Book Review - Every Which Way Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman, Storey Publishing

If you love to crochet blankets, shawls, scarves or washcloths, then you'll know how important it is to choose the right border for your project.

Edie Eckman's latest reference book will help you to finish off your projects perfectly, with 139 beautifully designed borders.

I have a blanket with a plain border that I can't wait to add a more decorative border to. It was once a long term WIP as it took me a couple of years to make, and I thought it was an FO, but having seen some of the gorgeous borders in Edie's book, I think a more decorative border would finish it off perfectly.

I was invited to take part in a blog tour of this lovely book by Storey Publishing and in return they sent me a copy. All of the views are my own and I was not asked to write anything specific, other than to write a review.

I decided to create a video review - so here goes ............. (just click on the play button and mute the music if you prefer).

I had a play around with a few of the patterns, which were really easy to follow, especially with the charts that are provided in addition to the written instructions. I know that this book will be an essential part of my crochet library and a great "go-to" book. It is written is US terminology, but there is a helpful section for those who use UK terms, including a translation table for US to UK stitches.

You can buy it on amazon here:
