Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knitting Over the Edge: The Second Essential Collection of Decorative Borders (Hardcover)
I love this book, I bought it last year and have since had a wonderful time using my favourite designer patterns but adding borders/edgings from this. The look is so different on each one, there's a selection of two colour edgings (simple fair isle style), knitted flowers leaves and cords to applique onto the edge, and borders instead of ribbing. The book has a picture of each design with instructions for working next to it. The pattern stitch is shown as (multiple of 6 sts plus 5) or (multiple of 5sts plus 3) etc making it easy to incorporate into any knitted item, or for repeating several times to provide squares for afghans, I've even used some as top edges for socks. For me the best thing about this book - I can use these designs on anything I want to, giving great individuality to my needlework.
