    Best-selling author Kristin Omdahl designs knit and crochet garments and patterns under her label KRISTIN and website styledbykristin.com. She appears in every episode ofKnitting Daily TV on public television as the show's Crochet Corner expert, conducts seminars around the country, and teaches knitting and crochet in her DVD workshops, includingInnovative Crochet: Motifs. She is also the author of Wrapped in Crochet,Crochet So Fine, and A Knitting Wrapsody. Kristin's work has appeared in many magazines and books. She enjoys knitting and crocheting in her orchid garden in sunny southwest Florida.

    Kristin Omdahl's Crochet So Fine takes crocheted clothing from fussy to fashionable! By working with thinner yarns and more flexible stitches, crocheters can produce garments that are stylish and comfortable, figure-flattering without being form-fitting and great for layering. And just because the yarn is thin doesn't mean crocheters need to use the smallest of hooks, fine crochet can be quick and easy, too.

    Crocheters begin by exploring techniques specific to crocheting with fine yarns: gauge, blocking, and garment construction tips to maximize drape. Then they can choose from 20 projects including stunning crocheted pullovers, cardigans, jackets, capes, shawls, scarves, hats, and more. Many of the projects only require one or two skeins of yarn. The designs are interesting to make, using clever stitch motifs, innovative and traditional shaping methods, and a variety of crochet techniques and embellishment ideas. In addition to a variety of stitch patterns, motifs, and techniques, Crochet So Fine includes tutorials with detailed illustrations and instruction on Tunisian crochet, broomstick crochet, and hairpin lace. The garments include couture details such as colorwork, beading, lace, ruffles, tiers, and more. All stitch motifs include charts, and the specialized techniques include how-to sections.

    • Exactly as expected
      Verified Purchase

      I had seen this at Michaels Craft store for almost double the price and of course the coupon's they offer are excluded from books. I was doing a search online for a used book at least and it came up on overstock at a very reasonable price in comparison to the craft stores price which is pretty outrageouse to me. Love the book, already have 2 projects started. Shipping was a tad slow but arrived eventually.

    • SO MUCH INSIDE
      Verified Purchase

      I'm an avid crocheter, but never thought that I would find projects that could be made that were fine and detailed and beautiful, unlike the heavy normal crochet projects that I've done in the past. The book is biggest than I expected and have lovely pictures and great projects inside. I've already got about 5 of the projects started and can't wait to make even more.
