Description


Uneven side edges instantly downgrade any knitting project.

This is especially true for projects with open edges like blankets, scarves and cardigans.

I wrote this book to make sure this unpleasant issue never happens to YOUR knits.

The book describes twelve ways to keep the side edges neat and tidy, starting with simple one-stitch selvedges and moving to fancier decorative edgings.

You will also discover two ways to fix dropped edge stitches, a simple way to improve the side edges after the project is finished, and the best way to make decreases and increases without messing up the look of the edging.

Aside from providing all this helpful information, I did my best to make this book easy to read and easy to navigate. The book has a clean design with an easy-to-see font placed on a contrasting background.

The generous white margins make the layout feel less crowded. They are also useful if you decide to add notes.

If you prefer to keep quick reminders of each type of edging in your knitting bag, feel free to cut out Quick Reference Cards placed at the end of each chapter. They are designed specifically for this purpose.

There are lots of close-up photos throughout the book to help you master each method with no confusion. By the time the manuscript was finished, it occurred to me that this is a kind of a "picture book for knitters". I really like this concept because it makes learning so much easier. I hope you will enjoy it as well.
