Spice up your needlework with this adventurous, irreverent, and fun guide featuring twelve projects inspired by the Kama Sutra—the classic illustrated handbook of sexual instruction—the perfect gift book for playful needle crafters.

Knit a variety of the most popular positions from the classic Kama Sutra, as well as a few of the more intriguing acrobatic poses with this frisky project book that is sure to get your creative juices flowing. All twelve projects include a witty overview highlighting quirky facts and information relating to each position, clear, easy-to-follow knitting patterns and detailed instructions for every stage, and gorgeous full-color photographs to help you visualize your progress, step by step.

In keeping with the lively spirit of the classic book of love, each project is given a different setting. Moving beyond the bedroom, naughty knitters can set their amorous couple in the back row at the movies, beside the fire in a cozy log cabin, in the hot tub, in an office closet, or camping under the stars. Here, too, are complete patterns and instructions for knitting a variety of delightful accessories to accompany each scenario, including miniature bags of popcorn, backpacks and hiking boots, tents and sleeping bags, as well as personal features such as hairstyles, glasses, and beards, and a selection of fun outfits, including lingerie, sweaters, dresses, cowboy hats, and socks.

A cheeky and light-hearted take on traditional knitting projects, Knit Your Own Kama Sutra is ideal for fun-loving crafters everywhere.

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.
