Publisher Comments:

Crochet trims give the perfect finishing touch to handmade garments and accessories, or can be used to instantly revitalize old favorites and plain store-bought items. Needle-crafters of all persuasions will discover how you can quickly and easily customize everything from cardigans, sweaters and shawls to bags, cushions and throws with this collection of 150 beautiful crochet designs.


150 Crochet Trims offers a really diverse collection of trims. Suitable for both the beginner and avid enthusiast the book is organized in two main sections: first a directory of 150 trims shown actual size (allowing them to be "tested" by holding against a garment, for example). And second, full pattern instructions for each trim. The final section of the book includes a refresher course of crochet stitches and techniques used. 


The main directory is organized by types of edgings from lacy borders and beaded trims to fringes, ruffles and filet panel insertions. There is even a section on crochet buttons to coordinate with the trims. Each design is graded according to skill level and features clear instructions and beautifully photographed swatches, information on the dimensions of the finished trim and amount of yarn needed per length. In addition, each section includes a simple project demonstrating delightful ways to utilize the trims from collars to cuffs to bags to baby booties.


Sure to be a must have resource for all knitters and crocheters!
