Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Characterized by a wealth of whimsical decorative details and an imaginative use of color, Epstein's designs are well known to readers of such major knitting magazines as Interweave Knits and Knitters. Now Epstein has put together an encyclopedic collection of knitted motifs, borders and edgings, cords, fringes, tassels, and surface embroidery stitches. Entries for the 350 embellishments featured include color photographs plus written and charted patterns and hints for incorporating embellishments into handmade or store-bought knits. Not a "project book," this work, like Barbara Walker's stitch treasuries, is an essential reference for knitters in search of ways to enhance knitted garments. Highly recommended, especially for large public libraries and textile collections. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
