Today I'm here to review a new crochet title for you dear readers. This is Continuous Crochet by designer Kristin Omdahl.
|(C) Interweave Press|
Available from Interweave Store for $22.99
"This collection is dedicated to a variety of ways in which one can crochet designs and shapes and joining, all without cutting the yarn. I love sewing as much as the next person, but not when crocheting. So in this collection, I've placed considerable emphasis on reducing the number of ends to weave in, while pushing the envelope on what can be done within the parameters of garment design."
Designer Kristin Omdahl and Interweave Press are a wonderful team and you can feel confident that you'll find well-written patterns in this book. There are stitch diagrams for every project, schematics for all the garments, and other diagrams and graphics where needed for explanation. The back contains a key to all the abbreviations and explanations, and graphics of any special techniques used.
Now let's get to the fun part! I am happy to share my three favorite projects in the book:
|Twilight Skies Cardigan|
|Alfresco by the Lake Cape|
