All the crochet stitches and techniques you'll need are clearly explained with words and illustrations at the back of the book, making each and every garment accessible to all. * Knit Today * Summer 10 Kristin Omdahl explores the potential of crocheting thin, or fine, yarn to create figure-flattering garments that are great for layering.
