Designer Kristin Omdahl is one of the most innovative designers working today, and in this collection, she showcases her signature motif designs and experimental construction in 18 original patterns-five scarves, six wraps, five shawls, and two skirts-that provide new ways to think about knitting pieces that wrap, drape, or tie. Unlike other wrap books, this collection offers some ingenious ways for wrapping your knitting, whether around the neck, shoulders, or waist. The designs for these garments are just what knitters are hungry for-inspirational, creative patterns that advance skills, explore shape and silhouette, and are beautiful to wear year-round. All of the garments incorporate interesting elements, from reversible stitch patterns and unique knitted edgings to interesting closures. Each project is knitted, but much of the aesthetic draws inspiration from the geometry, motifs, and techniques of crochet. Some of the techniques are quite unusual and readers will benefit from watching the enclosed DVD to see some of them demonstrated before casting on for a project. With her passionate attention to stitch detail and one-of-a-kind motif designs, Kristin offers a wide range of projects in A Knitting Wrapsody for a variety of skill levels and time commitments. Expand your wardrobe with bold, stylish shapes and add form-flattering pieces perfect for layering.show more

Review quote

With 18 unique and innovative designs that you can wrap, drape and tie, this book is great for anyone who loves knitting clothes and accessories. The scarves, wraps and shawls are all practical and can be worn with almost any outfit. The experimental construction makes the designs elegant and eye-catching - all your friends and family will be begging you to knot for them, or it might even inspire them to ask you to teach them how. Many of the patterns incorporate quite complicated techniques, but thanks to the bonus DVD that demonstrates unusual stitches step-by-step, the designs are still manageable for newbie knitters. With this book you can expand your wardrobe with bold, stylish shapes which will flatter most figures and are ideal for layering, which is a big trend for Spring and perfect for the unpredictable British weather.-Yarn Forwardshow more
