1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Hayley Cann TOP 100 REVIEWER on Dec 8 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nicky Epstein is very imaginative and she puts that imagination to anyone's reach with this book on borders. 350 borders, in 6 sections: ribs (or stitches that could be substituted for ribs on a sweater or anyplace you might want to use ribs), ruffles (and as much variation as you might want on the topic), lace (lacy stitches with an emphasis on yo/dec types of motifs), fringes (almost all of the borders shown are actually knitted, with the exception of tassels), flora (with an emphasis on motifs that represent nature), and point and picots (some bobbles and geometrics).

I think the weakest section is the one on lace, but maybe that's just the illusion given by the relative fount of newly published book on the topic of lace and the astonishing number of border options in those publications. The other sections are wonderful just because of the number of different ideas. It should give anyone ideas to customize a project or even start one from scratch to suit the border.

Another compliment to give the book is that there are patterns included as inspiration and they help to see how the border elements might be used to enhance a project. There are 3 sweaters, one cardi, two scarves and one ruffled bag. They are fun pieces, but of course, not the focus of the book.

The book's editing is fine, but it would have been interesting to use charts for some of the more complex stitches.

This book is a wonderful resource for people wanting to try different edgings, or even just trying to find a new and fancy way to make a scarf. I investigated this book at the library before ordering. When ordering, Amazon said it would take 7 to 15 business days to reach me. It got here in two days. Well protected in solid boxing. In some cases it takes old stitches and applies them in new ways; full patterns in lovely yarns are also included. My friends are drooling (neatly) over this book. I suspect they'll be ordering their own copies before long! I am very happy with my order.

Once I got the book, I started to work on the scarf that was shown on the cover. I used pink yarn instead of blue, it looks even better. However, this book only have few projects for you to follow, if you want to knit a sweater with those edges, you have to calculate everything on your own with those edge patterns.
Moreover, the second book she published is even better - "knitting Over the Edge: The Second Essential Collection of Decorative Borders"!!
