Perfectly Feminine Knits is the latest collection from Danish designer Lene Holme Samsøe. You may have seen her book Essentially Feminine Knits here at the shop, or followed the popular “Amanda” knitalong over at Fringe Association, where knitters worked up variations on this classic cabled cardigan from Samsøe’s book.

Samsøe’s latest collection is more of the same, which is to say, sophisticated, yet wearable women’s garments.

She’s divided the collection into sections by technique, with a chapter for texture patterns, another for cables, another for lace, and so on.

Samsøe often uses Isager yarns, combining two or three strands to make bigger gauges and interesting color and fiber blends.
