Description

Join the seamless revolution

Kristin Omdahl debuts her revolutionary, one-of-kind seamless motif joining crochet technique in one superb bundle that includes the Seamless Crochet eBook and techniques video. Traditional motif seaming techniques require crocheters to painstakingly sew together hundreds of seams and weave in countless ends. Not with Seamless Crochet!

Innovative designer Kristin Omdahl has pioneered a new technique for crocheters of all skill levels to create motif-based patterns in one piece, eliminating seams and leaving only two ends to weave in. Kristin's brand-new modular construction allows one motif to flow into the next, creating secure joins and beautiful geometric patterning on the exterior round.

Inside you'll find a showcase of 18 garment, home decor, and accessory projects from Kristin that will change the way you crochet forever. From pillows to shawls to blankets, these projects will show you just how versatile and time-saving this "tail-free" construction method is. You'll also discover a Seamless Crochet video with a helpful instructional video of Kristin explaining all the details of her new crochet technique as well as a motif directory of original crochet motif designs with Kristin's expert advice on how to adapt any motif-based pattern to her one-of-a-kind seamless technique.

The Seamless Crochet eBook plus video bundle will transform the way you approach every crocheted motif-based design, giving you professional crochet results in a fraction of the time.

Details
"This is the most comprehensive resource I've yet found on the topic of crocheting join-as-you-go motifs.  I've occasionally seen join-as-you-go designs before, but up until now I've seen this technique used mostly as a way to join granny squares.  It's really exciting, inspiring and refreshing to get a hold of an entire collection of patterns created using this method." – Amy Solovay, Crochet Editor at About.com
 
"Kristin’s thoughtfulness to provide crocheters with so many extra details makes her one of my favorite crochet designers...I am able to follow along no matter what my skill level." – AllFreeCrochet.com
 
"If you’re like me, you find joining pieces of knit and crochet work to be a bit nerve-wracking.  This book features lovely motifs — snowflakes, flowers, stars, tiles — that can be joined as you go." - Austin-American Statesman
 
"Because I’m a bit of a technique geek, my favorite part of the book is in the back where she carefully explains how the technique works, and how you can use it to create your own designs.  One of the things I’m most excited to play with is using the technique with color-changing yarns.  Since you’re not breaking yarn between motifs, the projects in the book are all of one kind of yarn each." – Amy O’Neill Houck, crochet designer and author
 
"Yet another masterpiece by our beloved crochet designer Kristin Omdahl." – Faina Goberstein, knitwear designer and author
 
"Amazing designs.  This is the type of book that I like.  It is a pattern book, but it is also a method book...it shows you how to do some patterns, and tells you how to figure out others. This way, it opens up opportunities to unleash your creativity!" – Marty Miller, The Crochet Doctor and President of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA)
 
"It is mind-blowing awesome.  If you love granny motifs as much as I do, I really urge to you get the book and learn this technique.  It is so inspiring and fun, and I am in love with Kristin for creating such a great book for us to use!" - Robyn Chachula, crochet designer and author, Simply Crochet
 
"Beautiful projects...in addition to written instructions, the book also contains detailed stitch diagrams for every pattern as well as construction diagrams when needed and gorgeous photos of the projects." – Amy Shelton, Crochetville.org
 
"Kristin is one of the crochet (and knitting) communities' most influential designers and she creates some truly stunning pieces." - Jimmy Beans Wool
 
"If you love the look of motif crochet, but are hesitant to commit because of the ends...this book is your answer.  Shawls, hats, scarves, baby blankets...you want it, it's in here!" - Rebecca Velasquez, crochet designer and contributor, Simply Crochet
 
"Kristin brilliantly creates a way to avoid having to weave in all the ends and sew together a huge stack of crochet motifs when you're done with a project.  It's hard to say which project I'll make first from this book, since they're all fantastic." - Sara Wilburn, Sara Likes to Make Stuff
 
"The diagrams in the book are clear once you understand the method behind them.  So are the written directions.  Combine the two and you have a marvelous system that is truly unique." - Dana Wright, She Knits When She Should be Writing
 
"Kristin Omdahl brings crochet projects to a forefront of fashion.  Her designs are fresh, stylish and suitable for every body type." - Simona Merchant-Dest, knitwear designer
 
"Kristin Omdahl is known for her innovative techniques (at least by me she is) and this book is no exception.  Kristin has found ways to make items using motifs with the fewest number of yarn ends left to weave in." – Simona Merchant-Dest, knitwear designer
 
“This is the best reference I've yet found on the topic of crocheting seamless join-as-you-go motifs.” – About.com Guide to Crochet
 
“With this book, modular designs are no longer the boring side of crochet.  Fewer ends to weave in, more secure joins, and finer (and far fewer) seams make this book a great resource for any crocheter – beginner or advanced.” – CraftGossip.com Crochet Guide

Customer Reviews

Can't fault the book BUT.. Review by Paula

One of the main reasons I went ahead & purchased this was for the Star Edged Lace Shawl pattern that shows up in the preview. For whatever reason it didn't make it into the book.

Overall it's a great book with lovely patterns and I'd have been delighted with it if only the pattern I wanted was included.

As it is I'm disappointed, let down and out of pocket because Interweave do not refund digital downloads.
