Each of the four chapters explores a different set of embellishment methods, offering clear illustrations and step-by-step instruction. Each technique is then showcased in Louisa's romantic, feminine and cherished signature style, from a beret with ribbon embroidery or a beaded scarf to a simple knitted vest with eyelets or tank top with applique hearts. Many patterns also include variations using a different yarn, edging, or embellishment to demonstrate the range of looks possible. Louisa's appraoch highlights the boutique feel of each design, encouraging knitters to add their own personality by customizing projects. The additional design tips and ideas offered throughout provide fresh inspiration to create a unique piece of knitwear. Filled with inspiring project photography from the coast of France, this book evokes romantic femininity and showcases how a project can be totally transformed by creative and well-placed embellishment.

"24 appealing small patterns (which is nice - maybe you'll finish them before the warm weather!)and instructions on how to embellish each piece. Whether you add beads or buttons, create a knitted flower, or add personality with embroidery, there are all sorts of bewitching ideas in this book." -

"A little bit extra often makes something you knit truly an expression of yourself. In her latest book, Lousia Harding talks and teaches about just those little extras...use her advice to create knitwear with timeless romance and femininity." -

"There are 24 projects in all, and every one is a winner!" - Knit 'n Style, June 2011

"I was pleased to see that the designer incorporated beads into some of the projects. I'm always happy to see the cross-over between my most beloved hobby with knitting, sewing, crocheting, scrapbooking, etc. The photos are marvelous." - Sara Hardin, Soft Flex Company
