HASH(0x9e53860c) out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY KNITTER 16 Dec. 2007
By Jean Leinhauser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Any book with Lesley Stanfield's name on it rates a look from me. This English author, designer and editor
always comes up with something special, as she does in this book.

The variety of knitted trims is mind boggling: There's a great variety of borders, bands, and braids, many
trimmed with beads or sequins. Frills, flouces, and lacy edgings expand the mix. But wait -- there's more!
You'll love the loops and fringes, the insertions, and a whole section on unusual and charming knitted
flowers, leaves, and other fun things like a heart, a colorful butterfly, and a wonderful tassel with a knitted skirt. There's even a tiny Christmas stocking.

The photos are close up and clear, and you can see every stitch. Instructions are well layed out and are so short and easy to follow that I don't see the lack of symbol charts as a negative.

The trims are all both unusual and usable. This is a great book to give a knitting friend -- so buy two and
keep one for yourself.

But don't lend out your copy -- chances are you'll never get it back!

HASH(0x9e602ae0) out of 5 stars Great for project ideas! 25 Nov. 2007
By ponypony - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Found this book to be way more helpful than the Nicky Epstein series "Knitting... The Edge" series. Loads of ideas. I don't really care that there are no charts, I find it easy to work with out them and would definitely recommend this book for anyone who feels the same. Plus the designs are way cooler. Not a big fringe and bobble gal.

HASH(0xa029af30) out of 5 stars No charts 18 Oct. 2007
By Cheap and Lazy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Lots of edgings I hadn't seen in other books and many that could be used for bag handles and belts. Good photos. I would love to buy this book (checked it out from the library), but the use of row-by-row instructions alone, without charts, would make it much less fun for me to use.

HASH(0x9e382a68) out of 5 stars Great book! 30 Dec. 2007
By Bookman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The variety of edgings to try from this book will entertain you for hours. I have so many little sticky notes going all the way around the pages of this book---marking oodles of pages of edgings for me to try---that it sort of resembles a porcupine! One thing I do to make double use of my experiments is to use tiny knitting needles and crochet thread to test these edgings, and when I'm done-----I have a bookmark to give as a gift! I just keep making it to the length I like a bookmark to be and I can also see if I like the look of that edging for a future project!

HASH(0x9e6028c4) out of 5 stars good assortment 20 Sept. 2008
By M. Poller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was sure this book was a winner because I have the Stanfield book of stitches which I use often and the reviews here were so positive. I'm not disappointed. Lack of charts doesn't bother me as the patterns are generally just a small number of rows. All the patterns are illustrated first in color together and then arranged with the instructions. Included here is the skill level. 5 projects are pictured at the end for ideas and there is a good index. Recommended.
