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 your knitting, whether around the neck, shoulders, or waist. The designs for these garments are just what you''ve been waiting for--inspirational, creative patterns that advance your 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 the enclosed DVD will demonstrate them in-depth before you cast 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.

Editorial Reviews

Finalist in the About.com Reader''s Choice Awards for Best Knitting Book of 2011. " A Knitting Wrapsody is a lot of fun for knitters who are looking for something a little different in their garments. Lots of knitting projects - socks, hats and sweaters, to name just a few - are pretty much only good for one purpose; they can only be worn one way. But Kristin Omdahl thinks knitting should be more versatile than that, and she''s come up with some designs that turn a cape into a coat, sweater pieces into a cape and a capelet into a scarf or collar, just to name a few." - About.com Guide to Knitting "One of the most exciting new knitting books that I''ve seen in several months... With scarves, wraps, shawls and skirts, it has something in it for just about everyone." - Courier-News "These fresh patterns feature some unusual design elements that make them outstanding...the handy DVD reference guide...is the next best thing to having a private instructor at your side... Whether your interest is lace, texture or construction details, this collection has a little something for everyone." - Monsters and Critics "Now, [Kristin Omdahl] brings her dramatic style to knitting with 18 drop-dead gorgeous projects unlike anything you''ll ever see in stores. The wraps, skirts and shawls in A Knitting Wrapsody incorporate unusual elements and clever designs to make them really stand out... Omdahl demonstrates her new and unusual techniques on the DVD that comes with this book." - Crafter''s Ch
