What 7 Kama Sutra Poses Look Like When You Knit Them

1/8 ,

Mark your calendars: Knit Your Own Kama Sutra by Trixie von Purl (who else?) hits shelves January 20. But you don't have to wait until next week to see how the book manages to combine one of the least sexy hobbies imaginable (sorry, knitters) with X-rated positions. The publisher gave us a sneak peek at some of the projects—and even if you can't knit a single stitch, you'll want to check them out.

The Bridge

This position is named for the shape the guy makes when he bends over backward. Von Purl suggests trying it out on a secluded rooftop—and gives instructions on how to knit plants and fairy lights to set the scene.

The Deck Chair

Kind of gives a whole new meaning to the term "roll in the hay," huh?

The Erotic V

You don't have to try this position on your office's copy machine—but if you do, make sure not to leave any photo evidence sitting in the paper tray.

The Indrani

Let's call camping what it really is: an excuse to get busy in the great outdoors.

The Kneel

A direct quote from the book about this one: "One word of warning—you might not get much knitting done."

The Perch

Because no one will notice you sitting on your guy's lap at the movie theater if you decide to try this one at home.

The Suspended Scissors

You knew all of those extra pushups would pay off!
