Description

Essentially Feminine Knits features a collection of 25 must-have garments and accessories for every occasion, casual to dressy. Designer and author Lene Holme Samsoe's patterns express her joy in knitting and embody a sometimes delicate, but always fashionably ladylike approach while relaying her inspiration-the sea that borders her home and it's subtle, simplistic colors. Focusing on Samsoe's signature botanical lace motifs, this collection offers designs with a variety of beautiful effects. Inside you'll find original sweaters, tops, jackets, hats, scarves, and mittens. Each pattern reveals elegant detailing, a flattering silhouette, and classic style, all of which are combined with a playful and modern sensibility. The projects featured in this book range from simple and quick to more in-depth-with the use of unique pattern instructions. Samsoe's unique style guarantees boldness and authenticity, and the patterns from Essentially Feminine Knits will keep you refined, chic, and simply feminine.show more

Review quote

Praise for Lene Holme Samsoe's previous title, Feminine Knits "5 out of 5 stars. The feminine and romantic designs showcase both contemporary and vintage ideas for fashion." - Knitting News "Samsoe's girly show, 22 items of spiced sugar--but not sticky-sweet--niceness. Lace is the headliner throughout, with openwork making appearances as both star (floral-motif jackets, a tiered skirt, a beribboned bolero) and supporting player (tinging the edges of a triangle shawl, supplying a saucy central inset to a square-neck tank). Bobbles, pompoms, jacquard and cables add even more romantic lyricism to already alluring pieces." - Yarn Market News "A gorgeous collection... Samsoe's patterns are very well written and clearly presented. I found a pattern for nearly every women in my life in this book." - KnitPurlGurl.com "Delicate details. Attractive shapes. Pretty... All the designs (and they're mostly all sweaters) are what they claim to be--feminine knits." - KnittingScholar.com "This volume is newly translated into English and features beautiful sweater, scarf and jacket patterns perfect for intermediate to advanced knitters." - American-Statesman "Captivating designs with flattering silhouettes." - Quick & Easy Crochet "The designs are interesting shapes, as are the uses of stitch patterns, such as the bobble and leaf cable at the centre of an Aran." - Slipknot: The Journal of the Knitting & Crochet Guild (UK)show more
