Kristin Omdahl's Crochet So Fine 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 ...more

One of my favorite wearable-crochet books! A must read for every crocheter, advanced or novice.

The Petals Wrap Cardigan on the cover looks *very* daunting, but if you take your time to work through the easier projects in this book, learning how to read charts while you're at it, you'll find that it's easier than you thought.

Keep this in mind though:
- It's okay to use some scrap acrylics to practice with, but choose your yarns carefully! These patterns really look best made with thin and natural

An enchanting compilation of delicate and beautiful patterns that can be accomplished with nothing more than a crochet hook and some fancy string. Although admittedly, it is geared toward the intermediate and expert; there are several patterns that I found would be perfect for the beginner.

“Starry Night Wrap” found on page 17 is perfect for the novice who would like to try their hand at the more delicate side of crochet and the “Willow Bag”, a shopping type reusable tote for those who not only

I've been oogling the designs from the book on Ravelry since it first came out, & I finally borrowed the book from the library to see for myself. I was hoping to have time to actually make something out of it, but alas, that will have to be another time.

There are so many gorgeous designs, I wouldn't have been able to just pick one. If I was doing the Ravelry blogging challenge, where you work through all the projects in a book... this would be the book for me (or maybe one of my sock books,

OMG...I read this book over the holiday and as a newborn knitter and even newer babe to crochet these designs were absolutely stunning...I have no idea when I will get good enough to be able to create these works of art, but, I hope to get there maybe in 10 years or so...I got this book from the library and really didn't want to return it...So I guess I'm going to need to buy it so that I can keep it as a reference tool when I become a master at knitting and crocheting...

If you like lace and want to try crocheting lace, this book is the place to start that journey. The yarns are light weight and will look just as fashionable as knitted lace. Some great patterns in this book. Several patterns are now on my Ravelry que.

Beautiful projects, but they are overwhelming and time consuming and I'm after a quick fix, man...
Later: the projects are not overwhelming, they are fun. Thus: I was wrong in my three star review, four stars it is!

Such gorgeous patterns. I am making one currently and have several more on the list to make. The patterns are written out and charted for whichever. Method you prefer. Both easy to follow.

It is so hard to find patterns that once you make them they do not look homemade. This book has absolutely lovely designs!!!!! I am most attached to the sweater on the cover!
