The Finer Edge by Kristin Omdahl *GIVEAWAY*

Kristin Omdahl is a crochet genius and we are always excited to see a new book from her. The latest, The FinerEdge: Crocheted Trims, Borders, & Motifs is another lovely addition to her repertoire. The book contains written and charted instructions for a myriad of patterns, enough to keep you busy for a good long while. Not only that, but it has both patterns for full garments AND stand alone motifs and trims that you could apply to anything making this book both a reference and a pattern book. This belongs in ANY crocheters library.


We think The Finer Edge speaks for itself so here are some of our favorite designs from the book:

Palmira Shawl

Pompeii Mobius

Petra Wrap Skirt

Birka Car Coat


Luxor Blanket

Memphis Bag

Anni Belt/Scarf
Impressed yet? We certainly are! In fact, we know you are going to love this book so much we just HAD to share it with you! We have a copy of The Finer Edge to giveaway to one reader. Please leave us a comment to let us know what design from the book that you’d knit first. Or, tell us (and link to) your favorite design of Kristin’s. We randomly draw a winner and announce it on the blog on Monday, June 17th. Good luck, and thanks for entering!

Happy crocheting!

Kristen  :)
