The Art of Seamless Knitting - Simona Merchant-Dest and Faina Goberstein
The Art of Seamless Knitting by Simona Merchant-Dest and Faina Goberstein allows you to take your knowledge of top-down, bottom-up, and seamless knitting to a higher level by learning how to convert and adapt lace, cable, and color patterns to circular knitting and shaping techniques. Seamless and top-down knitting have become extremely popular techniques with knitters over the past few years: they knit up quickly, give a custom fit, and do not require sewing. The Art of Seamless Knitting delves into a deep understanding of seamless knitting, showing different modes of construction and stitch pattern adaptations for seamless (or nearly-seamless) knits while also offering a beautiful collection of 12 elegant, sophisticated, and timeless designs. You will also learn about increasing and decreasing in different types of pattern stitches (lace, cables, textured stitches), 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.
