Kristin Omdahl explores the potential of crocheting thin, or fine, yarn to create figure-flattering garments that are great for layering. To help maximise drape, Kristin gives key information on gauge, blocking and construction. The intriguing designs incorporate clever motifs and innovative shaping - and manu of them do not call for a teeny hook. Crochet So Fine includes tutorials with illustrations and instruction on Tunisian crochet, broomstick crochet, and hairpin lace. The shapely garments include such finishing details as beading, lace, ruffles, tiers and more. All stitch motifs include charts, and the specialized techniques include how-to sections.* Interweave Crochet *
Laceweight yarns work well in crochet - they show off the decorative stitches beautifully, and make the typically bulky (in relation to knitted) stitches less cumbersome and more refined. Kristin's gorgeous garments have been designed to perfection, each boasting wonderful drape. The exquisite wraps, shawls, capes, hats, scarves, tops and cardigans - some with beads - are so comfortable stylish and easy to wear. All the crochet stitches and techniques you'll need are clearly explained with words and illustrations at the back of the book, making each and every garment accessible to all.* Knit Today *
