting. "Great collection of patterns. So much history. I learned so many interesting things. The pictures were amazing and definitely my favorite part. A history and knitting lesson wrapped up in one book." -- Debbie's Bookcase
