I always struggle with borders, which can really make a project sing when you get the right one. This book is very inspiring and many of the patterns are simple, but very effective. I found the instructions clear and concise.
I'm so pleased I bought this :-) I think my border angst is over.
Nb The book does use US crochet terms, but it's easy to get a 'translation' and there is an explanation in the book of US to UK. Most stitches beyond the norm are explained within the relevant pattern, which I found very helpful.
I am particularly chuffed that she gives the formulas (plus examples for anyone like me who is atrocious at math), on how to work out how many stitches will be needed to make the boarders and, crucially, to keep the pattern repeat around the corner of, say, a blanket. This is invaluable information, I have just finished a double bed blanket, which I edged and I forced the edging I used to fit around the corners, which entailed a fair big of ripping out and starting again, so yes, very pleased to have a formula for working this out next time.
And yes the edging designs in here are lovely - not all appeal, but the vast majority do. It is a book I like to just flick through and look at the beautiful photos, as well as actually use.
I would really recommend this book.
Once the squares are done, it makes a huge difference to add a nice edge.
The terms are US crochet.
The best thing about it is that if you loose track on the written instructions, you can check the diagrams as well, and the corner is included in the diagram, brilliant!
Each page has one pattern, so many to choose from!
My friends in the charity group all use this book for their borders...
The instructions at the beginning of the book are invaluable and the suggestion of how to attach a crochet border to a woven fabric is a revelation.
