Superbly fitted and fashioned in luxurious yarns, these imaginative patterns follow four thematic vignettes inspired by French daily life, film, and history. Each section features dramatically different types of yarns, colors, and stitch patterns combined with timeless, figure flattering silhouettes that are suitable for knitters of all skill levels. Using innovative seamless construction methods, the need for sewing seams has been nearly eliminated by fashioning patterns in one piece from start to finish, easily allowing for adjustments for a custom fit. A handy design workshop features in-depth tutorials that teach seamless construction methods and provide valuable technical information for both beginning and seasoned knitters. Perfect for all body types, the designs are figure flattering with curve friendly waist shaping, empire waist detailing, and stitch details such as lacing, openwork, lace edgings, and bell sleeves that highlight the silhouette.

Lovely feminine patterns, suitable for a range of body types and sizes. Instructions are well written and the items look interesting to knit.

Two patterns: Anjou, a lacy tie-hem top and Veronique, an 'airy' shrug indeed are dreams of ellegance.

Knitting designs for everyone. Well, pretty much everyone (see below). Suitable for varying ages, body types, personal styles, and skill levels, aside from the beginner. Each design has a name and an inspiring story. Sigh; I wish I was a french girl.
