Overview

Step-by-step instructions and symbol charts put these 139 creative new border designs within reach for beginning and advanced crocheters alike. If you’re ready to chart your own crocheted course, Edie Eckman offers plenty of helpful design advice, including how to choose an appropriate border for each project and how to incorporate an element from the main stitch pattern into a new border design. She then explains, with the help of close-up photos, how the same pattern can have dramatically different results depending on the weight of the yarn. With each pattern diagramed to approach in both rounds and rows, Every Which Way Crochet Borders is an inventive and invaluable resource.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Here’s everything you need to know to add the perfect edging to your project, from color choices to structure. More than just a pattern book, this is a creative learning experience and an inspiration. It deserves a place on every crocheter’s bookshelf, though it’ll get too much use to stay on the shelf for long!” — Tamara Kelly, mooglyblog.com

“With picture tutorials and both written instruction and charts for each pattern, this book is a ‘must have’ for any crocheter’s library. Add a border that is bold, a powerful pop of color, or a delicate detailed edge to any project. I guarantee you will find success with every border pattern you make.” — Marly Bird, Crochet and Knitwear Designer and Host of the Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird
 
Library Journal

The latest from the prolific Eckman (Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs) focuses on crocheted borders and edgings—her second book on the topic. The borders are presented in stitch dictionary format, listing the necessary stitch count for repeats, plus written and charted instructions. A directory featuring small, full-color photos of the borders, serves as a visual index to the designs. Eckman also provides details on the mechanics of adding crocheted edgings to complement crocheted, knitted, and woven fabrics. VERDICT Eckman's book joins a crowded field of crocheted-edging guides, but the visual approach and the focus on choosing suitable and complementary designs set it apart.
