Format: Hardcover
This book follows the other two Epstein books, Knitting on the Edge and Knitting Over the Edge. It is a little more 'patterny' than the first two, in that they were more like an encyclopedia of small patterns for edgings and this one references the edgings to garments more, which may or may not be your taste. The instructions are well written but do require familiarity with knitting pattern terminology, although there is a key in the book. However, you then have to know how to do these techniques like yarn overs and knitting into back of st etc , so some knitting know-how is also assumed.
These are all lovely to look through and exciting to an experienced knitter. It is useful to have edgings all in one book and although quite big the book is a good format. If your are new to knitting it might still be lovely to look at but a bit challenging to work from, but start with the simple ones and READ the instructions, use the pictures to help you work out what you're supposed to be achieving, they are great, clear pics that really show the edges. Above all practise them before you try them on a garment so you don't get frustrated at your first attempt on a complete garment.
Inspiring to anyone though; recommended by an experienced knitter.

The first book of this series, Knitting On the Edge, delivered. It showed how to get creative without having to become a full-fledged designer. The photos are wonderful and it gets the creative juices going. The second book, Knitting Over the Edge, was a tad disappointing - useful, but not up to the caliber of the first, filled mostly with clever ideas, but not ones that I'd actually use. Thus, I thought twice before puchasing the third book, Knitting Beyond the Edge. But this one is the best of the bunch. It's full of clever ideas for collars, necklines, cuffs, and closures - even shows how to make some frog closures. With this book, the plainest of yarns, and the simplest of patterns, anyone can produce an article of clothing that's absolutely spectacular. The cleverness of Nicky Epstein is truly something special.

There is one thing missing from this book - charted patterns. It would be so much easier to follow the more complex patterns if they'd been shown in charts. Even so, it's still worthy of a five-star rating. It's a must-have book for anyone who loves to knit and doesn't want to just follow patterns. It's full of ideas that could be used by anyone from the barest beginner to the well-seasoned knitter.

What a book. Seemingly endless variety of ways to lift a garment from being nice to being special. Great source of inspiration for those who like to design their own knits.
A good book to buy. You won't be disappointed.

Essential for anyone interested in adapting existing knitting patterns to personalise them, or those interested in designing their own garments. Lots and lots of ideas for you to adapt/use in your own knitteds. Quite inspirational - your needles won't be able to keep pace with your knitting aspirations. I find it just lovely to browse through too.

I like advanced knitting techniques and tend to work in the modular way (putting various ideas together and adjust/altering patterns). Epstein's Trilogy (Knitting On/Over/Beyond the Edge) are a must-have for knitters with a taste for individuality, craft finesse and a need for a library of inspiring ideas. The layout is very clear, uncluttered and professional - yet very accessible. Each book is subdivided into topics and visual samples within chapters are presented in one colour-rage (e.g. green, orange, pink, etc.). There are variations on themes to help with practical application and each chapter is headed by a fairly useful sample bigger project the instructions to which are given at the rear of the book in careful detail.
These books are not suitable for the novice or occasional knitter as much experience is generally needed in a variety of knitting skills (cables, lace, intarsia, fair isle, etc.) and many samples are very work intensive - either because of the complexity of the pattern or because of extensive 'finishing off'. And yet, a novice with aspirations may find much inspiration and motivation for further development. And at under £10 including P&P very affordable and value for money.

One omission from the book which I missed badly - there is no indication for gauge for the collars and cuffs where it really would be necessary. I guess trial and error starting at DK with needle size 4mm...

The book arrived even before I expected and it was in pristine condition. I also like the book very much, but even if I did'nt the purchase was a good experience.
