Product description

Borders often require turning a corner shaping the edgings around a 90-degree angle without breaking the pattern. This is rarely simple; add too few stitches at a corner and the work rounds inward; too many stitches, and the piece begins to ruffle awkwardly. Unfortunately, most published edging patterns fail to include specific instructions for turning the corner, leaving crafters to fend for themselves. Edie Eckman comes to the rescue in "Around-the-Corner Crochet Borders", a collection of 150 colorful crochet frames, each with detailed instructions for working around a corner. Instructions are offered both as text and as charts for working in-the-round; back-and-forth charts are also included for when that method is more appropriate. Photographs of finished borders, each turning a 90-degree corner, allow readers to see the details up close. Borders range from the delicate to the flamboyant and are sure to appeal to a new generation of trend-setting crafters. Offering practical solutions to one of needlecrafts most vexing challenges, "Around-the-Corner Crochet Borders" is an essential addition to every crocheters reference library. With this book, marvelous crochet borders are just around the corner.

A wonderful book that is clear and concise in it's instruction, everything is charted and the borders are grouped into fairly logical progressions.
The use of colour and contrast are true inspiration sources for more than just borders.
Well worth every penny and one of the more used books in my reference collection.
