A modern take on brioche stitch with gorgeous wearable garments and accessories that knitters will love. Knitters will create striking colorwork and beautiful brioche cable designs with Brioche Chic. Author Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark offers a solid introduction to brioche knitting and a collection of 22 garments and accessories for women and men, including hats, scarves, cowls, mittens, pullovers, vests, and cardigans. Striking brioche stitch designs that are not overwhelming or full of complicated techniques will reel in readers to this fun style of knitting. Starting with the basics, Brioche Chic offers mini collections of garments revolving around a specific set of techniques. Basic brioche knitting starts the first section, as Mercedes shows how the basic rib pattern can be adapted to simple motifs, lace, and various textures. Later, she offers more complex designs such as cables and various types of two-color brioche. Some of the featured garments are all-over brioche, while others integrate brioche with stockinette stitch for more streamlined, flattering designs.

Imagine knitting a beautiful sweater without the stressful obstacles of sewing, seaming, and grafting. Welcome to Knitwear designer Kristen TenDyke's world of Finish-Free Knits! While exploring these 20 designs, you will discover stitch-free solutions to previously frustrating obstacles needed to finish a design. Kristen will teach you to knit sweaters with no assembly required. Through clever planning and some simple techniques, the projects in Finish-Free Knits are shaped and joined during knitting--without sacrificing the pockets, buttonbands, shaped collars, and more that is accomplished in most designs by sewing together separate pieces. In addition, learn how to shape armholes, join pieces as you go, use short-rows for shaping, and more. Once these stress-free finishing techniques are learned, you will enjoy the freedom to apply variations of each method in projects beyond the book. With Finish-Free Knits you can avoid the dreaded "Some Assembly Required" phrase forever.
