Editorial Reviews

Quick & Easy Crochet
Captivating designs with flattering silhouettes.
Slipknot: The Journal of the Knitting & Crochet Guild (UK)

The designs are interesting shapes, as are the uses of stitch patterns, such as the bobble and leaf cable at the centre of an Aran.

Knitting News
5 out of 5 stars. The feminine and romantic designs showcase both contemporary and vintage ideas for fashion.
Yarn Market News
Samsoe's girly show, 22 items of spiced sugar—but not sticky-sweet—niceness. Lace is the headliner throughout, with openwork making appearances as both star (floral-motif jackets, a tiered skirt, a beribboned bolero) and supporting player (tingeing the edges of a triangle shawl, supplying a saucy central inset to a square-neck tank). Bobbles, pompoms, jacquard and cables add even more romantic lyricism to already alluring pieces.

Delicate details. Attractive shapes. Pretty . . . All the designs (and they're mostly all sweaters) are what they claim to be—feminine knits.

A gorgeous collection . . . Samsoe's patterns are very well written and clearly presented. I found a pattern for nearly every women in my life in this book.
