Between the satisfaction of knitting the last stitch and putting on a sweater for the first time comes a step over which many knitters stumble: the sewing, seaming, grafting, and other manoeuvers with a tapestry needle needed to turn flat knitted pieces into a wearable garment. (To avoid this step altogether, some knitters pay hundreds of dollars for someone else to sew up their sweaters.) But what if that step could be skipped altogether so that the tapestry needle would only be needed to weave in ends? Knitwear designer and technical editor Kristen TenDyke teaches readers to knit sweaters with no assembly required. Through clever planning and some simple techniques, the 20 designs in Finish-Free Knits are shaped and joined during knitting-without sacrificing the pockets, button bands, shaped collars, and more that is accomplished in most designs by sewing together separate pieces. Readers will learn how to take these new technical skills-for converting patterns from flat to circular, shaping armholes, joining pieces as you go, and using short-rows for shaping-beyond the garments in the book to inform their other projects, avoiding the dreaded "Some Assembly Required" phase forever.
