Albert Einstein proved to us that E=MC2. Marilyn Monroe convinced us that gentlemen prefer blondes and that diamonds are a girl's best friend. Elvis Presley showed us how to swivel our hips to old-time rock 'n' roll. Through science, pop culture and arts, all of them have become the objects of great attention and devotion by fans everywhere. They are, in essence, icons of the 20th century. From an Argentinian revolutionist to a scientific genius to a rock 'n' roll band hailing from Liverpool, immortalise your favourite legend as a knitted character. Enlightened by the Communist Manifesto? Chairman Mao would make a bold statement on your book shelf. Learn to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee with Muhammad Ali, or "Get into the Groove" with your own pint-sized Madonna doll. Colour photography and easy-to-follow instructions for the doll and wardrobe changes are included. In addition, the book features basic knitting instructions and includes a basic doll pattern and techniques for altering body shape and facial features. Whether you're a knitting novice or a seasoned expert, "Knitted Icons" is a delightful book that appeals to knitters and fans alike.
