Around the Corner Crochet Borders - Marketing Brochure

Published by Storey Publishing
A marketing brochure for our upcoming title Around the Corner Crochet Borders, available wherever books are sold in May 2010.

ISBN: 978-1-60342-538-4


When it comes time to put the finishing touches on the edges of a fiber project, a crochet border is the perfect solution. Edgings are essential adornments to the most popular knit and crochet pieces — blankets, scarves, and afghans. But borders can do so much more; they give handmade goods a delightful finishing touch, serve as focal points, tidy uneven edges, and add handcrafted flair to store-bought apparel.
Borders often require “turning a corner” — shaping the edgings around a 90-degree angle without breaking the pattern. This is rarely simple; add too few stitches at a corner and the work rounds inward; too many stitches, and the piece begins to ruffle awkwardly. Unfortunately, most published edging patterns fail to include specific instructions for turning the corner, leaving crafters to fend for themselves.
Edie Eckman comes to the rescue in Around the Corner Crochet Borders, a collection of 150 colorful crochet frames, each with detailed instructions for working around a corner. Instructions are offered both as text and as charts for working in-the-round; back-and-forth charts are also included for when that method is more appropriate. Photographs of finished borders, each turning a 90-degree corner, allow readers to see the details up close. Borders range from the delicate to the flamboyant and are sure to appeal to a new generation of trend-setting crafters.
Offering practical solutions to one of needlecraft’s most vexing challenges, Around the Corner Crochet Borders is an essential addition to every crocheter’s reference library. With this book, marvelous crochet borders are just around the corner.

Edie Eckman is the author of The Crochet Answer Book and Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs. She is also a teacher, writer, designer, and editor whose articles and designs have appeared in Interweave Crochet, Knitting, Knit’N’Style, and many other magazines. Edie lives in Waynesboro, Virginia.
