    Excellent collection of border designs.

    This is the best collection of border designs I've found yet. Although every one of them is pictured in a bland tan-colored yarn, there are some truly fantastic intricate border patterns in there. The book has easy to follow instructions, tons of pictures, and a comprehensive collection of patterns. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a border for a project or a way to spruce up an old garment or decoration.

    Great variety

    This is an excellent collection of crocheted borders. The photos are clear and simple, as are the instructions. An added plus is that every pattern is charted in addition to the written instructions, waylaying any confusion over how each border is constructed. Also, each pattern is numbered rather than named, which makes it much easier to recall which patterns I preferred. The variety is immense. I also recommend The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs. It is a great companion to this.

    Two Downsides:
    1) I'm not a huge fan of how the patterns are organized. They are organized by stitch - puff stitch, chain stitch, hdc, etc. - but there have been several cases in which I am completely flummoxed as to why the author placed a certain pattern in a certain section.
    2) No corners! This is a HUGE negative, but I think the variety and charts make up for it, though not completely. There are ways around this of course, but be wary that if you want to work a corner for any of these patterns, you will have to design one yourself.

    Comprehensive library of crochet Borders.

    Really enjoy using this book!.. The instructions and diagrams make them very easy to use. The only thing this book lacks is corners!!.. Some of easier ones I've been able to create, but others haven't been able to figure them out. Regardless this is a great book to use on afgans, doilies, baby blankets, projects of all sizes. I highly recommend this book.
