Falling in Love with Every Which Way Crochet Boarders… A Book Review!

Falling in Love with Every Which Way Crochet Boarders… A Book Review!

Every Which Way Crochet Boarders… by Edie Eckman

EveryWhichWayCrochet


I love collecting crochet books… Flipping through the pages, letting my mind wander!  A few years ago, I purchased Edie’s first Around the Corner Crochet Boarders… It has been a staple in my project and go to book for a very long time… So when I was asked to review Edie’s new book -Every Which Way Crochet Boarders… I jumped on the chance.

Edie is an icon in the crochet world and has been designing and publishing her patterns for a very long time. Her new book is so amazing, I have fallen in love!!

Not only do you get excellent quality, color photos, the instructions are wonderful and .. Each pattern has a graph for those of you who love them!! Boarders are what make the project. Imagine an afghan with nothing around it… then, imagine it with a beautiful border!  The key is, finding one you can make that works with your project.  Edie makes that simple by giving you the stitch multiples for each pattern… All you have to do is pick the one that works!

You may wonder which one is my favorite…There are way to many to choose from! She has written 139 new border patterns for this new book…

But, Guess What????  She has been kind enough to let me share a special pattern from the book right here on my site… I chose one that is so fitting for the time of year… It is a Shamrock border!!!!

  1. Thanks for the review, opportunity and pattern! 😊
    The Instagram and Pinterest buttons weren’t working for me so I manually went there. Don’t know if anyone else had the same thing happen. All worked out though so I’m happy! 😊
