Summary

Seamless and top-down knitting have become extremely popular with knitters over the last few years, as they quickly appreciated the speed, custom fit, and lack of sewing such techniques offered. Yet while there are plenty of titles on the topic, up to now there has not been a book that goes further than very basic garment construction. The Art of Seamless Knittingdelves into a deeper understanding of seamless knitting, and shows different constructions and stitch pattern adaptations for seamless or nearly seamless knits while also offering a beautiful collection of elegant, sophisticated and timeless designs. Converting stitch patterns from flat to knitting in the round is just one of the topics covered in this book. This book will also focus on best choices for cast-ons, working with stitch patterns for a raglan line, making a button band as part of a body, making faux "side seams" for a flawless pattern display, and customizing seamless or nearly seamless lace, cable, and other designs. The authors will offer short discussions on designing with lace, cable, texture, and color seamlessly, as well as tips and tricks accompanying each design in order for a reader to be able to make customizations and create unique pieces for themselves. Small accessory projects begin each section as a way for readers to #145;test-drive' various techniques, before launching into full-sized garments. Faina and Simona further offer tips on how to convert or substitute stitch patterns of one's own--demonstrating how to tailor them to one's needs and likes. Thus in addition to offering a beautiful collection of classic and elegant style knitwear designs, The Art of Seamless Knittingis also a go-to hands-on reference book that can be enjoyed for years to come.
