The Disney Book of Knitting
Coss and Robinson
Submitter: Found this gem going through the knitting books. It was hard not to scan the entire book as everything is cringe worthy. My favorite has to be the back of the Cruella De Vil dress with the cat and dog over the butt.
Holly: See what I did there, with the title? #Frozen
This is a fine choice for a public library because Lord knows there are Disney
fiends fans everywhere, but I’m with submitter that a lot of the items are cringe worthy! The book is 31 years old, but has Disney really changed? Fashion itself has changed, but I’m not sure people this into Disney really care how fashionable the sweater is. I’m mostly cracking up about how into it the models are. Their postures and facial expressions absolutely embody the characters they are wearing. Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? That girl looks terrified!
Also… what character is on the sweater with the lady with her hands up? Maybe Lady and the Tramp? Or is that the one Submitter says is the back of the Cruella de Vil dress? Maybe, but it’s a totally different model than the first picture below. How about the very last image – is that a smoking ape? Possibly Jungle Book?
