The patterns are in written format and are clear and easy to understand. Where there are new techniques used there are diagrams for you to follow. I love the fact that there are so many different styles that go with any personality and any type of project. Within the edging patterns there are also patterns for projects that use some of the edgings in the book. There is the most amazing lacy lavender coat. The coat really shows off the difference an edging can make to a project. Then there is a nature's garden pullover. I love the butterflies the are around the edges of the pullover. The knit-look dishcloth is practical yet beautiful. I'll be making these as presents for Christmas. The there is a beaded wrap that shows off what you can do with beads and crochet.The spike stitch afghan is amazing. The use of the different stitches and edge make the most beautiful afghan. Then it's onto the fringes and a beautiful scarf which really does show off what you can do with a fringe. The twisted stitch rope purse really does show off the points edges. It's such fun and very practical. It's a nice small size that will still fit in all the essentials. The pretty in pink baby blanket is so cute and uses the ruffles to make the most beautiful baby blanket. With so many edges - 140+ this is one book that you will use time and again.It really is super girlie and super fun. * Crochet Addict UK *
A collection of edgings, including many different types, split into groups such as lace, fringe, points, floral and so on. Each section has a pattern. All in all you will find over 140 edgings. I like the medallions, the ribs are interesting, there are even bunny faces and beaded edgings. However I think the reason you should buy this book is for the coat or long cardi on the front cover. I love it and the book has full pattern instructions. This book is for any level from beginner upwards. At the back there is a very basic guide to crochet. The instructions look easy to follow and the photos are clear.
