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.
"Crochet motifs are the basis for many of today's most popular designs, from Granny Square afghans to lacy shawls. These projects are traditionally constructed as beautiful, discrete building blocks that are sewn together after all are made, which can mean hundreds of seams (and twice that many ends to weave in). Kristin has pioneered a new way of working patterns in one piece eliminating seams and leaving only two ends to weave in! This modular construction allows one piece to flow into the next and thejoins are more secure than traditional joining. Each motif is joined to all of the adjacent motifs in the stitch pattern, creating beautiful geometric patterning on the exterior round. This technique basically entails working half a row of motifs at a time, from left to right. The return row completes the top half of each motif in the row. The end result looks like traditional motifs, but the construction is entirely different. When crocheting a traditional motif, you crochet a chain to elevate the hook to the height of the stitches on that row. No, imagine if you were to work a chain long enough to include the beginning chain of every round before you began your first round. At the end of every round, you would just slip stitch to the appropriate heightchain to join and slip stitch up the correct height for the next round of stitches. "--
