Overview

In Knitting Over the Edge, bestselling author Nicky Epstein brings knitters a new reference guide to embellishment, edging and appliqué. Perfect for advanced knitters looking to bring a professional finish to their knitted projects, Epstein provides techniques for cords, borders and fringes that knitters can replicate and adapt to fit their own designs. Following her hit knitting sourcebook, Knitting on the Edge, where she took the humble rib to new heights, Epstein presents this perfect companion, now available in paperback. The striking patterns will keep knitters of every level busy experimenting with different types of ties, loops, knots, braids, twists, bobbles and more.

Barbara Jacobs calls Knitting Over the Edge, “the ultimate collection of more than 350 choices for ribs, cords, appliques and colors.”

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Knitting on the Edge, Epstein's first collection of more than 300 decorative borders for knitting, is now joined by Knitting over the Edge, a collection of new border treatments that can be used for edges, used as decorative elements, or incorporated into the overall design of a garment. Each design comes with instructions and an illustrative full-color swatch. Patterns include unusual rib designs as well as cords, appliques, and a large section of stranded and intarsia edge treatments. Five illustrative projects (e.g., a beautiful beaded floral wrap with intarsia borders) complement the book. An excellent choice for large public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
