Crochetville is very happy to have been asked by Bijou Basin Ranch to participate in the blog tour promoting Kristin Omdahl’s newest booklet, the Complements Collection. This booklet represents Bijou Basin’s first collection of patterns in booklet form, featuring 13 crochet and knit designs.

In this collection, Kristin has highlighted many of the exquisite yarns offered by Bijou Basin Ranch. Projects require from one to three skeins of yarn, providing options for nearly any budget. I’ve used a couple of these yarns myself, and they are a crocheter’s dream to work with!

Here are some photos of the fabulous crochet projects in this booklet:

I think my favorite is the Tulip Tiered Crochet Cowl above. I love the design of the pattern, and I also love the silkiness and drape of the Lhasa Wilderness yarn.
