Essentially Feminine Knits features a collection of 25 must-have garments and accessories for every occasion, casual to dressy. Designer and author Lene Holme Samsoe'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 Samsoe'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. Samsoe's unique style guarantees boldness and authenticity, and the patterns from Essentially Feminine Knits will keep you refined, chic, and simply feminine.
