Early Book Review: Every Which Way Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman

Every Which Way Crochet Borders: 100 Patterns for Customized Edgings by Edie Eckman is currently scheduled for release on January 24 2017. Step-by-step instructions and symbol charts put these new border designs within reach for beginning and advanced crocheters alike. If you’re ready to chart your own crocheted course, Edie Eckman offers plenty of helpful design advice, including how to choose an appropriate border for each project and how to incorporate an element from the main stitch pattern into a new border design. She then explains, with the help of close-up photos, how the same pattern can have dramatically different results depending on the weight of the yarn. With each pattern diagrammed to approach in both rounds and rows, Every Which Way Crochet Borders is an inventive and invaluable resource. 

Every Which Way Crochet Borders is a solid resource for crafters of all skill levels. The advice and instructions are well written, understandable, and practical. Some of the information might be old hat to experienced crocheters, however even the most experienced crafter sometimes need reminders. I think everyone can find a new boarder to use or a technique that will add some extra flare or perfect finish for the projects. While I already own several books of stitches and borders, I just might have to add another.
