Overview

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 20 designs, you will discover stitch-free solutions to previously frustrating obstacles needed to finish a design.

Kristen will teach you to knit sweaters with no assembly required. Through clever planning and some simple techniques, the projects in Finish-Free Knits are shaped and joined during knitting--without sacrificing the pockets, buttonbands, shaped collars, and more that is accomplished in most designs by sewing together separate pieces. In addition, learn how to 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 to apply variations of each method in projects beyond the book. With Finish-Free Knits you can avoid the dreaded "Some Assembly Required" phrase forever.

I have ripped apart already completed pieces because I hate seaming. I do sew but I always thought since in knitting you shape the piece in the moment seaming should be minimal. This book addresses that. This is the first knitting book I have bought that I may have to make every pattern. Should be in every knitting library.

Lovely patterns. I look forward to doing several of these garments. Purchased one for my daughter and me.
