No-Sew Garments in Classic Styles

Imagine knitting a beautiful sweater without the stressful obstacles of sewing,
seaming, and grafting. Welcome to knitwear designer Kristen TenDyke’s world
of Finish-Free Knits. While exploring these twenty designs, you will discover
stitch-free solutions to previously frustrating obstacles to finishing a design.
Kristen will teach you to knit sweaters with no assembly required. Through
clever planning and simple techniques, the projects in Finish-Free Knits
are shaped and joined during knitting—without sacrificing the pockets,
buttonbands, and shaped collars that are accomplished in most designs by
sewing together separate pieces. In addition, learn how to shape armholes, join
pieces as you go, and use short-rows for shaping.
Once you’ve mastered these stress-free finishing techniques, you can apply
variations of each method to projects beyond the book. With Finish-Free Knits,
avoid the dreaded “some assembly required” phrase forever.

Crocheted Trims, Motifs & Borders

An innovative collection of forty stitch and twelve garment patterns from bestselling author Kristin Omdahl, The Finer Edge demonstrates various techniques,
construction methods, and versatile applications for crocheted edgings.

novel ways to expand their use of edgings, from creating entire fabrics to
making individual decorative motifs, and even creating three-dimensional
designs. Focusing on construction techniques for edgings, the book is divided
into three separate sections: top-down, sideways, and bottom-up methods.
There are also twelve project patterns in multiple sizes that highlight the
edgings, as well as charts, illustrations, and photographs of crochet swatches.
