5.0 out of 5 stars Design your own or embellish an existing pattern 18 Mar 2004
By Joanna Daneman VINE VOICE
This diverting book of hundreds of edgings and trims is fun to read. And it is infinitely useful. You can take a simple pattern and add one of this edgings or trims to punch it up a bit, or you can even embellish a store-bought jersey and make it special.
Some of the edgings are based on "i-cord"--that three-stitch round cord knitted end-for-end on two needles. Others are lace edgings, ball fringe, regular fringe, and there is a section of knitted appliques like flowers and leaves. Great for kids' clothes, or for covering up a moth-bite or stain on a beloved old jumper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super book 3 Feb 2009
This is a real treasure trove of ideas. Almost of a synopsis of her later books. If you want variety and a range of ideas for many projects this is an excellent book. This book comes off the self often and not just for knitting projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knitted Embellishments 20 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This a lovley book has everything I need so many of these books have mostly crochet which I don't do but it is only embellishments so if you want clothes to knit you won't find them but it's still worth buying and it's a good price

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book 13 May 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another great book by a well known author. Lots to inspire and use for designing or just to alter a plain project. Everything is there from simple but just right edgings to fantastic fastenings.

4.0 out of 5 stars what a compendium! 24 May 2010
A lovely book, richly illustrated, with more edging ideas than you could shake a woolly stick at! I've withheld a star merely because I haven't found time yet to try any of these ideas out (poor time management my end, not Nicky Epstein's fault) but my friend who's a champion knitter gave it her vote of full confidence.
