Finish-Free Knits

No-Sew Garments in Classic Styles
by kristin tendyke

Imagine knitting a beautiful sweater without the stressful
obstacles of sewing, seaming, and grafting. Welcome
to knitwear designer Kristen TenDyke’s world of FinishFree Knits. While exploring these 20 designs, knitters will
discover assembly-free solutions to previously frustrating
obstacles needed to finish a design.
Through clever planning and some simple techniques,
projects are shaped and joined during knitting without
sacrificing the pockets, buttonbands, and shaped
collars that previously needed to be sewn onto
projects. In addition, learn how to convert patterns
from flat to circular, shape armholes, join pieces as you
go, use short-rows for shaping, and more.
Once these stress-free finishing techniques are learned,
you will enjoy the freedom of applying variations
of these methods beyond the book. With FinishFree Knits, you’ll never need to pick up your sewing
materials to finish your knitting projects again.

Kristen TenDyke’s knit and crochet designs have appeared
in Weekend Hats, Knitting Green, The Knitter’s Handy Book
of Top-Down Sweater Patterns, and in several Interweave
magazines, including Interweave Knits and Interweave
Crochet. A former staff member of Classic Elite, she recently launched Caterpillar Knits. Kristen lives in Maine.
