Description

Kristin Omdahl's Crochet So Fine, now in a convenient eBook format, 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 eBook 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.

 "Knit and crochet designer Omdahl (Wrapped in Crochet) combats the bulkiness of crocheted garments and accessories with this collection of patterns using lace- and fingering-weight yarns.  The nature-inspired patterns take advantage of crochet’s natural airiness, often to stunning effect.  Most of the garments and accessories are complex in construction and design, and the patterns are charted as well as written.  Crocheters looking for a challenge—and a beautiful finished product—will enjoy this collection." - Library Journal

"Whether you are already a crochet afficionado, or are a knitter looking to expand your horizons, this book will provide you hours of browsing, dreaming and even stitching!" - PlanetPurl.com
