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 Samsøe’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 Samsøe’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. Samsøe’s unique style guarantees boldness and authenticity, and the patterns from Essentially Feminine Knits will keep you refined, chic, and simply feminine.

Excited to get started Review by Alexandra

I have picked at least 4 sweaters to make right away from this book. I love how it is laid out and easy to follow the pattern.

Great Patterns Review by Jayne
Rating

This is a great sweater pattern book. I have made two sweaters from it and am working on my third. The sweaters are very wearable. Unlike some pattern books that have a couple of sweater patterns and are filled with accessory patterns, this one is mostly sweaters. The projects are arranged by type of knitting, i.e.garter stitch, leaf , cable, lace patterns, etc. I have checked this book out of the library twice (I like to preview books before buying) and this one is definitely on my list for owning.

Scarf pattern has many errors Review by Elizabeth
Rating

There is an errata, but the errata for the "scarf" seems to be flawed. Wish there was someone who could correct this correctly.

Beautiful designs Review by Barbara Sullivan

I just got this book in the mail and it's great; beautiful designs. My one complaint is that they don't go up to 48" or 50" in size. Oh well, I'll just have to get the calulator out.
