I really like the charts, and unusually, this book includes both charts for in-the-round as well as back and forth versions of the edgings. The colors were varied more than the author's previous motif book, and I thought they were prettier.

It has nice colors, good type, and great schematics. There are truly borders, and if you see one on the cover you like, it will be in the book I checked four of my favorites, and they were all there. Unfortunately, the border you like may not be easy to find. This book would have been improved with a picture index of the borders available collected on a few pages at the beginning OR a numerical index of which borders are found where on the covers as some doily books are known to do.
Before you buy, you should note that the book is oddly dimensioned. The picture Amazon shows is the entire cover The book itself might also have benefited from a spiral rather than a standard paperback-type binding. Next, the borders are different from what I have seen in other books. I have at least 10 border and edging books, and the ones here were different. These edgings used front and back loop construction to get ridges in creative locations.
They had clusters, chains, lacy, and solid. There was a great deal of variability in style from border to border, yet virtually all were worthwhile. Even if I made an afghan a month, it would take more than 10 years to use all the designs I really liked. Most of the borders were not more than 4 rounds, though many had suggestions of how to make them wider.
The colors were varied more than the author's previous motif book, and I thought they were prettier. Then, there are a few things I would have changed. At least half of the borders have what I would call a "good" corner--a special treatment of the corner to make it stand out or a true right angle corner.
The other half of the borders do say what to do at the corner, but the corner treatments are basically to work the border along the entire edge, add a few very boring stitches to keep the corner from cupping, and then start the next edge.
Basically, the corner would be "flat. Several of the borders with arches did this instead of having some "design" or short arch at the corner.
With the border described, I might put 9dc in the center of the 3sc group and have the skip 2 stitches before and after the border preceded by a sc, then 5dc. I would have added a few stitches to the pattern and created a true design for the corner Then, an option could have existed to have a pointed or flat corner depending on how many stitches were worked along the edge.
Thankfully, with even 75 good corners, I am not likely to use up the design ideas any time soon. Finally, I do highly recommend this book. Despite the suggestions for improvement given in this review, this set of patterns is one I can see using for years to come.
The vast majority of the borders are lovely, well-written, and well-diagrammed. The charts are helpful for seeing structure, and they are given for both a corner and for a straight edge. The colors are pretty; the tips for working and introduction are well-done and helpful; and the overall presentation is top-notch. This book would be a great addition to any crochet border library.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Really good book - I got the Kindle version. It was on my wish list, and Amazon sent me an email telling me it was on special, so I picked it up. I really like the charts, and unusually, this book includes both charts for in-the-round as well as back and forth versions of the edgings. Of course, there are written patterns for each border too. I prefer the charts because there is no ambiguity. Directions are in the front, and typical information is in the back with the borders in between.
Instructions are very clear and concise. I wouldn't be without this book and I know many others in the crochet community ravelry, in particular who feel the same way.
Someone will post that they used border 51 from "the book" and we all know what they mean. There is a border style for every person and project and, as already mentioned, the corners are addressed. I always look to this book first when I need a border or edging. Yes, there are no names for the patterns, only numbers, but I cannot imagine trying to come up with meaningful names, can you? No, there is not a picture index and that could have been helpful. But I enjoy perusing the pages to find something that works for me and mentally or literally bookmarking others to try so it hasn't been a problem.
Good visuals, nice charts and bonus idea.. I have been wanting this book for some time. I was a little disappointed in the types of borders presented. I was expecting a little more variation and out-of-the-box styles, I guess, but the borders presented in this book are mostly conservative, with an emphasis on color combination.
Not that that's a bad thing - it's good to have some representative color formats - but there's just not much else. I would have liked to see lots more odd or complicated borders, textured borders, or intricate patterns.
This is a good reference to have, if you are really not a good ideas-person, but if you like high difficulty or unique styles, this probably won't add much to your library.
I'm so happy with this purchase! I'm an intermediate crocheter and was looking for more borders for flannel receiving blankets. I've been super disappointed with what's out there. I love that this book is in color; the photograph of each border is large enough that you can really see detail and the instructions are very clear. In addition, the ideas for combining colors really opened my eyes to new possibilities.
One of my favorite features is that the author gives you the number your base row needs to be divisible by for the pattern to work.
I'm not actually working with a hard corner but a rounded one and just ignored the corner instructions but it's nice to know they'll be there when I need them.
The book itself is an odd size 8. I actually photocopied the one I was working with for ease of transport and use.
I don't think I'll need to look elsewhere for edgings for a very long time. This gorgeous book just arrived in the mailbox and I hurried out to get it. Full Name Comment goes here. Are you sure you want to Yes No. Be the first to like this. No Downloads. Views Total views.
