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

    • Just as expected

      I had seen this at Michaels Craft store for almost double the price and of course the coupon's they offer are excluded from books. I was doing a search online for a used book at least and it came up on overstock at a very reasonable price in comparison to the craft stores price which is pretty outrageouse to me. Love the book, already have 2 projects started. Shipping was a tad slow but arrived eventually.

    • Beautiful Crochet

      Beautiful photographs of beautiful projects. Makes me want to crochet motifs -- which I usually detest due to the additional work of attaching/seaming. There is good information on how to create your own seamless crochet creations. I haven't as yet tried any of the motifs or projects as I have too many others in the works that I have to finish first. But I am looking forward to expanding my crochet ability and knowledge through this book. I'm also looking forward to making gifts for myself :) and others from this book.
