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.

Beautiful classic styles. Instruction are very easy to follow, and provides lots of picture to compare you knitting. Really enjoyed this book, on my way to making a beautiful jacket/cardigan for work!

Tasteful and elegantly crafted, but not overly exciting. Projects can be viewed on Ravelry.
