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 the joins 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 height chain to join and slip stitch up the correct height for the next round of stitches. "--
