“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.

Starmore has taught and lectured extensively throughout Britain, Europe, and the United States. She has written 16 books and countless magazine articles.
