No to Sewing Up!,
This review is from: French Girl Knits: Innovative Techniques, Romantic Details, and Feminine Designs (Paperback)
This is a fantastic idea and a fantastic book. I have always felt that a perfectly knitted or crocheted garment can be spoiled by bad sewing up so I have preferred to crochet because it was possible to make a garment with less or no stitching at all. This book has made it possible to knit beautiful garments without the need for stitching or with less stitching. I have always loved knitting in the round and using circular needles and these patterns are ideal. The book is very clear and explains the techniques very well so that you can learn and adapt other patterns as well as giving you some fantastic patterns. Sleeves without a seam, fantastic and knitting from the top down means you can easily adapt the size and length of a garment with ease, what more could you ask for except, of course, more time to knit! I love it!
