A lattice model of gradual freezing in quasi-one-dimensional substances is presented. In any number of dimension, the model can be mapped to spin 1/2 Ising model and thus, in one dimension, it is exactly solvable, as the original version. By using this model, it is shown how the sharpness of freezing is related with the intermolecular interaction and some other macroscopic properties that characterize each substance.
