No-Sew Knits: 20 Flattering, Finish-Free Garments.pdf
Ease into knitting sweaters, seamlessly. Kristen TenDyke will teach readers to knit the perfect sweater-no assembly required. Through clever planning and some simple techniques, projects are shaped and joined during knitting-all without sacrificing the pretty details. No-Sew Knits offers 20 garments that combine easy construction techniques and on-trend comfortable styling for everyday wear. While many sweaters are based on simple raglan and yoke constructions, Kristen takes the opportunity to introduce readers to a variety of other easier-than-they-seem techniques, while keeping the patterns approachable for advanced beginners. Chapters are focused around the elements of stitch patterns, cables, and lace. The resulting pieces are beautifully constructed garments that boast eye-catching details: the large focal cable and cowl of the Rejoice Tunic; the cozy foldover collar of the Dreamy Pullover; the delicate lace of the Enchanted Cardi.
