Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Around the Corner Crochet Borders (Paperback)
When I crochet I really love making blankets so bought this book for some new ideas for the borders. It is a fairly small but thick book so actually quite handy for carrying around with your project if you crochet out & about. The instructions are clear and there are both written and chart versions. There are a wide variety of borders suitable for a range of abilities; some simple and others far more intricate. I really like this because it means you can have a simple border on a blanket that has a lot of detail in so that it doesn't detract from it or choose a fancier border for a plain blanket. There's 150 in total and I want to try the majority of them. The only reason I've given this book 4 stars and not 5 is because it only shows the borders, there's no examples of them on blankets and I think it would have been nice to see the different effects or some more advice on choosing the right border.
