    I have this book. I bought it for my Kindle some time ago.I saw it on amazon.com, and realized it was a book I needed to have. I don’t do this often with crochet books because there is a lot of free stuff out there that can be used.I used this book to make a border for my stitch-cation Afghan, but I had it a good while before that.I actually combined a couple of different borders to make the border for that Afghan. I also figured out which border is being used for the mystery Afghan, but I won’t tell! Mikey, you’re right about it, it’s a great book to have!

    This book is awesome. I bought it on a whim from Barnes and Nobles one day and don’t regret it at all. It is easy to use and mixes and matches so well with numerous projects.

    Found it at Barnes and Noble last night. I wouldn’t have bought it without the review. It is a great book to get me out of my comfy zone & try something new! Lots of great ideas for future crochet projects.

        I’m picking up my copy today from Barnes and Noble, I am working on a crocodile baby blanket for an upcoming baby shower and looking for a very creative and unique border. I cannot wait to see the amazing borders that are enclosed in this book. Thank you so much for the resources and for the opportunity to explore my creativity.

    I also have Edie’s book and have for some time, I love, love, love it and I have mixed and matched, and used part of that one and part of another one to put together, and they turn out awesome!! I do believe that edgings make or break a nice project to utterly breathtaking, And that is this book to use for achieving that goal!! I may have to buy another one, because I am wearing this one out!!

    Thanks so very much for the lovely review! So glad you like the book! Please note that I’m “Edie”, not “Eddie” (just in case anybody is looking for me by my first name). Happy stitching!

    I went to Amazon and got the book for $14 with free shipping. I won’t get it until April 8 (probably earlier, since I have received things quicker than the estimated ship date) but that means I have another promotional credit to use later. Win-win. And there is a run on these books. There were 18 left when I ordered with more coming. You have initiated a buying frenzy! 🙂

    I just bought this book and her book on joining motifs this morning. My brother and his wife surprised me three days ago with her book Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs. After going through these books I can see me getting a lot of use out of them. The possibilities are endless.

    I copied Ruth and went to your Amazon button and ordered the book for $14.13, free shipping and it will be here Friday thanks to my Prime subscription. Thank you for the heads-up, I’m always trying to find unique borders and I hope to use this a lot.

    OMG this is so exciting. I’ve been searching for a border book because I’ve just been doing a basic row or two of SCs or DCs to finish my projects and I want something with a bit more pizzazz. This is why I love this site!!!

    I bought this book last week and picked out a few borders that I thought would go well on the Mystery Afghan. Turns out it’s none of the ones I picked after all! I love the layout and the photos. Great to see the detail of the actual stitches right alongside the diagram.

    I have 3 copies that I lend out to our Project Linus group here in Airdrie Alberta. We use the borders for fleece blankets. We also use a skip stitch roller cutter for the holes needed in the fleece to crochet the borders.

    Thanks so much for the recommendation! I’m a big Crochet Crowd fan. I’ve learned so much from your tutorials. I will definitely be checking this book out. Now I’m curious though…what other crochet books are on your top 10 list? 🙂

      Thank you for the recommendation! I am usually overwhelmed with all the books available and don’t know which one(s) to get next! As Lydia R asked, I, too, would like to know what are some of your other top 10 books?

    I have been vacillating about getting this book. Everyone I know who has it absolutely RAVES about it. So on a whim, I clicked the Amazon link in your post, Mikey, and I scooped it up for $14 and change (USD) with free shipping (with my Prime subscription). I’m excited! (=

    I have this book and it is my go too book for edging inspiration, as you said from the simple to extravagant the choice is yours to make.

    Mikey.
    I suffered a near fatal brain haemhorage a few years ago. My mum taught me to knit when I was three, but I found that afterwards I could not get the hang of it again. I took up cross stitching, which I love, I have a a page on here called Memories Created With Love if you’re interested in having a look.
    Recently I thought I would try crochet. Never got the hang if it when I was younger. Thanks to you I am having the best time ever. It’s helping with my hand eye co-ordination and because I had to learn to read again, I’m proud that I can now read a crochet pattern.
    Thank you so much. I’m learning an awful lot and having fun.

    Jane
