This timeless collection of knitwear designs from Danish designer Marianne Isager is a stitchtechnique guide and a gallery of design inspiration in one book. Classic Knits features 25 traditional,
appealing projects worked in basic knit and purl stitch patterns, each with a distinctive design
element typical of Marianne’s style, be it an interesting combination of yarns, a clever use of stitch
pattern, or an unusual form of construction.
Choose the knitting technique you’d like to learn—entrelac, color stranding, double knitting,
slip stitch, herringbone, and more—and apply them to your design by first practicing with a gauge
swatch. When the swatch is knitted to the correct gauge and the same size as shown in the book,
the garment will match the measurements listed in the pattern.
Many of the garments in this book are based on simple knit-purl pattern stitches. None require
extensive knitting experience. You only need to know how to cast on, knit, and bind off to
successfully complete any project in this book. All other information is provided in sidebars and the
Glossary. Many knitters have trouble with the finishing process. For that reason, the garments have
been designed to require as little finishing as possible. Several of the garments are worked from the
top down, so it’s easy to add or remove rows to customize the lengths.

This intriguing pattern collection blends captivating designs with flattering, feminine silhouettes
that knitters will be eager to start and delighted to finish. With skirts, jackets, tanks, pullovers, and
accessories, Feminine Knits showcases texture, lace, and unusual pattern construction. Inspired
by current and vintage fashion and the mathematical aspect of design, Danish knitwear designer
Lene Holme Samsøe features projects for every season, skill level, time commitment, and occasion.
Samsøe’s pattern collection is full of elegant finishing and the kind of impeccable detail that makes
a piece a classic, such as crocheted edgings, flattering shaping, and tailored sleeves.
Although the book has previously been available only in Danish and Norwegian, the lovely lacy
Circular Jacket caught the eye of American and British knitters, who struggled to follow the pattern
with translation software. In addition to the complete translated patterns, English readers will now
be able to use the book’s additional resources, including yarn substitution and sizing guides.

About the author
Lene Holme Samsøe is a Danish knitting designer. In addition to five other books of

Take your sock knitting off the charts!
Cookie A., pioneer of the unconventional sock—think traveling stitches, mirrored pairs, twists on the
heel, cables and lace—shares her secrets for making rule-breaking socks in Sock Innovation. Even
knitters who haven’t been bitten by the sock bug will find fascinating technique information!
Sock Innovation aims to increase the skills of the average sock knitter by exploring design and
advanced stitch manipulation. Fueled by Cookie’s unique approach, knitters will be able to make
modifications to suit their needs and aesthetics (and not just in sock patterns). Sock Innovation goes
beyond the basic sock and explores complex stitchery, treating the sock as a knitted canvas where
elements are strategically and intentionally placed.
Cookie guides knitters through the details of her design process, from choosing a stitch pattern to
adapting it to be worked in the round, turned upside-down and inside-out, widened or narrowed. Stitch
manipulation is covered in detail, including resizing, texture modification, and converting between flat
and in-the-round.
About the author
Cookie A. has designed socks for Knitty and the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin’
Sock Club as well as for her own pattern line, which debuted in 2007 and was an
immediate hit. She has appeared on Knitty Gritty and has taught workshops around
the country and at Blue Moon Fiber Arts Camp Cockamamie, the Spindlicity Cruise to
Alaska, and Sea Socks 2008. She sells her patterns at TNNA and Stitches.

Weldon’s Practical Needlework,
Volume 12
From PieceWork magazine, Volume 12
is chock-full of knitted and crocheted
garments including socks, doilies, toys,
insertions, and household items. One
entire section is devoted to what Victorians
called waistcoats, what we refer to as
vests. To add some spice, some beautiful
white-on-white Mountmellick embroidery,
drawn-thread work, and smocking is also
included.

In the late 1800s, a company in England called Weldon’s offered monthly
newsletters that featured needlework patterns and instructions for projects. Later,
the company inaugurated a series of books titled Weldon’s Practical Needlework,
each volume consisting of 12 issues of newsletters bound with a cloth cover. Every
book is filled with hundreds of vintage projects, illustrations, information on littleknown techniques, fashion as it was at the turn of the twentieth century, and brief
histories of needlework. The books open a window to another time and place.
