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 ingenious ways for wrapping knits, 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.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. Knitters will expand their wardrobe with bold, stylish shapes and add form-flattering pieces perfect for layering.
