Imagine knitting a beautiful sweater without the additional work of sewing and seaming. In this collection of 20 elegant and cleverly planned patterns, knitwear designer Kristen TenDyke offers sew-free solutions to such frustrating obstacles as mattress stitch and grafting. TenDyke applies her no-assembly-required technique to every aspect of knitting, shaping and joining as she goes, without sacrificing the pockets, button bands, shaped collars, and other popular features that are typically accomplished by sewing together separate pieces. TenDyke further explains how to shape armholes, join pieces as you go, and use short-rows for shaping.
"[This book] presents 20 knitwear designs from the well-known designer that lets the knitter 'off the hook' ... or needle ... for sewing, seaming and other finishing techniques."—Publishers Weekly
