Techniques and Designs for Join-as-you-go MotifsBook - 2011
"Join the seamless revolution Traditional motif seaming techniques require crocheters to painstakingly sew together hundreds of seams and weave in countless ends. Not with Seamless Crochet! With Seamless Crochet, innovative designer Kristin Omdahl has pioneered a new technique for crocheters of all skill levels to create motif-based patterns in one piece, eliminating seams and leaving only two ends to weave in. Kristin's revolutionary modular construction allows one motif to flow into the next, creating secure joins and beautiful geometric patterning on the exterior round. Inside you'll find a showcase of 18 garment, home decor, and accessory projects from Kristin that will change the way you crochet forever. From pillows to shawls to blankets, these projects illustrate just how versatile and time-saving this "tail-free" construction method is. As a bonus, Seamless Crochet also includes a helpful instructional DVD of Kristin explaining the details of her new technique. Plus, the book offers a motif directory of original designs with Kristin's expert advice on how to adapt any motif-based pattern to her one-of-a-kind seamless technique. Seamless Crochet will forever transform the way you approach every crocheted motif-based design and project. "-- Provided by publisher.
