Description

Fall in love with knitting again! This intriguing pattern collection blends captivating designs with flattering, feminine silhouettes that you'll be eager to start and delighted to finish. With skirts, jackets, tanks, pullovers, and accessories, Feminine Knits showcases texture, lace, and unusual pattern construction. Inspired by current and vintage fashion and the mathematical aspect of design, Danish knitwear designer Lene Holme Samsoe features projects for every season, skill level, time commitment, and occasion. Samsoe's pattern collection is full of elegant finishing and the kind of impeccable detail that makes a piece a classic, such as crocheted edgings, flattering shaping, and tailored sleeves.

Although the book has previously been available only in Danish and Norwegian, the lovely lacy Circular Jacket caught the eye of American and British knitters, who struggled to follow the pattern with translation software. In addition to the complete translated patterns, you will now be able to use the book's additional resources, including yarn substitution and sizing guides. The romantic design details and feminine silhouettes featured throughout the patterns in this book are showcased with beautiful photography and detailed knitting instructions. With 22 projects, Feminine Knits is packed to the brim with timeless yet fashionable patterns that are very wearable and interesting to knit.
