Join the seamless revolution! Kristin Omdahl debuts her revolutionary, one-of-kind seamless motif joining crochet technique in Seamless Crochet. 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. Seamless Crochet will transform the way you approach every crocheted motif-based design, giving you professional crochet results in a fraction of the time.

A seamless lace crochet motif pattern for a roomy, oversized, asymmetric cardigan that hangs lower in the back than the front. The batwing sleeves drape beautifully and gives a cape-like look, yet the comfy fit of a cardigan. The garment is "one-size-fits-most" and is designed to be oversized and hang loosely like a shawl or cape. The garment is likely best fit for medium or larger frames. If you are petite or would like a slightly smaller, tighter cardigan, you can reduce motifs by using a smaller crochet hook, or by omitting one or two rounds of the motif pattern while creating the garment. A very comfortable and versatile piece that instantly dresses up a simple tank or tee. It can also be used as a beautiful beach coverup.
