Product Description

Review

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)

Great designs and different options to personalize.

Very good, detailed instructions-no errors so far and as I`m knitting the lace blouse, this would be evident very quickly.

not for everyone. Reader must be experienced to understand the instructions and must have experience in knitting. Very nice patterns

Format: Paperback
This book has very interesting patterns, but some are for the very advanced knitter but not all. As it was translated into english some of the language is a bit funny but still very clear and easy to follow.

I am knitting a cabled sweater from it and there has only been one minimal change I needed to make so I assume they weeded out any technical errors in their first language draft.

A great book for an experienced knitter looking to make very wearable but unique pieces!

I bought this book based on the reviews (since there were no pictures of the included projects) and was not disappointed. While there are a few patterns that are not to my taste, there are many more that I look forward to knitting. The projects are primarily sweaters and cardigans, with a couple of hats, gloves and a scarf thrown in. From what I have read so far the patterns seem well written and easy to follow.
