Every Which Way Crochet Borders: Book Review

Edie Eckman has just released a new book called Every Which Way Crochet Borders, and I'm thrilled to review it and to participate in her blog tour.

Every Which Way Crochet Borders (Review by Susan Carlson of Felted Button)
Lucky me--I've got my hands on this really amazing book. I'm not just saying it's amazing because they gifted it to me. Let me tell you why I love it.

  • SPIRAL binding. (Seriously, how great is it that you can lay it flat while you work. Brilliant, I tell ya!)
  • 139 border patterns!! (That's some amazing variety, right?)
  • Each pattern includes the following:
    • Clear instructions for each round--that also show the color changes used in the sample.
    • Stitches & notes sections that includes easy to follow special stitch instructions and tips.
    • Close-up color photo of the border.
    • Stitch diagram including the multiples and corners.
    • Attributes--like "reversible", "undulating", "layered" or "wide". There is even a table of all of the attributes if you are searching for a specific border style.
  • Trouble-shooting borders that don't lay flat, using color to enhance your border, determining the stitch multiples you need, fudging stitch counts, and handling corners are all addressed--and more.
  • Complete border directory for finding the perfect border for your project at a glance. See...?

Every Which Way Crochet Borders Book Review by Felted Button

Truthfully--I'll be using this book a lot. In fact, I've got a design on my hook as we speak and will be needing a border for it. I'm feeling confident that I'll find just the inspiration I need in this book.
