Tudor Roses Giveaway!

Tudor Roses by Alice Starmore, photography by Jade Starmore

The kind folks at Dover Publications have given us a copy of the newly released paperback version of the glorious Tudor Roses by Alice Starmore.

This is a paperback reprint of the exquisite Alice and Jade Starmore’s 2013 recreation of 1998’s Tudor Roses. 2013’s Tudor Roses had new sweaters and all new photography. The designs span the women of the Tudor dynasty from Elizabeth Woodville to Mary, Queen of Scots.

To say the sweaters and the photography are stunning is to just scratch the surface. This is a knitting book of sweaters so finely wrought that just looking at the pictures will excite and inspire you. Even if you never plan on knitting one, you will go back to look at the designs like they are fine art.

    Even if I don’t win, I’m probably going to end up buying this book anyway. The patterns in it are so, so gorgeous.

    I’ve been drooling over this colourwork book for a long time. And I am also in love with the textured knits, too!

    I am amazed by the skill level of some knitters. I love to see beautiful, intricate, challenging knitting. These appear to be the types of things which I aspire to do. I would love to have a copy of this book!

    Alice Starmore patterns are intimidating to me but the book may be the inspiration I need. So beautiful.
