Fans of seamless construction will rejoice. French Girl Knits features four types of said construction and provides excellent supplementary guides to each.
Shown here is side-to-side seamless construction, followed by top down seamless raglan, bottom-up seamless raglan, and bottom up seamless set in sleeve construction.
All patterns come in a nice range of sizes, and feature a variety of yarn weights.
Finally, the well illustrated glossary provides ten pages of guidance so you will be sure to execute any of the garments properly.
A wonderful book! Check back for an interview with Kristeen.
