|Blissful Flowers Shawl|
Since this technique is new, Kirstin included an instructional video with the book so that we can learn exactly how to follow the charts when joining motifs seamlessly. She offers wide variety of designs: ranging from simple projects, on which you can learn the seamless technique, to more complex where you learn additional tricks and methods on how to shape seamlessly.
The book is divided into 4 chapters: Shawls, Accessories, Home Decor, and Babies and Kids. It's hard for me to pick my favorite projects because all of the projects in this book are very unique and I'd like to make them all. But based on the limited time I have to commit to crochet for pure fun, I can only pick a few projects and that's how I am picking my favorite designs in this book. Here we go:
