The right edging can transform a plain sweater into a scene-stealing wardrobe star, notes New York–based knit designer and workshop teacher Nicky Epstein. Her book is a wide-ranging and beautifully photographed visual reference to 350 traditional and novel edgings and decorative borders—ribs, ruffles, lace, fringes, flora, and points and picots—that she has collected from around the world, reinvented, or created herself.
"[This book] embraces a love for detail. You'll turn to these pages time and time again."—Vogue Knitting
"What may be surprising is the fact that a book on a specialty topic like edgings could turn out to be as useful and lush as this one.... The instructions are easy to follow, but it is the amazingly crisp photographs of the different edgings executed in colorful yarns and set against pure white backgrounds that will get knitters' hearts pounding. This book is so inviting and so easy to use (simple triangle symbols explain from which direction the patterns are knit) that knitters may find themselves edging projects already in progress."—Booklist
