I first got this book from a library, it was so good that I purchased a copy of my own as I know it will become a reference book for many of my projects. This is my first book by this Nicky Epstein, but when I was in the library I looked through both "Knitting over the edge" and "Knitting on the edge" and "Knitted flowers" and found that "Knitting over the edge" had more projects that looked interesting to me. It also had a nice variety of over the edge, applique, ribs and cords projects where the other two books were more "specialized".

I love making unique looking projects, and technique of knitting over the edge really helps me achieve this goal. The patterns may look complex, but they are not difficult and really enhance the look of my knitted pieces.

The goal of the book it to show different ways of finishing and decorating the edge of the garment: ribs, fringes, loops, tussles, and more. My favorite are cords. I've never seen the unique approach the author demonstrates of decorating the edge with loops and circles made with knitted cords! I also liked the knitted applique which you see in the cover image.

The book is illustrated with wonderful photos, they really make the projects and ideas in your head come alive. The book has 160 pages, and over 350 edging ideas.

I really appreciated that the author showed how different techniques look when done in different yarns, it really changes the look and it is helpful to see the outcome on the pages of the book before you try it yourself.

My only complaint about this beautiful book that some pages are printed in white font on pink background, and for my presbyopic eyes the contrast is too low to see well.

I must like this book, I bought it twice! I thought it was a new Nicky Epstein book and bought it again just recently. Thankfully, Amazon let me return it... don't know why it did not show as a prior purchase... maybe was too excited at the prospect of a new Nicky Epstein knitting book??? Ha! Ha! But, is a great book for knitters and essential for reference... and Amazon always has a good price on these books...

One of the things I like most about Nicky's books is the beauty of the book and pictures of the designs. I ordered the paperback version, as I felt it might take wear and tear a little better when taking it back and forth to knit stores. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed! The paperback shows all designs in an ugly orange color with a pink front! It totally took away from the beauty of the book and none ofvthe samples looked appealing in this ridiculous color! It actually cheapened Nicky's talent. The hard hardback is beautiful! I can't imagine who vould have possibly picked that color, but please don't let them touch her books again!

I will rate it with six stars if i could. Wonderful ideas, decorative borders for every level (beginner, intermediate, experienced).
I love the pink pattern shawl with roses included on this book. Every knitter need to get this book. Ideal for self teaching. You never going to regret this purchase.

Just loved!!!
