Overview

She’s knitted On the Edge and Over the Edge, and now Nicky Epstein takes her love of embellishment Beyond the Edge, sharing more than 150 one-of-a-kind edgings and adornments for cuffs, collars, angles, corners, and necklines. With her signature inventiveness, Epstein provides an abundance of designs to take stitchers one step further.

The first two books in the series used swatches to illustrate edgings, but in this latest volume the finishings are incorporated into the actual design so knitters can see just how they’ll look. The patterns range in difficulty level, from simple and elegant ideas for beginners to complex and extraordinary techniques for advanced crafters to try. The projects include a bell-sleeve jacket with Celtic knot closure; a stylish cable-hooded wrap textured with bobbles, and a Fair Isle coat in eight different colors of yarn with twisted cord embellishment.

Booklist says of her work, “Epstein... transforms a once-grandmotherly-looking craft into a twenty-first century art form.” This particular collection has become a selection of The Crafter’s Choice Book Club.

Editorial Reviews

Nicky Epstein isn't just an award-winning knitter who has been honored with a one-woman retrospective at New York's Museum of Arts and Design; she's also a talented author of books on nearly every element of her specialty. In this trio of impressive offerings, the Vogue Knitting columnist describes hundreds of techniques and embellishments. As the subtitles indicate, these three paperbacks cover every phase of the crafts. Yarns we can live with.
