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)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Great book with beautiful, cute and elegant designs for everyday wear. You can check Ravelry for a complete list of patterns included in the book (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/essentially-feminine-knits-25-must-have-chic-designs).

Some designs are a little description-heavy (there's no charts in the book) but I got used to it after a little while.

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!

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
