9780062352002: Knit Your Own Kama Sutra: Twelve Playful Projects for Naughty Knitters

Today’s knitters may be spoilt for choice when it comes to cutesy project books, but even the most enthusiastic needle crafters are likely to become tired of the same old dogs, cats, and farmyard animals after a while. Providing a delightfully refreshing antidote to this surfeit of cutesiness, Knit Your Own Kama Sutra offers a saucy and subversive take on the traditional knitting projects book, and is guaranteed to prove a resounding hit among jaded crafters everywhere.

Focusing on a variety of the most popular positions from the classic Kama Sutra guide—as well as a few of the more acrobatic ones—each of the book’s 12 projects begins with a witty, light- hearted overview offering quirky facts and information relating to the position. These are followed by clear, easy-to-follow knitting patterns and instructions that help to guide the reader through every stage of the project down to the last little detail.

Specially commissioned photographs accompany the instructions throughout so that readers can visualize each and every step.

To add an extra element of fun, each project is also given a different setting—in addition to the bedroom, readers can choose to place their amorous couple in the back row at the movies, before the fire in a cosy log cabin, in the hot tub, or even make them members of the ‘mile high’ club! Complete patterns and instructions are given for knitting up a wide variety of delightful accessories to accompany each scenario, including everything from mini cartons of popcorn to little knitted backpacks and hiking boots. The 12 saucy couples featured in the book are all different to one another, allowing knitters to have fun with a variety of features such as hairstyles, glasses, and beards, as well as a selection of outfits, including everything from frilly suspender belts to snazzy briefs (and socks!)

Review:

'A British knitting expert has produced a new manual entitled Knit Your Own Kama Sutra. Published under the pseudonym Trixie Von Purl, the book features patterns for a knitted couple posing in 12 positions, all based on the erotic Indian text. Each one is given a different setting, form hot tub to cinema auditorium - and the patterns include props such as minature popcorn holders. Author Geraldine Warner, who has also written conventional knitting guides, says she spent five months researching her book "I always like to challenge myself in terms of techniques, and I think that comes through in the patterns" she said.' 

( The Week)

"In the mood for something cheeky? How about about new book Knit Your Own Kama Sutra? Yes, you heard right!"

( Knit Today)

"Rarely has a book provoked so many giggles in the Crafts office as Knit Your Own Karma Sutra. Billed as 'a refreshing antidote to boring needlework', the book offers instructions (both in yarn and in reality) for 12 sexual positions from the Karma Sutra, with such accessories as photocopiers, picnic baskets and chickens included."  

( Crafts)

"The best guide to purring - and purling - your way through the bedroom and beyond."

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.
