Distinctively modern, perfectly feminine knitting designs. Knitters will delight in patterns that effortlessly combine a thoroughly modern sophistication with a certain delicate femininity. Author Lene Holme Samsoe explores striking shapes, refined details, and lovely textures in a collection that includes knitted sweaters, cardigans, a poncho, scarves, stockings, mittens, and possibly the prettiest hat one's ever seen. A number of knit patterns have optional variations that transform the garments in subtle ways. From relaxed weekend attire to an office-ready garment or a lightweight sweater that can double up as a piece in one's winter wardrobe, Lene has knitters covered for all occasions. With patterns both easy and more complex, there's something for every level of knitter. Look for knitting designs made up in an elegantly restrained palette using yarns that range from sheer to heavier-weight and see examples of how different some knit patterns can look depending on the shade of yarn used.
Lene Holme Samsoe has worked as a knitting designer since 1988. Today she is a full-time knitwear designer for both Danish and foreign yarn companies, magazines, and periodicals. She is also the author of Feminine Knits and Essentially Feminine Knits.
