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 Choice

"A very nice book, complete with the awesome DVD." - CraftGossip.com

"Fresh ideas... The included DVD is a nice touch, too, though the written descriptions seem quite clear... If you do better with visual aids, you'll appreciate the DVD." - Knitting Scholar

"There are plenty of interesting stitch pattern and clever constructions to keep you interested and challenged." - The Yarn Lounge

"The experimental construction makes the designs elegant and eye-catching.... Many of the patterns incorporate quite complicated techniques, but thanks to the bonus DVD that demonstrates unusual stitches step-by-step, the designs are still manageable for newbie knitters." - Yarn Forward magazine

"Kristin takes some unusual approaches to her techniques and the accompanying DVD will guide you through. A perfect way to learn, and who better to learn from!" - Terry Kinche, CraftGossip.com Knitting Editor

"This is the first knitting book I've seen that has a how-to DVD included and I LOVE THAT!! For people like me who love knitting, but don't always feel confident in their skills, an instructional DVD is invaluable. I would say this is an advanced level book, most of the projects are quite intricate, like wearable works of art." - Laurie Perry, aka Crazy Aunt Purl, author of Drunk, Divorced & Covered in Cat Hair: The True-Life Misadventures of a 30-Something Who Learned to Knit After He Split

"Wrap yourself in the beauty and elegance of knitted art-to-wear with amazing ideas, inspiration and patterns from designer Kristin Omdahl's latest book, A Knitting Wrapsody. If your knitting skills are intermediate to advanced, this is a definite must-add to your collection of knitting books." - The Detroit News

"Kristin Omdahl is full of ideas and always coming up with very interesting techniques for which she is merging her very artistic and creative side with her mathematically-oriented mind. We see the result in her designs as fascinating shapes and interesting usage of known stitches." - Faina Goberstein, The Designer's Studio

"Overall, the book is well-produced: there are lots of clear photos of each piece; charts and schematics are sharp and usable; the design layout is visually pleasing. The patterns seem easy to follow." - Knit and Travel, Blog

"Kristin Omdahl's designs are not only striking and inno
