Finish-free Knits
"For knitters who like to knit--not to sew--Finish-Free Knits teaches you to keep your knitting projects out of seaming purgatory"-- "Imagine knitting a beautiful sweater without the stressful obstacles of sewing, seaming, and grafting. Welcome to Knitwear designer Kristen TenDyke's world of Finish-Free Knits! While exploring these 20 designs, you will discover stitch-free solutions to previously frustrating obstacles needed to finish a design. Kristen will teach you to knit sweaters with no assembly required. Through clever planning and some simple techniques, the projects 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. In addition, learn how to convert patterns from flat to circular, shape armholes, join pieces as you go, use short-rows for shaping, and more. Once these stress-free finishing techniques are learned, you will enjoy the freedom to apply variations of each method in projects beyond the book. With Finish-Free Knits you can avoid the dreaded "Some Assembly Required" phrase forever. "--

Really interesting ideas in this book, and you can take elements of the patterns and use them in other projects.
