    Is it bad luck to be first? I need this book because every baby blanket that I make has a boring edge. I’d like to knit something that doesn’t look so rustic and I think some of these edgings will make even a simple knit look spectacular. Thanks!

  • Sheri

    You can never have too many crochet edge patterns!

    I don’t know nearly enough about edging options, and I’d love to learn more.

    I would love this book because the edging of a garment can really change the way it looks. Edgings can be used on everything from shawls to blankets. Thanks for a chance to win!

    I have been crocheting for a long time, since 1985 at least, and have worked primarily with worsted weight yarns making afghans. Recently I’ve become interested in making garments with lighter-weight yarns, and I really like the designs of Kristin Omdahl. I find them to be very flattering. This prize would enable me to increase my skills in garment-making.

  • Sheila

    I’m still a newbie at crocheting. This would be a great reference book for me and help me expand my skills.

  • Meg Howard

    I’ve been meaning to learn how to crochet for a very long time…I’m a pretty darn accomplished knitter but have never learned past the simple chain or poorly crocheted single crochet edge. With my own copy of this book I’m certain to pick up a hook and really go after some of the beautiful techniques shown here! And besides, shortly I will have a plethora of grandbaby clothes to knit!!

  • MelodyJ

    I need to take on crocheting to the next level. I love making hats but I’m ready for something new and different.

  • Patricia

    One of the most fantastic things about knitting is you are never done learning. I am now ready to begin to enhance projects with edgings and I would love to win this gift!

  • Jessica

    That looks like a wonderful book. I don’t crochet nearly enough myself and it looks like a great addition to any crafters library.

  • betford

    I have a closetful of woven shawls and wraps (I LOVE! them), but several of them seem, well, unfinished. Some of these lovely, lovely edgings would be just the thing!

  • Steff

    What a lovely book, I’m excited to take a look at it! Crafting runs in my family and for years I was so frustrated that I couldn’t get the hang of crocheting! Now I have finally mastered it in my 30s and one of the reasons I set out to learn how no matter what was because of the amazing edgings that are possible in crochet, no lie! So a book like this is totally up my alley!
