What better way to find the perfect border for your next crochet or knit project than to design your own? Mix and match a variety of crocheted elements, or choose an element from your fabric and expand on it. Learn how borders can enhance a project, how to deal with corners and curves, and how color choices affect design. Edie has designed borders for two best-selling crocheted edgings books, and now she shares her process with you!

Edie also enlightens and instructs through her best-selling books including, The Crochet Answer Book, Around the Corner Crochet Borders, and Learn to Knit Socks and her self-published patterns for all skill levels. Find out more by signing up for Edie’s mailing list and by reading her blog.
