“Every Which Way Crochet Borders” is a wonderful resource for me. I have added borders to receiving blankets for years. I buy the cute flannel print fabric, serge it, and then crochet a border using cotton thread. I have six go-to borders and thought that was enough. Once I got this book, my go-to borders are simply considered “elements” in this book versus the unusual and beautiful border patterns that are included. I'll be having a lot of fun adding new borders to the blankets and I am also inspired to add them to scarves, wraps, and afghans as well. There is a picture of a necklace that I want to try, too. I only wish the pattern had been included but I will figure it out – I plan to use Spangle yarn for that project.
Between the numbered borders and the element borders, there are 139 borders in this book. Ms. Eckman details the types of use of borders, how colors work, how the weight of the yarn makes a difference and more. I especially appreciate the pages which show examples of the same border stitched with different color/weight of yarn. It visually shows how the various components of design can effect the overall look of the project.
The crochet terms are in US standard and each of the patterns are presented in both written and symbol charts. The book is a hardback with an interior spiral binding. This is great as the spiral is not exposed and won't snag any yarn at hand. In addition to the explanation pages at the front of the book and the patterns (with full color example photos), there is an appendix with an explanation of reading crochet patterns both written and symbols(great for beginning crocheters), a stitch key of written and symbol equivalents, a table of attributes (gives a visual checklist of each border), a border directory (color photo thumbnails of all 139 borders with page number), and a glossary with illustrations of many types of crochet stitches.
This is a book that I will use extensively and one that I will be including as a holiday gift this year for family and friend who crochet.
In addition to the copy of this book I purchased on Amazon, I was provided a temporary digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
**Was a little disappointed page 109-118 were put in upside down and backwards.
Doesn't effect the info just a bit annoying!
