Comments to eBook Crocheting on the Edge: Ribs Bobbles*Ruffles*Flora*Fringes*Points Scallops
Bloodfire
You can be sure that any book by Nicky Epstein is a good one, and this is one is good. Crocheters mostly use borders for trimming afghans, but many of the innovative ones here are perfect for embellishing clothing.

The frontispiece photo is of a gorgeous small afghan that is a true crochet tour de force -- but it is made up of a large variety of spectacular motifs and medallions and has little to do with borders. Once again the publisher has followed its policy of "don't tell the customer what is in the book" because the cover doesn't let you know tht you get not only borders but instructions for some wonderful garments, Many people now buy books on line and don't have an opportunity to see a contents page or glance through to see what's inside.

The book begins with one border which is photographed worked in many different types, textures and weights of yarn, which is a great graphic demonstration of how yarn choice changes the look of a pattern.

I think one of the author's intents is to show knitters how to use crocheted borders on knitted projects, so the next section is four pages of kntted squares, each edged with a different crocheted border. This too is a great idea, except that the borders were mostly worked onto the knitting in such a way that they distort the
shape of the knitted pieces. This might discourage some knitters from even trying to add a crocheted border.
There is a way to avoid distortion, but no help in doing this is provided.

Then the section on borders begins -- and not only are there written instructions, but complete symbol diagrams for each one. Thank you, thank you! The section starts with the most uninteresting borders,
but don't get discouraged: they get better as you go along. THe designs range from frilly to fun to elaborate to simple-but-lovely.

The garment patterns are near the end of the book. They are all crocheted, but the patterns are written in the typical knitting pattern style (tell them as little as possible) instead of the more expansive and detailed style crocheters are accustomed to. But with symbol diagrams also provided, most crocheters will
manage.

Unless the knitter or crocheter who uses this book is very experienced, they may run into trouble. Little help is given for how to work stitches such as reverse single crochet, a technique which gives many crocheters a lot of trouble. When this is called for in a pattern, there is just a cryptic note saying "see page TK". This page was referenced for technical help a couple of times,but I could find no page TK. Maybe it's just my bad eyesight!

On page 195 is a section headed TECHNIQUES where I assumed to find crochet technique help, but all that was there was how to make lazy daisy and French knot embroidery stitches. At least one border is done in Tunisian crochet, so you better already know how to do it if you want to make that border.

If you are not an experienced crocheter, better brush up on your skills before you add this beautiful book to
your library. And don't give it to your favorite knitter for Christmas unless you know she crochets!

Wonderful - Book!!! Great new ideas, pictures & stitch mapping (which I love), along with clear written stitch instructions.
The quality of the book was great. Better than I anticipated
The price was so reasonable.
Delivery was expedient.
A terrific book for both Knitters & Crocheters!!

OK so this book isn't for the beginner but if you are looking for ways to add some real excitement to your crocheted items this book is it! The borders in here are a blast to do and I love the texture and depth they give a finished project. So much fun! I highly recommend this for those into wearable art.

I can't believe how beautiful these finishes are. Just a little time to update a project you've already done or finish a new one.

I EXPECTED MORE- THERE IS ONLY SEVERAL GOOD IDEAS- THE REST IS NOT PARTICULARLY BEAUTIFUL OR USEFUL AND IS AVAILABLE IN ANY OTHER KNITTING /CROCHETING BOOK.
I think the most treasured gift that I have ever received was a gorgeous set of sheets that my grandmother gave me when I got married. Beautiful, smooth white percale cotton, she hand crocheted a gorgeous scalloped border across the top of the sheet and around the open edge of the pillowcases, all done in a fine white cotton thread with tiny steel crochet needles. I cherished those gorgeous sheets for decades.

There are thousands of gorgeous crochet borders that have been developed over the years. Nicky Epstein has assembled a collection of more than 200 of them in her latest, Crocheting on the Edge: Ribs & Bobbles*Ruffles*Flora*Fringes*Points & Scallops. While Nicky does include patterns for 9 different projects ranging from a simple trim on a purchased t-shirt to an intricate shawl, nearly all of the edging patterns are reference patterns that can be adapted to a variety of projects and sizes of yarns. Directions are given in both traditional crochet abbreviations and graphing for those who prefer to count stitches.

While the included borders range from simple to complex, very few of the included patterns are suitable for beginners.

Grandma's $0.02 - Nice reference book for those who like to design their own projects.
