Majestic Skies Crochet Motif Shawl Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
While this beautiful crochet motif would be gorgeous in a solid color, Kristin has taken it to another level with 4 gorgeous colors! In this pattern she will show you how to take a square motif, join it together to create a fabric, manipulate it to create triangle motifs in rounds AND rows, and even create an edging ALL WITHIN the same stitch pattern. And what a stunning shawl that results! The pattern included many charts, diagrams along with the line by line instructions.

Wandering Love Knit Lace Vest by Kristin Omdahl
Knit from the top down, completely seamlessly, this vest is a really simple project. The raglan shaping is done in garter stitch (knit every row). The closure is similar to a scarf or sarong: you simply tie the corners of the front tabs. That’s it! The lower body is a simple wavy lace pattern and there is no shaping whatsoever in the pattern. It’s easy to memorize. The lower hem is exaggerated for great hip ease that looks flattering on everyone. Slip this vest over a casual dress or tanktop and jeans. Or layer it with a button down shirt and suit pants for a splash of color at the office! Pattern is sized for 35 (39, 43, 47, 51)" Bust.

Tempesta Knit Top Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
Knit this sexy, simple pullover with clever cut out details for a one of a kind top. Worked from the bottom up, in the round, mostly seamless, with minimal finishing. The flower petal inspired cutouts and cold-shoulder details add visual interest and a subtle sex appeal. The hip ease gives the body of the sweater gorgeous drape and a flattering shape. Pattern is sized for 35 (39, 43, 47, 51)" Bust.

The self ties make it so easy to slip this over a casual dress or jeans and a tshirt. Dress it up with a blouse and dress slacks for a spash of color in the office. Pattern includes charts, schematics as well as line by line instructions.

Jewel of the Shrug Crochet Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
X marks the spot with this cute shrug whipped up with a unique stitch pattern that boasts a pretty geometric pattern and a lovely, scalloped, beaded border. The top down raglan shaping is easy to try on while you crochet to determine the best fit for you. Pattern includes charts and is sized for 34 - 50" Bust.

Fan Dancer Crochet Dress Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
This simple, chic maxi dress is full of figure flattering details. The dual, front-thigh slits are overlapping for a more modest reveal; the relaxed waist begs for a chunky hip slung belt or cropped denim jacket, and the a-line fullness in the skirt flows beautifully when you walk. The exquisite lace pattern in the skirt is modified for a simpler pattern in the bodice but still reflects the stitches used. Pattern is sized for 32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52)" bust.
