I strongly recommend adding this book to your knitting library!
Wendy Berninger
Instructions are well layed out and are so short and easy to follow that I don't see the lack of symbol charts as a negative.
Jean Leinhauser
Found this book to be way more helpful than the Nicky Epstein series "Knitting... The Edge" series.

Format: Paperback
Any book with Lesley Stanfield's name on it rates a look from me. This English author, designer and editor
always comes up with something special, as she does in this book.

The variety of knitted trims is mind boggling: There's a great variety of borders, bands, and braids, many
trimmed with beads or sequins. Frills, flouces, and lacy edgings expand the mix. But wait -- there's more!
You'll love the loops and fringes, the insertions, and a whole section on unusual and charming knitted
flowers, leaves, and other fun things like a heart, a colorful butterfly, and a wonderful tassel with a knitted skirt. There's even a tiny Christmas stocking.

The photos are close up and clear, and you can see every stitch. Instructions are well layed out and are so short and easy to follow that I don't see the lack of symbol charts as a negative.

The trims are all both unusual and usable. This is a great book to give a knitting friend -- so buy two and
keep one for yourself.

But don't lend out your copy -- chances are you'll never get it back!

Found this book to be way more helpful than the Nicky Epstein series "Knitting... The Edge" series. Loads of ideas. I don't really care that there are no charts, I find it easy to work with out them and would definitely recommend this book for anyone who feels the same. Plus the designs are way cooler. Not a big fringe and bobble gal.

Lots of edgings I hadn't seen in other books and many that could be used for bag handles and belts. Good photos. I would love to buy this book (checked it out from the library), but the use of row-by-row instructions alone, without charts, would make it much less fun for me to use.

The variety of edgings to try from this book will entertain you for hours. I have so many little sticky notes going all the way around the pages of this book---marking oodles of pages of edgings for me to try---that it sort of resembles a porcupine! One thing I do to make double use of my experiments is to use tiny knitting needles and crochet thread to test these edgings, and when I'm done-----I have a bookmark to give as a gift! I just keep making it to the length I like a bookmark to be and I can also see if I like the look of that edging for a future project!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was sure this book was a winner because I have the Stanfield book of stitches which I use often and the reviews here were so positive. I'm not disappointed. Lack of charts doesn't bother me as the patterns are generally just a small number of rows. All the patterns are illustrated first in color together and then arranged with the instructions. Included here is the skill level. 5 projects are pictured at the end for ideas and there is a good index. Recommended.

This is a beautifully illustrated book with great explanations for any level of knitter. The trims are pretty, knit quickly and can be used on most anything, a t-shirt, little girl's skirt, pillow case, use your imagination. I saw the book at a friend's house, asked for one for my birthday and am now giving one to a very caring nurse who took care of my husband and was interested in it.

This book is a treasure. I am constantly lookng for ways to make garments, especially scarves, take on a bit of punch uaing edgings and trims. This is just the book for it. Pictures of trims were beautfully photographed, detailed, and clear. Directions repeated a smaller photograph of the trim, listed the difficulty of the trim (ie, beginner, intermediate, or advanced) and the directions are very clear.

This book is a must have for every knitter whether beginner or advanced - you'll get a host of ideas from it and your garments will never again be boring.

Beautiful patterns...but if you are learning or can only follow charts this isn't the book for you. Oh it would be great if it had both types of instructions.
