This collection is truly dear to the author's heart. She is a math fanatic and oftentimes gets really focused on the construction and technical aspect of design. After years and volumes of success with fashion-forward designs, she thought she'd challenge herself to design a collection of romantic, feminine, and girlie wearables.Lace is a perennial topic among crocheters and these days it's hotter than ever. Kristin Omdahl has always had a special flair for designing lace and openwork, and here offers a variety of lace techniques. She covers how to create exciting lace using basic motifs and stitches, and also includes garments made with broomstick, hairpin, Tunisian and Bruges lace techniques.Shawl and cowl projects exist alongside full garments projects such as sweaters and tunics, the fitted garments showing off shaping techniques in a more advanced fashion. Garments are constructed in traditional fashion (with the lace crocheted in pattern) as well as by joined motifs. Crocheters will find a veritable orchestra of crochet ideas to choose from, even felting, in the form of a sumptuous felted handbag. |Oh-so-Lovely crochet lace designs!
